Very nice, that is a whole lot of details there. I was wondering why you have the Ca so high though? What are you trying to bring out of the beer? Does this beer benefit from the hardness being up there?

This is a Dortmund water profile... Mosher I think. I am just trying to bring out the malt more, keep the hops back. I wish there was a "Hefe" water profile, but there isnt. I used a pale ale profile for my SNPA, this I am just trying a Dortmund to keep the hops back where they belong so that I can taste the malt and the yeast characteristics.

hmm.... I don't know why that profile would have more sulfate than cloride if it was trying to enhance the malt. Typically a CL to SO4 ratio like yours would lead to enhancing the bitterness, you would need to reverse those number to enhance the malt.

I see what you mean, the profile for Dortmund germany in beersmith has the following description:

Hard water for strong, well hopped amber lagers. Enhances malty flavor of beer.

It also has numbers close to the same range as yours.

Yeah, I mean I am sort of new to building my water, so I am winging it. I mean, I used to use half distilled and half spring water so there was no science to it.

I did notice a difference in the hop perception when I used Moshers ideal pale ale profile. We will see how this works out!

I will have to tune in for this! I will be kegging my Hefe tomorrow.

My system is nearly complete, Pol... Just have to install the stir motor and run my 240v line to the garage

Well, update again, I will be mashing in around 10AM today... that is the plan.

Water salts are measured, HLT is almost up to temp, hops are measured and the grain is getting crushed here in about 15 minutes.
