    Just an FYI and not trying to be the safety police but be careful using a winch to lift
    something. They are usually rated as to what they can pull not as to what they can lift, that's
    not really a saf...

    There are plenty options to lift grain. I'm using a ratchet tie down for now, but I'll likely
    switch to a boat winch (living in the south allows for those always hanging around). You could
    also get a ...

    BTW, I would love to do an all grain double batch BIAB, but I haven't figured out how to
    comfortably lift a bag with 20+ lbs. (dry) of wet grains so far. I'm thinking about a ladder
    with a pulley syst...

    Hardness is not the same as bicarbonate. It looks like the report does not provide bicarbonate
    or alkalinity to help you with your pH estimate. The Brun Water water knowledge page on the
    website shows...

    You should be able to get a pretty good water report from the city, even if the data is

    I think Franks has a water machine- 5 gal for a $1. don't think it's RO but it is filtered.
    I've used filtered water before and add gypsum and calcium chloride and it worked fine. I fine
    using filtere...

    My local grocery store has a Glacier RO machine that costs $1.75 for 5 gallons. I prefer to
    save as much as I can, but for me the 10 gallons I need is worth it for my sanity. If you need
    more than tha...

    Brun water has some good info on the 5.2 stabilzer. One thing is that it adds sodium to your
    beer, so the amount you add and the amount present in your water could create a profile
    undesirable for you...

    Are you using tap water? I don't know about yours but my tap water sucks and I'm south of
    you.I've been using filtered and distilled mixed 50/50 but I only brew 3 gallon batches. That
    could get expens...
