The definitive brewing guide for water from the guy who taught you How To Brew. Water chemistry is a complex and daunting topic- often the most difficult and least understood element of brewing even though it accounts for roughly 95% of your beer. Understanding your water is the final piece of the brewing puzzle. The ultimate challenge.
Water, the third book in the Brewers Publications’ Brewing Elements series, tackles the topics of water chemistry and treatment from a brewer's perspective - everything from how to read a water report to residual alkalinity, malt acidity, and mash pH. This book will help to demystify the role of water in the brewing process and will give you the information you need, as a brewer, to manipulate your water so that you can brew the best beer possible.
