I cater regularly and the 10'x10' tents are pretty inexpensive for what you get. Mine came with 3 sides that button on and provide wind protection. This is a very important feature which will save...

You should be right in the ballpark for brewing light pilsens. Maybe you should see what your non filtered water consists of. An 8.1 pH is pretty difficult to overcome even with a protein rest. ...
