I'm having trouble making sense of my water report. I've read about all kinds of things that can affect the taste, and some of them I can find on my report (and those I can find seem to be within the desirable range). But I thought it would be helpful for someone more experienced to take a look.
So, any comments you have are appreciated!
I'll also mention two things:
1) my tap water tastes OK, no complaints, but it's noticeably better when I use a Brita filter. I can't put my finger on what's different (metallic? I don't know), only that it's definitely tastier filtered.
2) my mash pH is 5.2, which seems to be spot on.
Below are some items from the report that I've read about as relevant (or at least THINK I've read are relevant), but I may be leaving things out (I have to manually copy, paste, and fix each line individually, and the report is quite long, so I can't just include the whole thing...though I could email the full PDF if anyone is inclined to read it!).
