    Thanks. I will work with what I have now and do have a water softener in house for our hard water but obviously don't use this for brewing.

    water profile question

    I thank you again for answering but I do not know how to proceed in getting the alkalinity in the 20-40 you suggest. I will research more.

    water profile question

    That 110 alkalinity is from the pale ale profile I found. Are you saying my 143 for local water source is to high? Thanks for reply. What adjustment would you have me try? Thanks again.

    grain and hop question

    Thanks you both. Yes the AA % was close. You are right I could have adjusted . I figure this is a malt style beer and over 13.5 g in the kettle for boil it should not make a bid difference. Total hops for the beer doubles is only 4 oz.

Also, recepie calls for medium crystal and a...

I fermented about 2 weeks and put a bag in and set it at 30 psi for a few days at room temp and then put it in keezer at 10 psi for a few days...
