    Water Treatment

    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.

    cheers,
    Scott

    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.

    Filters:
    Culligan
    us filter

    also you can buy units and service them yourself...carbon is cheap and easy to work with after the units are instsalled.

    Good luck

    Larry,

    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?


    thanks
    Scott
