    There's no way deer could get to it, but I've seen rabbits running around. I'm going to put up
    chicken wire tomorrow and hope it's not birds. Still fuming about the ****head that did this.

    I planted a Cascade and a Centennial rhizome 2 weeks ago. The Centennial was growing well with
    3 shoots about 4 inches long (Cascade has yet to emerge). I just found the Centennial rhizome
    laying on t...

    Oh I misunderstood your phrasing. Thanks for all the explanation on this difficult topic of
    water chemistry. I understand a lot more now. In fact, I just did a taste test with the
    filtered water, wate...

    Ah I see, thank you. Are there 10" filters available that work in the same manner as the Brita
    filter? How would I identify these?The Brita also has particulate and activated carbon
    filtration so it t...

    I bought a water filter and just tried it out. After running it for about 10 minutes at 0.5gpm
    I took a sample to test the pH and taste. tastes good, like my Brita filtered water in the
    fridge. Howev...

    Right, well my 'Chlorides' count from my local water report is 19.5 mg/l and the 'Free Residual
    Chlorine' is 0.52 mg/l. To my understanding these are quite low. Could these levels still give
    my beer a...

    No but I'll have one this weekend. The drinking water out of the tap tastes fine though. Does
    brewing accentuate mineral/chemical flavors present in the water?

    Right, a hose containing stagnant warm water for a period of time makes sense, but this is a
    brand new 15ft hose only used indoors from a brand new laundry sink. I've only filled my kettle
    with it usi...

    Yea it just seems weird because the water is running through the hose at maybe 55F and making
    contact with the walls for all of 3 seconds tops (it's a 15ft hose). Is that really enough to
    give the wat...

  • Posted in thread: Light beers (SRM < 10ish) with strange off-flavor on 04-16-2014 at 01:32 AM
    So something occurred to me in my reading about water filtration that may make a ton of sense
    why my beers taste a little off. The problem began when I started supplying the water to my
    kettle by way ...
