Or maybe your water profile was already good w/o the stuff.

Resurrecting this old thread......

Has anyone ever brewed my Harp recipe above?  Or something similar to it?  I'm going to brew it next month and was wondering how close it came to the real thing.  I think it should be right, but now I'm also wondering if Harp actually uses a German yeast and German hops.  It is quite a German tasting lager, really.  So I was wondering if I should tweak my recipe in that regard.  What do you think?

I like everything you have above, however I would add 4oz of Acid Malt to bring down the PH instead of the 5.2 stuff.  Let us know how it turns out.
