Hey all -
I've always used the "Yellow-Bitter" profile, but on a whim last time, I used the "Pale Ale Profile" in martin's sheet last IPA and I don't think I really cared for it - beer tasted a bit too minerally, sharp and the body was not what I was used to. Could be other factors, but I am a little gun-shy to use that profile again.
Am brewing IPA again today and tomorrow for a big local festival, and was thinking of this instead:
starting with RO: add 10gm gypsum, 4.4 epsom, 2.6gm CaCl
Expected pH 5.3
I like the initial look of this prior to brewing since i still get a high Sulfate vs. Chloride ratio and more importantly, the bicarb is low while in the PA profile its almost 110.
