All you water chemists sharpen yer pencils:
Total Hardness (CaCO3):128
Total Alkalinity, CaCO3: 113
That's straight from my well, and thru a carbon filter (to remove the Iron which is pretty high). We have a "softener" (i guess that's what it is- bags of salt etc.) but the water tested came straight from the well/carbon filter. Do you think the water softener water would be better, should I get that tested, or stick to using bottled/spring water? I have noticed sometimes the filtered well water has a slight rotten egg smell. I live in Davidsonville MD. Is treating it an option, or beyond hope for brewing with? what should I do?
