Mash PH and Water Treatment
« on: December 21, 2019, 11:07:39 AM »
BS Forum Members,

I tried using vitamin C (ascorbic acid) to remove chloramines from my tap water.  It takes about 1,000 mg of vitamin C (ascorbic acid form) to remove chloramines from 40 gallons of water or 0.125 g for 5 gallons.  I have a 0.1 g resolution scale, so probably add too much.  Mash PH came out quite low.  I saw posts about adjusting the lactic acid addition by dividing by 1.65 and will try that, but I'm wondering if the software can account for vitamin c additions.

I do not currently have support for Vitamin C additions.
