Really good beer. The gypsum I added, like 5 grams made a difference I think. This beer was super drinkable and tasty. This is a beer you just keep drinking because it is so fucking smooth and just enough flavorful and it calls you back after every sip. Would do more burtonizing of the water if I was to get more into the chemistry. Hard water seemed to be more prefered for this style.
