Before you start your next homebrew it’s important to take a moment and examine the water that you are going to use for brewing. The average beer is more than 90% water, yet water is the most overlooked of the four key ingredients to beer. Water is every bit as important an ingredient, at all levels of brewing, as hops, barley or yeast. Think of it like this, if you’re trying to brew a Burton IPA, how can it truly be a Burton IPA unless the water has been adjusted to the same conditions as Burton Upon Trent? The same is true for a Czech Pils or a Robust Porter, the brew will benefit from a water that is adjusted to style. To the brewer who as has never modified his/her water modification can appear a bit complicated, but it doesn’t have to be complicated at all. In fact we’ve created this decorative and handy poster to show how you can modify the water to your desired profile with ease.
