I pulled something similar off line for my town's water report. When it didn't have all the

coolers as mash tun and HLT, and fly sparge. 60 min mash, and often a 90min boil. Still using

Try here: right that it's missing from the TF website. This could be for a number of reasons,

Bru'n Water has always been just about spot-on for me. That was until my last brew... dumped in

Your beer's doneNo need for any more gravity readings.It's had ample time.Cold crash away and
