Water: the final frontier. These are the questions of brewers everywhere. Our continuing mission: to explain this strange new world, to define best practices and new considerations, to boldly brew better than you have ever brewed before. John Palmer, co-author of the soon to be released Water – A Comprehensive Guide for Brewers, will moderate a panel made up of co-author Colin Kaminski and technical editors Martin Brungard and A.J. deLange. The discussions will emphasize take-home techniques that homebrewers can use to tame the final frontier with the potential for substantial improvements to their beers. The panel will present a summary of best practices to start the program and then take questions from the audience for discussion.
