So you have been following the paper with your methods, but using your own recipes?

I haven't done the paper to a T yet, but pretty close. Adjustments were made for my equipment and the ingredients i have on hand. Don't get me wrong I am getting good results (mostly on the lager side).

I think it's all a combo of lodo drier malt flavors, extra sulfate from SMB and possibly beers that are a bit green yet. A couple tasted much more balanced tonight.

I do use ro, but my home system runs at about 75% approximately. (According to my water software)

Are you eliminating other sources of sulfate from your water composition given the SMB dose?

I cut out sulfate in my recipes that used a pinch and reduced it in recipes that need more bite. But it seems that Belgian and British need even less.

Guess this would explain why when a big brewery gives a recipe out for an ipa and it has 10% crystal, but at the home level 10% would be crazy. Till now
