For those of you who like to adjust your brewing water, here is a correct water profile for Milwaukee tap water. (2005)
This is contrary to some of the published reports including the one found in Beersmith water profiles.
These list the Ca as 96ppm and the Mg as 47ppm.
The confusion seems to arise from the published Milwaukee Water Works report,listing both these minerals as "Calcium hardness as CaCO3 and Mg hardness as CaCO3"
A closer examination of the complete report shows the actual ion content to be 35ppm and 11ppm respectively.
I question if these errors show up in other published water profile reports.

Hmmmm....these numbers really don't explain why Leinenkugel Berry Weiss tastes so terrible.
I'm starting to suspect its the fruit, not the water.

Hmmm. Milwaukee and LaCrosse are only about 200 miles apart. I didn't realize the water utilities in Wisconsin get all their water from the same source.

"Leinenkugel" is German for urinary tract infection.
Leinenkugel Berry Weiss is German for urinary tract infection with seeds, which is claimed to be even more painful.

Those figures are very typical for Great Lakes water and could certainly be used for anyone whose water comes from Lake Michigan (Chicago, Northwest Indiana, the Michigan and Wisconsin shores). My own water is from Lake Ontario and quite a distance away, but it's similar.
