It does but is incomplete. Also, you'll need to convert EC to ppm- just for familiarity's sake.

All you have there are the cations.  You need the anions too, most particularly the bicarbonate (alkalinity).

What is shown suggests that it should be a decent brewing water as long as it tastes good.

Thanks for the input. My beer does taste pretty good with that water. It was when I went to enter the info into brunwater that I realized that I may not have sufficient information from the report.
