Hiya Yooper, Do you happen to know what your water alkalinity was for this recipe?

I have the ingredients on hand... seems like a nice pale ale. But I'm stumbling over the water additions. Thanks in advance! - N_G

Hc03 was 94. (Actually, 93.9)

I am still a bit rusty on my water chemistry but I thought Alkalinity was expressed as ppm of CaCO3 ?

I use Brunwater spreadsheets to work out my profiles based on my water report. My Alkalinity for my pale ale is 91.

Either/Or.

HCO3 is what I have. It can easily be converted to CaC03 by simple math.

Sorry for the short reply- I got interrupted. Darn work at all that!

Anyway, the conversion is explained here: http://www.cdph.ca.gov/certlic/drink...onversions.pdf

This sounds really good. So for a 5 gallon batch, PM, I'd just cut the hops in half? Thanks!

Yes, that would work great. I originally had all amarillo for the 1 minute addition, and I think that would be good too- but I found that ounce of 7Cs in the freezer so decided to use them then.

Thanks... That is what bru'n'water came up with when I balanced the cations & anions. Thanks Yooper for the recipe I will brew it in 2 weeks and report back. Cheers!

I forgot that I was going to post a picture! Since I'm drinking it right now, I just took a quick photo, so you can see the color.

It's actually beautifully clear, with a nice lacing on the glass (from the wheat I assume). The glass has some condensation on it, so it's hard to see well through it in the photo.
