Able to use yer well water straight out of the spigot? Use more of the Cations to offset the RA? Sneezles61
Probably could just add some gypsum. When i said cider territory above i meant cider dryness not flavor
Ok changed the water profile to Dortmund
When I looked it said you were adding 6g of gypsum. Is that accurate? Seems like quite a bit. I think changing your water profile to more of a Dortmund style water profile will help you too.
The Dortmund profile is 300mg SO4 my water only has 5mg i think the calculation with 9.5g gets me to 205 the cacl addition gets me 66 Cl it keeps me 3:1 but less than the Dortmund calls for
Its treating 7galons of water
Got it! Perhaps add a little gypsum to a glass of your current pils and see if it makes the hops pop a bit more.
Well i don't have a pilsener on tap but i added a bit .15 g to a cream ale which isn't super hoppy but actually liked it. I may be moving to a different profile for this one as well. This was about 1:1
That was fun to read! Educators problem solving and listen to each other. Helping each other out to make a good product! Yes it may be beer, but it is BEER.
Ok finally getting to brew this today. Here is the profile
Double decoction 75 minute boil also did a P rest
Yer bicarbonate being low is good... and the other minerals are close enough... A dabble decoction should keep you busy!I'll look forward to yer tasting notes.. I've got a couple to keg so I can tinker with this style... now that its cool out..Sneezles61
