    I'm brewing a Festival Pilgrim's choice kit and for the sake of curiosity, my tap water isn't that great, I'm going to use Lidl Springwater, not the bargain basement variety, rather the 30p per 2 litre kind. I've done a bit of reading with regards to reducing the PH level on water, but this seams to relate to full or partial mash brews. The PH value of the water as per the label info is 7.8. The simple question is, should I look toward altering this using an appropriate Acid for my kit brew?

    There is no need to adjust the water chemistry for kits, extract brews and arguably small volume mini mashes. I also suggest you save your money and buy the cheapest bottled water you can find, it will make little difference to how your kit beer turns out.
