how do you de-oxygenate the water?

 

and what is your source of magnesium?  just curious since I've never thought about adding it.

Boil it for 5 minutes or so cool to desired strike temp and carefully underlet to mlt. Alternatively you can use a yeast and sugar mixture and let that do its thing for about 2 hours then underlet to mlt.

Exactly.   If I'm doing a 10 gallon batch, I do the yeast method.   For a 5, I just boil and chill.   Both work well, but I get more acidification from the yeast method, so I have to account for that.   

 

I use plain old epsom salts for the Magnesium.  Most folks don't worry about Mg.   I add a little for yeast health, but mostly for this beer, I wanted a little more sulfate for the hops, but didn't want to add more Calcium.

I see you've made a return to 2206. Any special reason or just rotating lager yeasts?

Seems like a lot of people on the low-oxygen site like 2206.  I haven't used it in years.
