    I not only enjoy the sample when I rack to the keg, I enjoy the sample pre-fermentation. When I
    put it in the keg, it is usually a decent temp for drinking (65) and is lightly carbonated. If
    it has be...

    Not sure that is totally true I have done many mashes with straight RO water and they turn out
    fine. A brew buddy of mine has won a few first place blue ribbons with just RO water. That
    begin said I a...

    I think you get the jist based on the other replies, but I will just state it plainly.You can
    not mash with RO water unless you add back some minerals. You get Ca from gypsum, you can get

    Hey all,I have been researching getting back into brewing and stumbled upon this site. Really
    found some nice pics and tips concerning the brew system. I did about 35 all grain mashes in
    Australia whe...

    Thanks for the tips. Palmer in "How to Brew" generally says bad things about how sulfates in
    mash water. I do notice, however, that the Burton-on-Trent water is 820 ppm sulfate.I was doing
    some resear...

    I'm new to this forum. I haven't mashed in 10 years but it is time to try again. I just got a
    water report from the city and my sulfates are 978 ppm. Can I brew with this? I don't have a
