Joe, my water profile is CA 51, MG 8, Na 18, cl 24, s04 76. With an alkalinity of 96 ppm (not sure what that is in HC03. Think maybe the ratio is 1:1.2) I didn't do anything except ramp up the sulphate to somewhere between 200 to 250.Hi @phildo79, I have the ingredients for the KBS clone siting in my shopping basket at Malt Miller and had a couple of questions for you if you don't mind...
1. Water profile, did you just go for a 'stout' the profile? The Brewfather one seems little light on sulphates and chloride:

I've upped it a little but tried to keep a similar ratio:

Did you go with a sulphate or chloride forward balance?
2. Secondary and conditioning...
Did you rack into a keg for the secondary and then bottle from there after a few months on the oak chips and bottle condition or did you just leave it in the keg on the oak, force carbonate, and drew a few bottles off under pressure when needed?
Thanks for the feedback and all the best for the wedding!Again, sorry for the delay but that’s all the feedback sent out now We’re getting married in a few days time and needless to say with all the madness leading up to it I’ve barely had the chance to type it all up.
The feedback is very honest and is hopefully useful! Some lovely beers sent in, thank you all.
