    You basically have three choices.1. You can go back to your bottled water if you were happy
    with the results you were getting and forget about this whole pH thing until you run into a
    grain bill that ...

    It could be that the new water source is higher in alkalinity and the mash pH would be higher.
    That can cause astringency, as can sparging with alkaline water. It's not an issue for most of
    us when ma...

    I disagree. My IIPA recipe has 2 pounds of C-40 in it (11 gallon) and it is very brightly
    hopped (and yellow due to the 23 pounds of 2-row). CaraRed will add a very nice character to
