    Have overshot it adding calcium chloride,BF table reckons am at high level with 242mg/l Calcium & 281mg/l Chloride.
    Am i ruined or should just dilute down by Litre or 2 when bottling to play safe?

    Was going darker than my usual pales& trying to up smoothness/mouthfeel.

    too much calcium chloride and not enough gypsum to balance it out will make as I call it a soup beer, bland thick and a loss of flavor so be careful
