I just mixed up my next gallon of water at .2g Potassium bicarb and .2g of Epsom salt. I'll see how it goes.

Thanks to you introducing me to Marco here's a link to what I feel is an excellent basic talk on the subject:

I feel like I might be getting to understand the factors at work here at least on a basic level.

Coming back to this to say I've now spent a few bags at a mix of 1 gallon of BWT filtered water to 0.2g of Potassium Bicarb and 0.2g of Epsom salts. This seems to be a nice trade off. With 0.5g of Epsom slats I almost found that I was ending up bitter with very little effort. With no Epsom salt there were quite a few shots leaning sour/tart. With the 0.2g/0.2g mix I'm getting more even flavors on a much higher percentage of my shots.

I'll continue to play with it but I want to thank Pat once again for demystifying some of this for me and allowing me to use my filtered tap water with confidence.
