I haven't tested the water makeup with a pale ale yet, but the ZD clone will be my guinea pig. Hopefully there won't be trouble with the water profile and pH. Would hate to have to treat the water much.

If you get some free time and you are in my redneck area give me shout. suprchunk@gmail.com
I dont know if your water profile is close to mine or way off, but i rarely put anything in my water and i dont notice any issues...of course that is one aspect of my brewing i am looking to improve and start tailoring the water profile to the style i am making.

Second that. I am going to ask him about doing group buys for grain the next time I am in there. I need a bunch of bags of base and crystals.

I am beginning to think the water here is pretty good. Hard to believe with the amount of chlorine I smell in the water though. Haven't had any off flavors associated with it yet. Last time I had water this good was, surprisingly, in Gulfport, MS. Some of the best beers I made were with that water. And it's looking like I'm in for a treat here as well.

Will be brewing almost everyday next week if anyone wants to stop by.

I need to buy a mill...that's one thing I don't have yet. so it prevents me from buying in bulk right now. I am trying to get my keezer finished first. almost there with it though. I will have 6 kegs so I can have a good varieity without bottling...I hate bottling!

from my understanding chlorine in water boils off. so that is why that does have any effect on your beer. I remember when I made extract and I used the tap water to top up...you could definitely taste it then! I learned from that! haha

Yes chlorine boils off. I was meaning that they must not use any chloramines along with that. Those do not boil off.

I have an extra mill if you would like. It's an old Barley Crusher.
