I have noticed that some people use AO water to brew with.
What is AO water???
you sure its not RO water? RO is pure water you have to treat with salts and acids to get a true mixture for the right beer, AO is alkaline water or store bought water
took a while to find the site I found it on.
it was on Brewtoad.com the name of the beer is Oktoberfest II.
Maybe the guy that posted it was thinking of R0 water, I don't know.
I didn't use this recipe.
here is the site.
yes he "Treated 7.5 gallons of RO water with 8 grams CaCO3, 1 gram CaSO4, and 1 gram NaCl", that is normal for building your own water
crap .. sorry.. maybe it is time to get new glasses.
Russ, you likely won't need the treatment here. I can't remember if you're using Aurora water or are on a well. If you're using Aurora water, for that color of beer, you'll need some calcium - our water is always deficient in it. But not much else. Maybe 6 grams of calcium chloride.
