Which Water Calculator?

Hi,

Now I have my water profile to work with (thanks to Wallybrew) I have plugged the numbers in two popular web based calculators and the paid version of Brun Water calculators .

Though, I appreciate that I have not spent a lot of time reading the do and don't for each calculator system, but what was clear each calculator provided differing quantities of additives, even though they recommended the same such as Gypsum and Epson Salts in my case.

Therefore, I would welcome your view on which Homebrew Water Calculator do you use and the one would recommend as the most reliable?

Thanks.

I use one someone gave me that isn't available to the public. Some people recommend brewersfriend too. I never really got on with Brunwater. I'm sure it works, just over complicated tbh

+1 for bru'n water. Read the water page fully at least once. It all makes sense very quickly. Don't be put off by all the numbers.

If you do use Brunwater please ignore all the silly warnings it gives you about too much sulphate or chloride and especially calcium. There is no need to be afraid of high levels of minerals it does not damage beer or make it taste nasty. We in the UK have been brewing with high levels of minerals in our water for years. We are used to having flavour in our beer ;)

Thanks for your comments, and I do like Bruwater and it also gives you a lot of useful options.

PS. Aleman: When will your recommend water calculator be available to the public?
