Just saying that 603 meters is 1978 ft. Jim might hit Lava in the PNW near the Ring of Fire.


No help with brewing water, but he'd never need to buy propane again.

It sure is. But 1978ft would put me back into bedrock

My opinion...a neutral base (RO or distilled) is a great way to build exactly what you want. Sometimes it takes some tinkering and few batches, but you can build a water profile for the beer style and end up in a great place....resulting in a beer you are proud off and represents the style.

Water is something I want to have my head wrapped at least halfway around before I start brewing. Now I just need to figure out how to make bru'n water work on my computer.

Not to divert the subject, but has anyone donated to/ gotten the updated version of brunwater? How different is it from the base Excel sheet? And most importantly, is it worth it?

The supporter's version allows you to save the data for all your recipes, and it calculates your additions in hundredths of a gram as opposed to tenths. It's "worth it" in the sense that its creator put and still puts a lot of work into something we use every time we brew to make the best beer that we can.

I donated and got the supporters version, but for some strange reason Excel won't let me open it, says it's protected with a password,  which per Martin is not true. But I am perfectly happy with the free version, and I just save copies for my recipes (Android version of Excel requires you to make a copy in order to edit anyway.)

Frankenbrew makes the REAL point: I don't need the features of the supporters version.   I don't care that it's a dead file in my cloud storage.  I really just wanted to make a donation as some return for the great benefit I get from the "free" version.

Sorry guys,  definitely didn't mean it like that.  Completely understand that it's a privledge to have that kind of info around at all. I just really didn't know the advantages of the donor version.
