I'm thinking about changing my handle to "Mr Obvious".

The EZ Water Calc thread is quite long and I read most all of it and then posted.

I've used TH's EZ Water Calculator, (version 3) for awhile now and my beers have improved, improved A LOT!

So why would I like to change my handle? Cause it's quite blatantly clear that "TH" is truly a good person (as most homebrewers are)and he gives so much to this community.

Could you imagine paying for the research he has put into his work and the results? But he doesn't ask for anything, just provides some great info in the name of beer and continuosly improves and provides us more info and our cost is nothing.

But, I haven't read all of this thread yet, it's getting a bit late in the night. TH, have you started taking donations yet? I'd be more than happy to send some dinero your way for what you have contributed to this community. If you are not taking cash then at least let me buy you another years membership!

Thanks for what you have given to us TH.

With great appreciation,

Dan

Hey thanks for the kind words Dan. And for the donation too! Perfect "pick-me-up" for a Monday morning. Well that and finding out that the Tigers came back to win after being down 3 in the 10th yesterday...

Call me lazy, but I don't want to sort through 31 pages of conversation that may not contain the answer to my question, so I apologize in advance to any hall-monitor types ;-)

I am about to brew my first beer, an all-grain Amber Ale recipe. I am building water profiles from 100% RO, primarily to avoid chlorine. I feel like I am chasing my tail with respect to the mash pH and RA. To lower the mash pH, it lowers the RA (duh). I'm looking for a RA of ~40-60 (currently 40) but to get that, the mash pH is too high (5.57 in my current attempt). I find myself wondering if I am paying too much attention to mash pH, because everything else: Chloride/Sulfate ratio, and "Step 5 Resulting Water Profile" ranges are all green.

In short, how can I lower the mash pH while raising the RA? What am I missing?

Steve

RA is not what matters. Only the mash pH matters. What the program is trying to tell you is that the RA you are unfortunately trying to achieve, is not right for your grist.
