    I'd like to get a test done on my tap water for brewing, and while I'm doing it I thought I may
    as well get it checked for lead. The overall water utility report is OK on lead, but I live in

    [quote=midlantic;6284860]I think these types of pilsners are allowed to have small amounts of
    diacetyl, but pilsner U does not. At least as far as I would say. I haf recently gone through
