To those who know water pH testing/analysis: Ok, so long story short, I'm having issues with my new local water authority in getting exactly what I need in order to compare local analysis to target style. To keep it simple, here's what I have: pH - 6.94 (I'll check that with my meter, but sounds about right after my last mash hitting 5.1 with the malts used.) Chloride - 16.1 mg/l Sulfate - 7.4 mg/l Sodium - 4.0 mg/l Alkalinity - 112 average ppm (but I'm not sure if that's "as Hardness CaCO3" or "Bicarbonate HCO3" - they won't reply to that) Hardness - 114 average ppm (same issue) In a separate email they mentioned Total Hardness as (Ca, Mg, Bicarbonate, and Carbonate combined) at 135 mg/l average. Apparently they don't test for those Additional Parameters here, so getting such from a local engineer isn't an option. From pulling out my brewing library and trying to pull Ca and Mg mathematically, it appears that's a no go. Question(s) here: Can I deduct Ca and Mg from what I have....and if not, any suggestions to getting these values? Lastly, is there a way to decipher whether or not the aforementioned Alkalinity is in terms of CaCO3 or HCO3? If it's easier to run a one on one discussion, please feel free to contact me! Thank you ahead of time for any insight my friends.
