Title: Please post US water profiles
Post by: MaltLicker on February 23, 2010, 08:12:32 PM
I'm doing a club education session on water chemistry and thought it might be interesting to show how different water profiles can be in the US.  If you've had your water tested or use the water dept's numbers, please share them here or send me a message with these items if you can.  Thanks a bunch.  

The side benefit is people may see a locale near them and learn how to use the info themselves.  Or check out the water tool in BeerSmith for the first time, etc.
