All Grain Brewing / Water Help..
« on: November 09, 2009, 08:40:19 AM »
Hi all,
Ive been brewing all grain beers with good success using spring water, filtered water and my tap water for about 5 years now.
I want to hone in on quality control and want to start dabbling into making my own water.
I want to start making different water profiles for the variety of styles using RO water since it seem to be inabundances her in Tampa.. My tap water is less ideal for making great beer.
I havent gotten any reports on mineral content of my water or have'nt I sent out for any..
I somewhat understand the basic of the brewing salts and what they achieve.
But I am somewhat lost on the quantities and such as it relates to the different calculators.
I have this calculator that am toying with and it seems pretty straight forward..
I am inputting quantities of salts until I reach the desired water profile, but it seems all greek to me.???
So I'm reaching out to you all to get the laymans terms on water and understanding.
Heres the calculator I have...

Thanks Greg
