Title: Water Chemistry and the "D" Word
Post by: punatic on December 09, 2010, 12:30:05 am
An interesting link in the Recent Headlines for 12/7/10 thread.

Water for Distilling: General Guidelines - http://alcbevtestingnews.blogspot.com (http://alcbevtestingnews.blogspot.com/)
Much has been written about water for beer brewing and for soft drinks but little is readily available for distilling. Here are a few pointers for quality of the water and treatments generally regarded for distilled spirits manufacture. There are three separate waters used in whisky (read also for other spirits here) production: mashing, cooling and reduction (or dilution-water).

Thank you.

I heard a little bit about the story but haven't had the time to read the whole article.  This won't do; looks like we need to convince everyone to give up soda.  Guess I'll find the article and read it first
