i'm brewing an alpha king clone soon and i'm wondering if anyone knows if three floyds treats their water. does anyone have a profile of munster's water. you can tell that the water is right in their beers.

Im sure if they use city water they treat it. Do a google search for the local water, it has always worked for me.

A decent alpha king clone would probably turn into a house brew for me.

If you want the water they use go get a 5 gallon bucket of lake Michigan water and filter it. Same stuff they use.

the recipe i'm using is from byo clones. i've brewed the alesmith double ipa and it was good. ive heard fair reviews on others from this source. one concern i have is that there are 11 malts. i'm unsure if the recipe is available online but i bet it is.
