At home water testing

(1/1)

Kaiser:
I recently started playing around with water test kits that are available for aquariums. In particular the GH&KH tests are useful for brewers who want to get a beter understanding of their brewing water w/o having to send a sample to an lab like Ward Labs.

I took some pictures, updated my water spreadsheet and wrote an article for my web site about this.

Take a look and let me know what you think : http://braukaiser.com/wiki/index.php?title=At_home_water_testing

Looks good.  I often thought about doing this.  This may be the motivation I needed.

My local pet stores don't carry the GH&KH only tests. They have other, more expensive, tests that include these tests. This means I had to order them online and pay $5 shipping for a $6 item.

I had a look but those test kits are rather expensive. On the other hand they allow you to test for almost anything that a professional lab tests.
