I sent in a sample to Ward labs so I could make adjustments on my next BIAB assignment.
I plugged in all the information into Brunwater and the only way to get everything into line was to dilute my water with 80% distilled water. So if I do a 3 gallon batch and I start with 5 gallons, 4 of them would be distilled.
Here is the report:
Tot Alk 393
So with the distilled water added it looks like I’ll just need to add a little Gypsum, Chalk and Lactic Acid…
What do some of the water experts think?
