    Plate Filter - Double Filtration
    by akom
    We need to filter down to 1.5 micron.

    Water Profile Input Needed
    by Smudgepot
    Hi all,

    New pro brewer here. We're opening up in a few months and I'm looking at our water report. We have hard water here in SoCal and I always used RO water for home brewing. With this water profile, do you think I can make it work or should we just bite the bullet and get an RO system?...
