I'm interested in brewing an Alt beer, but I cannot find a water profile for Dusseldorf. While I realize it's not the end of the world to use my water I like to try to adjust according to the region of origin. I've found info on hardness but am also interested in calcium, magnesium, sodium, sulfate, chloride, and HCo3 levels.
Thanks,
Bill

i don't know if this will help, but two dusseldorf alt breweries with somewhat english-friendly brewers are "zum urige" and "schumacher" i don't know if they have websites, i might be able to find some contact info in my notes.

that's zum uerige, sorry. and i found a phone number for schumacher brewery- 0211 828902-0 good luck with that.

also there is zum schlussel, which can be reached at info@zumschluessel.de i'm not sure why there is an extra 'e' in the domain name, so maybe you can try it without as well.
