    Couldn't help but notice your grain bill includes ~23% crystal malt, far too much for a lager
    IMHO. I'd shoot for more like 5-7% (or less!) might need a bit of acid malt (or other source of
    acid) to k...

    Ok, after I've zeroed out my alkalinity, I'll tell the software it's zero, do I also tell it
    the pH is 5.4 (or whatever I'm shooting for)?

    Thanks AJ!

    I recommend diluting some of your stock Phosphoric Acid down to a more workable concentration,
    like 42.5%, 40%, 21.25%, 20% or whatever you fancy. At 85% a drop or two more or less can make
    a big diff...

    What about a cheap aquarium test kit for hardness? They are easy to use, cheap, and can give
    you a good estimate as to the alkalinity in your water.That's exactly what I was thinking.

    Any thoughts on an alkalinity meter?

    I must have typed that wrong it's 85%.

    Thanks, Martin! So if I were to use the sparge acidification page to adjust my mash water
    alkalinity, I could use the resultant pH from that as my target, correct? I believe my acid
    strength may not b...

    In my last several attempts to reduce/eliminate alkalinity from the mash liquor, I've ended up
    with a much lower mash pH than predicted. (Ex: starting water pH 7.6, CaCO3 105ppm, attempting
    to lower t...

    I have heard this before, but how distinctive? Is it in unpleasant?I also have a hard time
    believing 1 or 2 oz. of it would have any effect, and why use that little when you could use
    5-10 percent fla...
