All Grain Brewing / Re: Astringency Question

Haven't brewed too many batches yet, but some of my English Pale Ale batches were astringent due to excess carbonates I used to increase the pH.  After a batch, I discovered my pH test strips were garbage and invested in a decent pH meter and standards.  When I cut the carbonates back to <50 ppm and maintained a 5.3 pH the astringency was gone.  Not sure, but I suspect the tannins were coming mostly out of the hops.
