Water is an essential component for staying alive and one of the foundation elements in the brewing process. Written by How to Brew author John Palmer and professional brewer, Colin Kaminski, this second book in Brewers Publications' Brewing Elements Series, Water, will take the mystery out of using water in brewing beer. Beginning with an overview on sources, quality and geography, this book will lead brewers through water's role in the brewing process, including how to read water reports, troubleshooting, its flavor contributions and the treatment and chemistry of brewing water. A discussion of adjusting water to styles of beer, residual alkalinity, waste water treatment and research on malt color and pH are included
"If you don't get the water right, neither will you succeed with the beer. Water is a precious commodity, from its availability, through its quality, right to its departure down the drain. It demands respect and that is precisely what it receives in this book, which is packed with valuable information, calculations and lines for brewers large and small." -- Charles Bamforth, Professor of Malting & Brewing Sciences, University of California "In addition to extracting nuggets from the literature, the authors have drawn on the knowledge of experienced brewers ... and those who have developed software for doing some of the complex calculations and experiments. With such a breadth of sources, this book will either answer your brewing water questions or have you well on the way to those answers." -- From the Foreword by A J deLange, Water Researcher/Homebrewer "I have worked with water my entire engineering career and I know the intricacies of typical water treatment and utilisation. Brewing water needs are a unique aspect that have received little research or explanation in the past. This book assembles a wide variety of information focused on the specialised water needs in brewing and makes it accessible to all brewers. The treatment of brewing water can be as simple or complicated as a brewer wants to make it, but any brewer will find things in this book that can make their beer better." -- Martin Brungard, Water Resource Engineer/Homebrewer
