Thats ok i will play around with these figures on brud water as ill have to figure it out myself but just double checking incase i do something wrong along the way!I'm not big on "water profiles" so I'm not the best one to be asked this question. Calcium Chloride for sure, and some acid to reduce the alkalinity.
Cool so just to be sure!!I haven't guessed on the Potassium (K+) ion yet, but if forced to guess, I'd guess 1 to 2 mg/L.
Consider Carbonate and Iron to be zero mg/L.Cool so just to be sure!!
Carbonate =1 mg/l
Calcium = 23.8 mg/l
Magnesium = 6.2 mg/l
Phosphorus = 1/2 mg/l
Iron = 1mg/l
As the iron is 12ng/l im assuming its a much lower value
A reliable portable RODI system with an inline TDS meter can be gotten for less than $100. Saves one the hassle of lugging gallons of water home each time you want to brew.I don’t trust that my city water will always agree with the water reports. I prefer a consistent, blank slate. I use distilled water and build up to the water profile I want for each batch. At 89 cents a gallon I can afford to purchase the distilled water.
