Hoping some of you water experts can give me a quick review of this water report..

I hope soon I can dive into the Bru'n Water spreadsheet but just do not have the time right now so I was hoping some of you may chime in..

Thanks in advance!

Good water. Brew with it as it is or dilute 1:1 with RO and follow the Primer to get started.

You're ready to go. Calcium should be enhanced and there is plenty of room to add chloride or sulfate to suit your tastes. The alkalinity may be slightly high for some styles, but the relatively modest level should be easy to correct with acidification. Lactic acid should be fine for this case since you will be unlikely to reach the taste threshold. Dilution should not really be necessary since the mineralization is so low for this water.
