    I also use RO water and add minerals. As Martin said, just add your sparge additions directly

    BRAAF,TSP is trisodium phosphate. It's a pretty strong degreaser. Around these parts, it's sold

    BRAAF,Whenever I get a new piece of hardware like a valve or whatnot is to totally disassemble
    it and give it a good soak in hot water with a good dose of TSP. The TSP strips the
