The cost of a brewing program like ProMash or Beersmith is $20-$25.
This program provides, IMO, at least as much value as programs like them.
Not saying you have to contribute $20-$25., just that if you did, you'd still be getting your money's worth.

I gave $20.  Money well spent.

Any idea of what an appropriate donation is?  I don't want to be cheap but I am also not rich.


Its easier than that on the supporters version of Bru'n Water.  The sparge acidification sheet has a dilution calculator built into it and the alkalinity of the tap water from the input sheet is automatically brought over.

How do you become a supporter?

On a light beer I am diluting with 50% RO.  On the sparge acidification and adjustment summary it appears it is not being taken into consideration.  How do I figure out how much acid to add to the sparge when diluting with RO?  What about spraging with 100% RO?

Back to the dark beer, So the mash PH is the key and only use the desired RA as a starting point.  If it is off don't worry about it.  How does this look?  I have removed most of the salts, just enough to make the malty profile.

I am having trouble figuring out how to use this spreadsheet.  I have read the instructions and water knowledge but still am having troubles.  If you look at the attachments in order for me to get the mash PH correct at 5.4 I had to acidify so much that the RA is now -15 where ideal is 82.  Why are these so far apart?
