2 tsps of gypsum, 0.5 tsp of epsum, 0.5 tsp calcium chloride to 3.5 gallons of RO water for the mash and additional 1.5 gallons of RO water added to the end of the mash for mash out temp of 165ish. Additional 5.5-6 gallons of filtered tap water treated with 1/4 campden tab and 2 tsps of lactic acid for sparge water prep.

mash ph is right on about 5.4 at room temp and salts added later toward end of mash.

Notes

actually hit a pretty hot mash temp of about 156-157 after doughing in at around 165 F with the very little amount of 3.5 gallons; probably need to hit 162-163 for correct mash temp goal.
