Brewing Discussion / Re: Water profile - acid addition?
« Last post by Oginme on Yesterday at 09:29:14 AM »
The acid addition recommendation will be on your mash tab.  In order to get the needed acid amount, you need to make sure your target mash pH is correct and then input the estimated mash pH in the measured mash pH field.  Select the acid you have on hand and the program will give you an estimate of how much you need to reach the target.

I will warn you that the current model used for mash pH does have a known issue.  I have outlined it in the thread here:  http://www.beersmith.com/forum/index.php/topic,20449.0.html

Thank you
I was assuming that the software  may have suggested an acid addition or crs solution or am I expecting too much?

Something like this?

Ca 50 ppm
Mg 2 ppm
Na 0 ppm
SO4- 44.1 ppm
Cl-  44.1 ppm
CO3- 0 ppm

If this is the case, then you have:

Calcium 142             (+92 ppm)
Magnesium 9.6         (+7 ppm)
Sodium 16.2             (+16 ppm)
Sulfate 120               (+76 ppm)
Chloride 71.5            (+33 ppm)
Bicarbonate 152        (+152 ppm)

There are no ions which you are deficient, so the program has no room to add any salts to come close to the profile you selected.  This is why the program does not give you any recommendations for water agents.

Trying to match lager profile. My thinking is that I have too many minerals meaning that some need to be reduced.

Looks fine.  And what profile are you trying to match?

Hi Oginme and thank you for your response.
Yes I have done everything that you have mentioned.
My local tap water is as follows;
Calcium 142
Magnesium 9.6
Sodium 16.2
Sulfate 120
Chloride 71.5
Bicarbonate 152
Look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks

Is there a way to export only the ingredients from the recipe report ?

You can get a rough estimate of your Bicarbonate level by taking your alkalinity and ratioing it based upon the molecular weights of Calcium carbonate and Bicarbonate.  This would give you:

90 ppm alkalinity * 122 g/mol CaCo3/100 g/mol HCO3- = 110 ppm HCO3-

The actual conversion is pretty intense and depends upon the pH of the water, but this is close enough within a few ppm to get you what you want.

Brewing Discussion / Barbonate?
« Last post by Russell on March 27, 2020, 10:45:08 AM »
  BrewSmith water report asks for Bicarbonate, but my water report doesn't show that. How do I find out what my Bicarbonate is?
   Water is     Calcium,    Sodium,  Sulfate,  Chloride,  Alcalinity (CaC03),  Conductivity,  Hardness (CaC03)     PH
     PPM               41               43         71           250         90                         478               132                   8.4

  Most Water calculators I see only want Alkalinity.
