    So how long until you plant your own hop vines in the back yard?

    As for the water, we're in the limestone belt of south central Indiana, where the water runs through karst topography. It's hard all right.

    Well then you should be able to get a more authentic taste to your Pale Ale with water straight from the tap. You could even do a little experiment. Make one batch of your Pale Ale recipe with your water and save a few bottles (if you're bottling). Then make the next batch with your Pale Ale recipe, but this time using bottled water and Burton Water Salts and compare the two. The Burton Water Salts would help the beer come out closer to Bass, the standard for English Pale Ales (depending on the recipe of course). The end result is that if you can taste the difference, it will help you identify the "local" character that your water imparts to your beer.
    Wear gaudy colors, or avoid display. Lay a million eggs or give birth to one. The fittest shall survive, yet the unfit may live. Be like your ancestors or be different. We must repeat!
