Unfortunately, they don't list calcium and magnesium. It is good that they do list chloride, sodium and sulfate, which look promising as a start for the base water. Perhaps you could contact your water treatment facility and inquire about those minerals and include total alkalinity.

I've used a free water tool called "Bru'n Water" to help me figure out my water additions. it my help you as well. After reading the book Water: A Comprehensive Guide for Brewers (Brewing Elements) purchased using the link http://www.theelectricbrewery.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=24489 that helps support this site.
"Purchasing anything (not just the products we list) by visiting our sponsors using the links throughout our website helps support this site at no extra cost to you. Kal"


I now use reverse osmosis water and basically build my own water due to the variability of the city water I get from Chicago water supply.

Hope this helps, Castermmt
