    Hi, Got my report from WARD and tried to understand the process. ie;
    My chemistry compared to Dublin (dry stout) gives differences BUT how to get the salt additions to alter my water. Does the calc compare and advise the weights of corrections?

    Nope. You enter salts and the calculator shows you their effect on mash chemistry. Note this is not the effect on flavor!

    Hi Not looking for effect on flavor. Looking for the math to compare my water to another geo area, ie Dublin, and weights af additions

    It works by trial and error, the calculator won't convert the ppm delta into grams of salt.

    Almost all Breweries treat their source water, so treating your water to match the profile of a city or other area is usually an exercise in futility.
