Can anyone recommend good testing kits for brewing water? In particular, I'm looking to test bicarbonate levels.
I just had my first run of decarbonating water with pickling lime. It left a huge amount of white precipitate at the bottom of the brew kettle, so it seemed to work to at least some degree.
I'm going to send a sample to Ward Labs to get a baseline set of numbers, but moving forward I'd like a quicker, cheaper method to test.
Any help is appreciated!
