In the last couple of weeks there have been a few postings for help about brewing salts and how to adjust pH. My questions among them. I've been reading carefully all the resources and answers given, and I put together a graphic that will definitely help me in the future.

Adjusting pH

Nice job, I can use this as I can't even remember my name in the middle of brewing. How about adding the approximate amounts to add of each to raise/lower .1 points?

Nice graphic, Milan.

Mike, w/o knowing your water's mineral content, it'd be very hard if not impossible to know how much of the various salts to add to change pH .1 point. What works in my brewery with my water may not be appropriate for you.

Also, the grain bill can affect pH - dark grains are acidic.

So the best bet is to use decent pH strips like the colorpHast brand, or a good pH meter, and keep notes of the effects you see in your particluar situation

Shows how much I know about water chemistry... nothing!
