    Not to my knowledge.. rainwater is apparently around 5.5 pH in my area. I was adjusting on the assumption it was 7.5 pH (ie town water). Hence the low pH

    Grab some Great Northern, I hear all the real beer drinkers are switching to this from XXXX Gold

    I thought astringency was generally due to high pH leeching tannins during the mash or sparge, which is why we try to lower pH.

    High pH definitely does, maybe low pH resulted in something else, not astringency.. in any case though, tasted like ass

    I doubt it's low ph. I'd be looking for another cause, as you don't want it repeating in the next brew.

    Brewing for investigative purposes? Sounds like my dream as a 12yo.
