what water amount do I adjust to?

Brewing water for Bitters

Hi Guys

Im getting ready to brew an english best bitter and im wondering about the water. I want to mimick Burton on trent water, but increasing sulfate to 800 seems a bit much :)

Can I stop at 400-500 sulfate and still achieve a great Bitter?

you got it right :)

i have a heat approved fermenting vessel that can hold all the mash liquor, so both kettle runs will have same gravity. just needed to hear that storage didnt hurt flavor profile.

thanks for the quick reply
