where can i find "martin's spreadsheet"?
i'll be the first to admit that i don't have a sophisticated understanding of water chemistry, but i'm trying to ameliorate this glaring deficiency. from what i've been told, our water source where i brew is characterized by temporary hardness. my typical regimen is to run my brew water through a charcoal chlorine filter, pre-boil (to drive off bicarbonates), then brew with it. it's hard to say what my mash pH would come out as, since i always use mash 5.2 in the tun (and consistently get a pH reading of 5.2 in my mash).
does my regimen seem reasonable?
anybody out there with a similar water profile that would suggest otherwise?
