    As of today I am not seeing the grist info and associated PH being picked up by the water calculator from a linked recipe.

    Mash chemistry and brewing water.

    But it appears it is only happening on one of my recipes. I'm thinking of deleting the water chemistry on that recipe and starting over.

    OMB - Creating a new water chemistry file for that recipe worked. Sorry for not trying that first.

    Been trying to match my fairly moderate base water profile to a Kentucky profile. I got close enough; however, it took lots of chalk and epsom and ended up with a mash ph of 5.88. Not the best, but it should work.

    I wouldn't add chalk, it doesn't dissolve very well and raises the ph, try Epsom salts

    Thanks. I was wondering about that. I have just over 1 tsp of each on 9 gal of total water.

    this is what Im adding to my imperial ipa, a couple of teaspoons is fine just back it up with some calcium, Calcium chloride will smooth out the flavor and Gypsum will make it harsh
    4 tsp Gypsum
    5 g Calcium chloride
    6 g Epsom salt
