I'm looking for some help getting started with either Palmer's Mash RA, EZ Water, Bru'n Water, or Kai's.
I've tried the first 3 and the end result is I now have no clue what to do.
Is one spreadsheet more accurate than the other?
For the sake of argument, lets say I wanted to brew 5 gallons of oatmeal stout. Can anyone give me a nudge in the right direction?
Here's my Ward Labs report:
Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) Est, ppm 495

Cations / Anions, me/L 8.5 / 7.8
