My Ward Labs report on my water (Baltimore)
So here is my tap water report I just got back from Ward Labs. If anyone lives in the Baltimore area and wants to use this, I should note that this is from the 21236 area code, and I believe is from the Loch Raven reservoir.
I've downloaded Brun Water, but I haven't messed around with it yet.
I'm curious what you experts think about it in general (?).
My next batch that I will be brewing this weekend is going to be a Pale Ale, so I'll have to check-out Brun Water and figure out what adjustments to make.
