No I do not know what the water profile is because I don't use city water. I get all my water from a Crystal Gyser machine at the grocery store. Nice clean filtered non-chlorine water, .39 cents a gallon

If you use Brewer's Friend Water Chemistry Calculator and 8gallons (i don't know how much your recipe asks for) of RO water (zero source minerals), you can achieve Edinburgh water by adding the following:

11.0g chalk
3.8g baking soda
2.0g gypsum
2.5g calcium chloride
6.0g epsom salt
0.4g canning salt

I actually use a total of 11 gallons of water for a 5 gallon batch. 7 gallons to mash and 4 to sparge.

But I will definitely use that calculator in the future. Thanks so much for your help!
