So I’m making a second attempt at a Vienna Lager and want to make mash water adjustments to reflect Vienna’s water.

As you can see Bru 'n Water & Beersmith Vienna water profiles differ quite a bit. Beersmith has me adding a hefty dose of CaCl when Bru 'n Water does not. This has got me worried enough that I’m thinking of not making ANY adjustments. Any thoughts?
