I'm trying to learn about water chemistry. Moving to our new house on Monday, hoping to brew next weekend. Can you help me in reading this, and tell me how the water in the city is. What I would need to add or get rid of. Looking to make our hops 'pop' more like west coast IPAs. Right now using Davie city water we get a nice floral taste that melds well with malts, but hops don't really stand out as much as I like. Thank you!

That report only shows the sodium content (which is appropriately low). No other information on the water's suitability for brewing is shown. It appears that you should plan on sending a sample to a water quality lab for testing.

My experience with water from other South Florida communities suggests that this water is likely to be suited for brewing with minor adjustments to its alkalinity.
