Hard water

Post #1 made 8 years ago
hello, a complete newbie here..... Got most of my equip around for a MINIbiab batch. However our well water is very hard, leaves lots of deposits in a pot when I boil it. Should I plan on using bottled water of some type? Note, our water does taste very good if that helps at all. Andy

If you can get a water report for the Magnesium/Calcium/Sulfate/Chloride levels you can dilute your Good water with Rain or RO water to have perfect Brewing Water.

Of Course, if the water is good tasting look for London England Ale recipes, since they NEED hard, High Mineral Content.

The worst Beer I have ever had was made with 'Soft" water.
