    Removing hops during the boil?

    You could either stop boiling and accept a slightly lower abv or boil til the end and accept a higher ibu level. Who cares, it's not like you must absolutely hit a flavour profile

    Confused.... mash pH and mineral content vs beer style

    Hardness is a reference to mineral content- calcium ions, magnesium ions and so on. It isn't a measure of alkalinity, though it can influence it
