Anyone use this? I picked some up the other day but won't be brewing for another day or two. I can't find any data about actual mineral content.

It says purified, this usually means RO. Great for beer, bad for drinking.

Right but it also says "with minerals added for flavor" this makes me nervous about adding much to it without knowing specifics.

That is a conundrum.

Just keep in mind RO is usually about 25c/gallon at your local water store.

I am tempted to assume mineral content is fine for brewing and maybe throw in some gypsum since I'm making an IIPA
