The beers all have a very faint aftertaste that I get across the board. This is no dig @ their beer, it is great, I just find that I get locked on that flavour. Do they have a different supply than the city?

They would be on Lake Major. I find Garrison, Propeller, Tata, and Nine Locks all have that going on. Not in every beer they make but there's the process indicators like you mentioned.

Hey, I'm trying to throw together a water profile in beer smith using the 2017 Analysis that Rob put on the original post. The value I can't figure out is "Bicarbonate (HCO3)", the original post has it listed (I'm in Dartmouth so under Lake Major) but the values shown don't line up with the new analysis so I believe they are based on the old one. With that in mind does anyone know what the 2017 bicarbonate levels for Lake Major are? Or how to calculate them using the Alkalinity or Hardness values?

“Find the total alkalinity on the report. Divide it by 50 and multiply the result by 61. Enter that as the bicarbonate in your spreadsheet. This will be close enough for government work in all cases except where pH of the source water is above 8 or below 6.” - AJ Delange
