So my question relates to the water chemistry primer.
Say that you want a baseline water profile with 1 gm cacl per gallon. My question is related to boil off. Would you treat the water based on your pre boil water volume or your post boil volume?
Similar to how o.g. incresases as the liquid is boiled off, does the cacl (or other mineral additions) concentration increase as liquid is boiled off?
For instance if your preboil volume is 9.25 gallons and you treat with 9.25 gms of cacl but then boil down to 7.0 gallons I assume you now have greater than a 1 gm per gallon ratio of cacl
I realize that the difference is negligible and I wouldn't likely be able to taste the difference. I am just curious for my own understanding.
