G'day brewers. I've recently bought a Brewzilla 65L. First up, I'll be just doing single batches until I get my head around it all. I've brewed cans for years, just fairly basic stuff but not bad! Reading a lot of this is a lot to take in. I got a water profile analysis sent to me and it's all over the place, mainly Mg and Ca. So I'm going to ignore the 10,000mg/L for each and just get my pH right. Beersmith is confusing me. It doesn't have the Brewzilla in the equip profile and even if it did, I'm not doing full batches.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers
KT
I've attached a copy of the water analysis they sent.

Just a side note Gash, the water I will be using will be filtered through a carbon filter to get rid of the Chlorine.

Ok I've had a look, for the last hour so ... trying play with your water.. and the pH is going to need be lowered, how much depends on how much mash water youre using and what grains.
I havent seen any purpose built single batch profiles, I've been working on one myself but its not quite there yet. For the time being just going have to lower the batch size in the profile. I can't help with volumes etc without knowing a recipe at least.
Your is challenging too, but we can probably get around that.
to give you a rough idea though I put in your water profile and 5.5kg of base malt and said 27L for mash. The pH without adjustments is 5.73. Now it would probably work fine like that, but yeah when people play with pH they usually want to get it down to 5.4 or something. I entered 300g of acidulated malt and it got it down to 5.48.

Im guessing you have a ph meter? It would be good to test it so you get real idea of where its at.

Thats just ph like you asked, without adjusting water. Where are you located?
You really just gotta dive in and give it a shot. I've run out of time this arvo, but will look again at it later. Cheers!

Cheers mate, I appreciate your input. I live in Moama, just moved. Yes, I have a pH meter, a beverage doctor. I'm going to follow other recipes, for now, I prefer hoppy aroma Pale Ales and I'll work on those. How do I find your recipes on beersmith?
