Re: Ro or tap

Re: Ro or tap

Oh dear. It appears to have got complicated again just when I'd worked out how to use the GW calculator! If I use the recommendation from dry pale ale will I be in the right ball park?

Re: Ro or tap

Ah. I've got crs but not ams. I'll give them a call tomorrow! Tomorrow I'll post my reviewed recipe if you'd be able to take a look that'd be great and confirm water additions. I'm working the GW calcs also but want to cross ref with what you get to make sure I'm using it properly. Brewing Friday 🀞....

Re: Ro or tap

Hi both. Thanks for your help. If I'm honest I'm maybe out if my depth against your knowledge but I'm doggy paddling and trying to stay float! 😁 🀞 Guy. I'm going with your recommendations.

Re: Ro or tap

Again, I didn't realise when I decided on that recipe all the things I might/should consider. I am grateful for all the advice and will use it for sure!
