Yes, certainly wasn't planning on adding CaCO3. I understand the hardness level indicated is related to the Ca and Mg amounts found in solution. Would still not shy away from 450ppm+ sulfate levels...

Haven't emailed them in this regard. Might be worth a shot.

The Mg and K weren't particularly eye-catching. Any thoughts on the Cl levels? I wasn't aware that malt contributed much to those levels.
