Holy water additives batman, I know the lake water sucks but is that your usual water routine? 2 tbsp of 5.2 along with all the other stuff seems excessive. I love the hop schedule. I always put sugar in my IPAs to get the a little drier personally.

Edit: sorry, 1tbsp. Still it all seems like a lot.

Wow don't have a clue! But I'm interested in how it turns out.


For my taste I'd back off on some of the malts and let the hops shine through..especially the caramel, 20 oz seems like a lot. Also maybe move some of the 5 min hops to flame out and do a hop stand at 180 for 20 min. But I've not used any of these hops yet.

Agreed on the water but he is starting with distiller. That said starting with distiller should really not need the 5.2...just the salts.

+1 on using sugar to dry ipa...plus mash low for high attenuation.

Using RO/Distilled water with adding water salts. I usually only use .5 tsp on lighter beers with low alkalinity, it was preset for the stout I did with tap. I tend to like my IPA's to tread the line between slightly crisp to malty, kinda like a two hearted in mouth feel. Michigan style

Ca: 89.3
Mg: 9.2
Na: 16.9
SO4: 209.8
Cl: 30
HCO3: 44.7

SO4 : Cl ~ 7 : 1 (personally love this ratio, tried others for IPA's, my favorite)
