Default How about separate brew science and water forums?

Because it seems like 90% of the threads in brew science are something along the lines of "what do you think of my water report?"

It would be a lot easier to look through the brew science forum if it wasn't so bogged down with people asking for interpretations of their water report, chlorine removal, etc.

Let me ask the mods what they think.

Anyone else think we should have a water report forum?

Yes please! Water adjustments is something I'm really interested in and it would be great to have a dedicated section for it!

It might make sense for it to be a subforum of the Brew Science section. Need to be careful what I wish for...I see a lot of thread moving in my future...

I don't care either way. It does seem like the majority of the threads in the Brew Science forum do ask about water. But it doesn't seem like many "other" science questions are being asked.
