Water profile
« on: September 09, 2011, 03:27:07 PM »
Your recent newsletter on water was excellent and helpful. While it is nice that you have various city profiles, it would be more useful to have "beer style" profiles. Example: If I load in my city`s profile then it would be great to be able choose "sweet stout" as target profile instead of choosing a different city profile.

I just used EZ Water Calc. To determine what mineral additions to add for a specific grain bill. Worked great, got my ph right on and the minerals where they were supposed to be.

So instead of matching some particular city's water, match what is correct for a particular grain bill.

You can do exactly that...but, you will have to define the water profiles you want for each style.
