Kenelard is correct.Sodium, Bicarbonate, Alkalinity and Chlorides are all elevated. You can

very pale beers,...

Safa,My experience doesn't show a mineral flavor at the Pale Ale Profile levels - but that said
- you might be much more sensitive to sulfates than I. It is really your call. I tried to

Hi Safa,With no additions I am seeing a 5.6 mash pH prediction. So you need acidity not

weighs in - I do not...
