Re: Salifert KH / Alkalinity test kit

Thanks again for the responses. I will have a go tomorrow with your suggestion.

Not done much research, but would using RO water help me with my situation. Starting with a blank slate and build my own water profile?

Re: Salifert KH / Alkalinity test kit

Thanks for replying. Have a look at my first post.

That was my plan to use the salifert kit to see how my water now measures against the water I got tested.

My solution did not change from the blue colour after adding the 1ml of KH liquid.

Re: Salifert KH / Alkalinity test kit

Thanks for the quick responses. I did shake the water being tested, inbetween the KH drops. Regarding my location, I'm a couple of miles outside of Portsmouth. My local water report from 2017 has alkalinity (CaCO3) of 297 - 352 mg/l. I brew on a grandfather and about a year ago I got my water tested...

Grainfather up scale

Hi all! I have a grain father and love the quality of the beer I'm brewing, but I would like to increase the capacity of the beer I make. I tried increasing the grain on the last brew I did to concentrate the wort, then diluting to the correct OG, but only got 33l of beer. I know you can get the 50l...

Grainfather increase capacity

I've done quite a few brews using my grain father and getting good consistency. There are a couple of beers that are getting drunk very quickly and I would like to increase the amount of beer I make.
