Bottled water...

Postby lathe » Fri Jan 26, 2007 4:47 pm

I imagine many if not most brewers use local tap water. However, some may use purchased water because of poor local water quality. I recently came across a rather extensive list of bottled water profiles from around the world.

HERE IS THE LIST.

If you see a "brand" of water you would like added to BTP, please let us know.

It is also useful to cut water with a proportion of bottled water. This, of course, would require the possibility to use multiple sources of water, including bottled or distilled water.

Sorry to create such hassles, but it is a useful thing to be able to do.

When I lived on a well, I used Alhambra Drinking as a very nice Pilsen water, and a variety of "spring waters," including:
Alhambra Spring Water (I only see a single listing for Alhambra on the site, and it appears to be the Drinking Water; maybe they dropped the Spring Water)
Arrowhead Mountain Spring
Black Mountain Spring
Calistoga Mineral Water

I'll see what I can get cheapest at Costco when I go in the next few days and get back to you. Pretty interesting site, though.

You can ALREADY use multiple sources of water in BTP

Using the water chemistry table in BTP, you can add and combine as many varieties of water in whatever ratios you want, and BTP will add up the salts for you. The water won't appear on your ingredients list, though, but you could always add the few that you might use to your 'special ingredients' list and then browse for and add them that way; same way with salts, for those who want to have them appear on their ingredients list.

Cheers.

Good to know. Obviously I did not poke around in the water calculator enough yet. I concur that the ingredient/recipe integration (i.e., the lack of bringing in water volumes based on the mash schedule) is a problem currently.

I would like to see Crystal Springs and Silver Springs bottled water added to the BTP list.
