Once I’d done campden tabs and used CRS on it the water here was ok for most styles but like you still seemed to work best with darker brews. As there isn’t really any easy way to strip out the other minerals (aside from dilution which needs RO anyway or buying bottled water) I think this is the only way to get properly soft water aside from moving house! Don’t think quality of brewing water is going to swing that with the missus somehow [rofl]


You could get a quick divorce. Plenty of fish in the sea.  [rofl]

Never had to get minerals out of water. Can you not CRS or acids or something?

I am a RO user as I have pretty similar hard water here in Surrey. I like the fact I can tailor the water to whatever I like versus the CRS way of not being able to properly control sulphate/chloride ratios properly.

CRS takes out carbonates, but it actually adds to the levels of sulphate and chloride so you can effectively reduce alkalinity for PH adjustments but only increase the levels of calcium, sulphate and chloride. To properly ‘soften’ the mineral content it has to be diluted, distilled or filtered in some way
