    I'm building up my starter right now and wondering if my process will be good enough to
    attenuate this beer. I just pitched a fresh pure pitch packet of WLP530 into 1.5L @ 1.035
    starter. Once this is ...

    I see that there is a hefty price tag on that book, maybe a little more than I can do, although
    I love reading up on this stuff.The fact of the matter is, though, that if I'm making a beer
    that will f...

    That makes sense, I was hoping you and/or Martin would weight in as the experts. I think I was
    getting hung up on specific water profiles and seeing the low sulfate or chloride levels of
    Achouffe or C...

    Agreed, but one thing I've noticed about the famous belgian water profiles is that they all
    have low levels of both sulfate and chloride (with a ratio of about 1 to 1). I'm not entirely
    sure how to ge...

    That's exactly what I need to play around with. I was looking into increasing the calcium with
    gypsum since my sulfates are lower than my chloride. But sulfate increases at a faster rate
    than calcium ...

    Nope, I've already done the conversion for the Sulfate. Direct Ward results were 5ppm which I
    multiplied by 3 already.Thanks for the confirmation. I'm going to be taking the RO filter off
    my Amazon sh...

    So I finally got around to submitting a sample to Ward Labs to finally have my home water
    profile. I feel like we got very lucky as the results are appear to be a good base for most all
    beers as much ...

    yup, the brett will take care of it. that is in fact a lot of sugar for brett. give it at least
    6 months.Ok, I initially figured that just given time, it would eventually complete, but then
    got worrie...

    I'm getting ready to pitch some brett into a 5 gallon batch on of a Belgian Ale. I created a
    300mL starter of 1.030 wort and poured it over the dregs of a fresh local nanobrew's unfiltered
    brett saiso...

    Thanks, I emailed them with no response so I figured I'd check here. Makes sense as they do
    provide detail on their beer discriptions so the lack on info hints towards you being correct
    that there is ...
