Re: Water analysis by Wallybrew/Pheonix analytical

@LeeH - your alkalinity looks pretty high to me; you're going to need some kind of treatment to get it down.

Re: Hi There!

Hi Brewser and welcome to the forum! :)

I have a feeling that S30 safety valves are set somewhere in the region of 10psi so you might have a problem there. However, 6 or 7 psi is quite high enough for serving imo.

Re: Top Thread Revival

Thanks Orlando! That link is fixed now, and I reckon that's the latest version, as it's got the same filename as the original - PBW_UKv3.xls.

To save people having to search for the thread to find the link, I've added it to the 'Calculators' page on JBK - https://www.jimsbeerkit.co.uk/extras.htm .

Re: Top Thread Revival

I have version 3 if it is the latest, can't see why not and would do the job. Let me know if you have no joy. That would do for a start. If I get a newer one from John I'll replace it. Can you email it to me please? Sure, but your contact is through the Forum only and that won't let me do that. Can...

Re: Top Thread Revival

Apologies. I didn't check the thread. I just tried uploading the .xls file but it was returned as an invalid file extension. :shock: Hopefully Jim sees this and can advise. Looks like John had that file on his own server, and it's no longer there. I don't have the file, so I can't fix the link; how...

Re: Water analysis by Wallybrew/Pheonix analytical

I think I should dip my toe in the water so to speak and get an analysis done, sounds reasonable I guess my next questions would be how do you deal with the report, where do you go for best info to treat it .......... Aleman wrote a very good and much more accessible guide, which I can't now find f...
