Learn to get your Residual Alkalinity in order and you wont need 5.2. I used to use it but after using John Palmer spreed sheet I hit 5.3-5.4 each time in my mash. I have an almost new container of 5.2 someone can have if they pay the shipping.
And how do I get my Residual Alkalinity in order??? I can't get any chemical analyze on my water from the water people. I can only get what much BAD crap is NO in the water but nothing on what makes up the water.
I sent my water away for analysis and did all the minerals to get everything just right for ONE brew, then I went back to 5.2. I use 5.2 in the mash then add other minerals to the boil to make sure the flavor comes out right. This way I can mess with levels of things like Na, SO4, and Cl, etc without worrying about how it is going to affect the mash Ph. To me that's the easy and effective way.
