Hi Everyone,

After looking at the replies, I decided to make the trip up town and get some bottles water. Now I did do some other shopping so that was not to bad.

Already have the company out to look at my RO system also.....


General Homebrew Discussion / Boiling water to condition

Hi Everyone,

Some time ago, I seem to remember a article in which Brewer's had boiled their water prior to using. If possible can someone point that article or discussion out to me.

I ask as I live in a rural setting and have well water that is hard and has a bit more iron in it than normal. My RO System is is down and needs replacement and I feel that I have to brew a batch of Beer today and to tired (lazy) to run the 30 miles or so to a town to get some bottled water.

Any thoughts on this as I am looking to make a Summer Wheat beer (Extract kit form AiH).

Thanks in advance.

Hi Everyone, Being new I have been using RO water to do my brewing. On advise from a fellow brewer I started to add 1 gallon of my well water to my 5 gallon extract brewing. People who have tasted have reported better tasting beer so was a good step.

My question though, were do I get a water analysis done. Tried looking at the local water reports via the county and my rural area does not have one available.

Thanks all,

Either my google skills have gone to hell, or they do not have a website. Any web addresses in there?

Looking at that picture, I recognized that as a book I had seen at Lowe's. So here is the link from Amazon.
