    Residual alkalinity is important to brewing, particularly to hit the target mash pH. It's possible to find it in the "more" section of the recipe but due to its importance, would it be possible to put it in the header?

    We do have the mash pH in the header. Is RA that significant if the pH is where it should be, where it should be moved (sort of a rhetorical question here, thinking out loud)?

    After further consideration, I wouldn't put it there, since it's not possible to measure RA directly. It's fine where it is.
