    Could someone have a look at this water profile and tell me if this is right?
    The brewer (WeldWerks) says "Use calcium chloride and calcium sulfate additions to adjust water profile to about 175–200 ppm chloride, 75–100 ppm sulfate, and 125–150 ppm calcium."

    .....what do you think...OMB, Tben, Nosy Bob, Thunder?

    If you reversed the CaCl and CaSO4 it'd look a lot like what I use for my West Coast IPAs. What style is this profile for?

    Looks like a hazy water profile to me Screenshot_20200313-113603_Samsung Internet.jpg
    That's a big chloride addition.
    Only thing I can help with is lowering you ph down from 5.6 with some acid.
    Good luck good to see you back on the forums ;)

    water profiles are specific to each recipe, the amount of salts or calcium change for each type of beer your brewing

    It is pretty normal to use a lot of CaCl for NEIPAs, but I am surprised the CaSO4 is that high from what I've read.. I almost suggested, in jest, that this profile might be similar to what they use in their IPAs at Back Country:) Did you ask your brewer friend there what he thought of it?

    My last brew I had 2 hop additions and screwed up one of them. :D
    I can't even imagine trying to follow that schedule!!
    Good luck!

    You don't want a malty hoppy beer, you can't really copy big brewing at the home brew scale

    Ya Oz to malty, this was scaled down by the brewer himself. Im going to use my Mango Milkshake Neipa water profile with a gram or two extra CaCl.
