I don't believe there is any misinformation on  Kai's website regarding this.

http://braukaiser.com/wiki/index.php?title=At_home_water_testing

The number comes from fitting observed data which is obviously something anyone modeling mash pH in a spreadsheet is comfortable with.

You are aware that the generalization is only good for Kai's water source, right? What about everyone else's water source? Knowing the data and its applicability is imperative in assessing empirical data.

I can't wait to get my RO system installed and then re-dialing my system in!  Using Brunwater, of course!  I thought my lagers were ok, but I can't wait to see how they turn out with an RO base with Brunwater adjustments!

I take this very seriously. I surf the forum looking for posts where someone has really screwed it up bad. If I don't find any then I post something.

I actually read what Kai wrote before commenting on it so I know that the generalization is based on several water sources among which several are not Kai's so I would disagree with that statement.
