I would like some feed back on the relative merits of the different types of water treatments being used in the brewery to treat brewing liquor. I would really like to hear how different people are dealing with different water quality issues. I would also appreciate a list suppliers of water treatment/filtration equipment that provide good equipment. thanks for any help.
what do you mean by "water treatment"? Pre-brewing?
Boiler? Water salts, etc?
Salts and acids can be bought from any reasonable source, ie crosby and baker, fisher scientific, steinbart, etc.
For water filtrtration prior to brewing i recco particle and carbon filtration.
r/o is always an option (and isn't as expensive as you think) but will require mineral salt additions.
We are installing resin bed filtration units ($$$$$) but awsome in the long run.
also you can buy units and service them yourself...carbon is cheap and easy to work with after the units are instsalled.
I am interested in the pre treatment of brewing liqour. I am planning on using both a sediment and activated carbon filters to deal with the chlorine and small sediment. Do you know of a good supplier of activated carbon filters or reasonable RO systems?
