From the calculator. This is for my filter tap in the kitchen, anglia water report 2018
For Lidl Clarity Springs
I don't think your total volume of water should be lower than your mash volume. It's hard to see the numbers but I think your total should be 26l?
whops Lidl Clarity Springs for pale ale Anglia water
My filter tap anglia water
Does this make sense, it is alright to add 37.8 grams crs to 27 litres of water? that would reduce Alkalinity of 281 to 20? for a pale ale
I've just started learning about this, but I think you'll have to consider the sulphate/chloride added by the CRS as well?
I've also got high alkalinity water in Hampshire and came to the conclusion the totals ended up rather high if I try to bring my alkalinity (265 iirc) down to pale ale levels with only CRS, don't have the numbers to hand though.
Y query revolves around after crs addition then ph vlaue.
Per Argentum"If I calculated it correctly, a reduction of 220 ppm alkalinity in 27 liters of water via the use of CRS/AMS should add ~73 ppm of chloride and ~100 ppm of sulfate to your water (give or take a few ppm)."
Yes this look right however that is a lot of CRS to add, probably more than I'd want to add personally. You might be better blending your water with bottled water and adjusting from there. If you blended half and half with Tesco Ashbeck for example it would reduce the alkalinity to around 150- 160 ppm which is more manageable. For your other question, yeah I wouldn't be afraid to push the calcium a bit higher if you wanted to add some gypsum, but again if you blended with Ashbeck then it would also reduce the calcium to about 70 ppm.
Great advice. Thank you. I suppose also just use ashbeck and forget the tap.
Well you could do that, but probably not necessary. Your water would be perfectly manageable for most styles if blended 50:50.
Ok. So be it. Thanks mate. Better than boiling tap water.
Planning a strong pilsner soon should I just leave everything as is?
Ca=9 mg=2 cl=10.6 so4=38.6 Na=13.5
I've refined CRS for 27 Liters and a reduction of 220 ppm alkalinity. I now see this as:
1) Requires 32 mL of CRS
2) Adds 76 ppm Cl-
3) Adds 106 ppm SO4--
It would be wise to verify my numbers, as we don't have access to CRS in the States.
How strong is strong? I would probably bump up the calcium to around 60 ppm with calcium chloride.
My numbers are about the same:
31 ml CRS
According to Murphys (who make CRS), an addition of 0.1 ml/l adds 6.4 ppm chloride and 8.6 ppm sulphate.
7 or 8% tis but a session beer for @dad_of_jon
I have moved several recent posts to a new thread titled Water Treatment so Steve's thread stays on topic.
Just done some analysis with delivery test kits. Figures a ppm
100% ashbeck water from Tesco
Alkalinity 16.289 calcium 25
50 % ashbeck 50% my filter tap
Alkalinity 159.31 calcium 100.
Anglian water going through filter tap as I live in Braintree. Unfilterd alkalinity is mot like 283
