    Difficulty matching British water profile

    Hi – I am trying to brew a clone of a beer I used to drink a lot of in England and have tried the recipe several times, but it has missed the mark. I decided to delve more into the water profile and managed to get a profile from the brewery and I have entered the characteristics into Bru’n...

    First Time Using 100% RO water on Bru'n Water

    Hi all - I'm brewing up a 5 gallon light bodied IPA using 100% RO water in both the mash (3.9 gallons) and the sparge (5.1 gallons). I selected the Pale Ale water profile off of Bru'n Water because it says its good for hoppy beers. The exact profile is: Cal: 140 Mg: 18 Na: 25 SO4: 300 Cl: 55...

    Bru'n Water and darker crystal malts

    When I add Crisp Medium Crystal (240 EBC) to a recipe in Bru'n Water it flags the line item as red if the Grain Type dropdown is "Crystal Malt".

    Bru'n water question

    I have got a problem with my water assay. My water source comes from a mixture of two rivers where the mineral content varies over the seasons. River 1 the alkalinity varies from 41 to 118 while river 2 varies from 25 to 39. The other minerals (Ca, Na, Mg, Cl and SO4) are also all over the...

    Pickling lime addition to mash

    I'm brewing an imperial American porter tonight. I use Bru'n Water to adjust my water (tap, not RO) and am planning to add a small amount of pickling lime to raise the mash pH. I understand that pickling lime should be added to the mash after dough-in as needed for pH adjustments. My question...
