I am planning to brew a recipe I created this weekend. It's called Punk Munk Ale
I have been using Deer Park bottled water for my last several batches, but I really want to use my tap water this time to really give a "localized" flavor to the beer. (I live in Montgomery County, MD)
Our water is pretty alkaline @ 7.2 pH, so I'm wondering if brewing a dark beer would be ideal since the darker grains should add some acidity, thereby lowering the pH. I've read most of the HowToBrew website, so I'm going forward with that limited knowledge here....
Maybe someone who really knows their stuff can look at my recipie and give me an opinion about what I should and should not do??
I really enjoy these boards.... I'm learning a ton of useful info!!
