What happens to my water profile if I run it through a charcoal filter?
Does it strip it of everything?
Does it just get rid of chlorine?
Or should I just go with the water report and adjust it from there without running it through the filter?
I haven't been able to brew a hoppy beer, so my water profile does not suit my taste. Just as a test I added 5 oz+ of hops to a pale ale recipe and it tasted like a ordinary mild pale ale. Beersmith calculated I should have been in the 80-100 ibu range, tasted like it was around 15 ibu.
I'll dig up the report and post it later.
I did read this thread and other but still have questions:
