Hi all, I am looking to use tap water here in Dublin, Ireland to brew with. I have some questions about my water filter and water parameters here in Dublin which I have been told is soft water. I currently have a HMA filter set up with which I use to filter my tap water for drinking. It has 3 filters, a sediment filter down to 1 micron, a PCB-10-CM carbon filter which removes chlorine and chloramines and the 3rd filter which is a pentek carbon filter. I have used this water to supply my aquarium but thought I could use it with my tap water to use in an espresso machine.
So, after two weeks with my Expobar, I am now wondering what I ever did before her! And in my efforts to look after her I have swapped to bottled water after having carried out some water tests. These were the ppm results. My tap water 640 ppm Maxtra Filtered 384 ppm Font Vella bottled 192 ppm Aquarel Bottled 192 ppm Viladrau bottled 128 ppm So, needless to say, after these results, I obviously started using Valadrau since the first day– there is one other I want to try, Bezoya, rumoured to be as low as 26ppm, but I still have my doubts.
