Just sent a bottle of tap to Ward Laboratories in Kearney, Nebraska. The water report is as follows:
|Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) Est ppm||170|
|Electrical Conductivity, mmho/cm||0.28|
|Cations/Anions, me/L||3.0 / 2.7|
|Total Hardness, CaCO3||129|
|Nitrate, NO3-N||0.3 (Safe)|
|Carbonate, CO3||< 1|
|Total Alkalinity, CaCO3||80|
|Total Iron, Fe||< 0.01|
I’ve heard that the profile for Cleveland water differs in winter from summer. So, I may have to send off for another report later this year.
My next brew is going to be an Oktoberfest/Marzen. So, I will see what it takes to create a water profile that aligns with one from German regions based on this report. Found a pretty interesting article on Homebrew Water Treatment at The Mad Fermentationist.
Great site for Water Chemistry.
