They brew with DO water. You can speculate where they don't have it. The brewery in NC is state of the art GEA Huppmann, the bottling line is Krones.

I will ask some questions when I am in NC next month.

Jeff, just to be sure I understand, are you saying they dissolve oxygen onto their water?

I would guess it means de-oxygenated water.

Yeah, I'd be curious if they preboil at that scale or use some other means to deoxygenate.

Thanks Jon, haven't quite reached 3 weeks(17 days including weekends) so I am not concerned yet and have not brewed since ordering so I will give it another couple days before emailing them. Good to know on just sealing up in the cupboard. Thanks Denny. How long did your order take to arrive that you just received?

Well, it's kinda different...I got them directly from my contact at the company.
Thanks Denny,  I guess I knew that, just wasn't thinking about that nice hookup you have

Since ive gone lodo I seem to get more of that fresh grain flavor and aroma (IT) in my light lagers compared to my amber and dark lagers. Maybe it has something to do with more Pils malt vs darker Munich's and specialty malts? My darker beers are better too but nothing like the smack you in the face flavor and especially the aroma I get from my Helles. I had a old beer drinking buddy over this last weekend, we were drinking my helles and he said " this smells so good I could sit here with my nose in this mug all night".

De-oxiginated water. They gave column strippers that do that. Just like the German breweries.

Column strippers. They have very low mineral content water in Mills River, but a big water treatment room. The equipment was similar to what I saw in Germany.

Thanks, Jeff. I didn't see preboiling as feasible at that stage.

Or the amount they need.

DO water is used everywhere in a big brewery. Boilers, to push beer long distances, for the mash, and in the packaging lines.

So, who's the first to incorporate one of these into their brewery?

Hadn't seen those. I'll bet somebody here jumps on one, for the outlet side of their RO system.


Edit - If you're committed to low O2 water, it would beat the hell out of preboiling.

The cheap ones have tens of milliliters per minute flow rates. At 20 ml/minute it would take 3 hours to process 1 gallon. You would need to think ahead to make your water.

Would it need to be stored in a vacuum evacuated container? Normal air will dissolve over the amount of time it takes to pull 10 gallons.
