Bru'n Water profile - Yellow Balanced

1.020 starter using Omega Yeast's Lacto Blend kept at 85°F in a water bath with an immersion circulator for 2 days.

Day 1 - Boil for 45 minutes with no hops and chill to 90°F then pre-acidify using lactic acid to 4.3 pH and pitch lacto starter. Sanitize temp control and put in wort with a heat wrap to keep temp at 85°F

Day 2 - In 12 hours, my pH went from 4.3 to 3.5. Verify pH with meter and then bring the wort back up to a boil to kill lacto and then add hops and spices at listed times.

Version 1: added salt in fermentor when packaging. Salt level was appropriate to my palate but will decrease from 10g to 8g to see how it changes. Will consider adding salt near flame out for convenience and to further reduce oxygen pickup.
