Water profile for a Pale ale

(That's water to the rest of us!) Beer is about 95% water, so if you want to discuss water treatment, filtering etc this is the place to do it!

Water profile for a Pale ale

Postby Bigbud78 » Mon Mar 20, 2017 3:02 pm

Hi

I got a water report from wallybrew so Im not looking at what to target for a Mosaic Pale ale, I've not really learned too much RE water yet but I found a profile online that a few people have said is a good base for hoppy ipa's / pales ?

Can anyone comment or suggest something to aim for please ?

Many Thanks
Jim

Looks good as is but if you up your calcium to closer to 200 you'd be nigh on perfect with that. Ignore the pH value by the way, it's the mash pH that counts.
