I have used brewfather exclusively but once you have your water report put in it makes water additions really easy which will balance your PH and let you hit certain profiles. What area do you live in?

I just downloaded Beersmith. just working on a water report from WA Water corp ( Perth) there is a water report on their website but it's not showing all the stats I am looking for I think but I really don't know what I am looking at anyway.

is there a default water profile in beersmith ?

I asked some in Perth they said to email watercorp, what have you got and what are you missing?

Thanks Gash

yep have allready got a water data sheet from water corp have set the water profile in beersmith and seems to be working good.
So i will be brewing this weekend with just my tap water for now and see if i get a good Starting gravity and PH.

But i see there is no profile in beersmith for using RO water from my resource this week on water. RO water has no or little minerals left in so you are left with just the PH of say 5.3 . Now when you add grain to that your PH will drop even more to say 4.8 that means i just need to add bicarb soda to raise the PH to 5.3 in turn raise the starting gravity back to 1050

Or have i got the completely wrong?

I found out recently that malt has some sort of natural buffer that happens in the malting process. Which basically (i think) means the malt will want to steer the pH into the conversion ball park in the mash. Ill leave it there as im getting out of my depth. Just something to note. Cheers
