Prepare a balanced water profile using the Brewer's Friend online calculator.  For my high residual alkalinity well water I diluted 1:1 with DI and then added calcium sulfate and sodium chloride.


Mash @ 150 F for an hour, adjusting pH (if necessary) to 5.2 with a half tsp. lactic acid.

Mash out @ 168 F for 10 min.

Sprinkle-sparge with hot tap water.

Begin 60 min. full volume boil.

Add yeast nutrient with 10 min. left.

Chill wort to <65 F.

Transfer to LBK, make to volume, aerate, and pitch M54.

Ferment @ cool ale temp., 63-64 F or so.
