Pull grain for decoction,  liquid for pH.

Thanks guys, the bicarbonate was calculated using John Palmer's spreadsheets to hit the desired SRM. I'm new to water treatment. I just read the book Water: A comprehensive guide for brewers and some of Palmer's other stuff within the month as an introduction so I admit I may well be making some rookie mistakes. I basically use beer smith and Palmer's spreadsheet/range guidelines as my guide.

Try Bru'nwater.  I get much more accurate results with it than others.

+ 100 Brun'water has a learning curve, it's worth it.

Just started messing around with Brun Water - haven't brewed a batch from it yet but I'm loving it so far. Appreciate the recommendations for it.

+1.  It's the best water software, bar none.
