Adapted from the Water Chemistry Calculator by Glenn Tinseth, publisher of The Hop Page.

This water chemistry calculator calculates the ppm of all the important brewing ions based on the water volume and the mass of the salts you add. Enter a number for each salt you want to add (under the Mass Added column) choose the units that you want to use and click Calculate.
