Sam Adams Boston Lager water

(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 for lagers/pilsners is usually low in alkalinity, around 20 to 25 ppm.
Chloride:sulphate ratio around 1:1 or maybe slightly chloride biased (1.3:1)
I like high calcium levels, at least 150 - 160 ppm.
