That is pretty amazing water. Fundamentally you will simply need to treat for chlorine/chloramine with active charcoal filtering and/or campden tablets.

They are estimates... meaning precision is variable. That said, I find Bru'n pretty accurate, and when it isn't - there has been a user input error on my part. If you are nervous about how much acid...

If your filter has the DI stage, then effectively you are removing all of the ions... I would use the DI selection.

I always take AJ's advice with a large dose of alkalinity (lime (is) not bicarbonate)... and Yooper's with a bit of chloride (cause she is sweet)... and... now that metaphor is now terribly abused!

What Saison Water Profiles Have You Had Success With?
