It can be fixed by not buying tickets from scalpers...

From what I've been reading I'm not convinced that everyone that bought tickets were AHA members!

If my daughter was dating someone just like me I'd shoot him.

It's well water. I hope there's no chloride.  :)  I plan on picking a water profile each time I brew. It's going to be another learning curve. I can see my water is good for light beers. I actually thought is was no good for hoppy beers. Seems my sulfates (hardness?) are a bit low. Like I said earlier, I'm reading and learning...

Thanks guys. A sand separator and 20 micron whole house filter helps... ;D I was originally going to install an RO filter but from what I can tell I might not need it. Seems I can add chemicalls to get most of the water profiles that I might use.

Not sure what it means yet but I'm reading up on it. I downloaded the Bru N Water spreadsheet and it shows my cation/anions ratio is .49 and should be lower. Am I misinterpreting my report or can this be possible? My next brew is an IPA. I'm going with the Pale Ale water profile. Is this a good start?

Starting Profile      ppm      
Ca         33   
Mg         2   
Na         8   
SO4         21   
Cl         0   
HCO3      76   

Hardness      91   (ppm as CaCO3)
Alkalinity      63   (ppm as CaCO3)
RA          38   
SO4/Cl      0.00

That was a great show. I tried to go to his website to order some albums and most of them are sold out!

Love my Mexican Lager. I'll brew mine next month. WLP940 yeast is a must...

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Is my pH OK?
« on: February 25, 2013, 04:18:27 PM »
Thanks guys, I'll leave it be. I have the ambient temp up to 72F. I started at 63F and let the ambient rise to about 68F. I bumped up the temp after racking. I only had 6.2% C-malts and mashed at 131 & 150 so I fully expect to get into the low 20's. I used lactic acid to get my water (for RIMS and sparge) down to a 5.4 pH range before mashing. Probably don't need to do that when I use a good amount of roasted malts. I'll check it a few weeks and pitch some CBC1 if I feel I need to get it any lower...
