Water?

Post by wottaguy » Mon Nov 27, 2006 2:22 pm

Hi All..

Would anyone know of a good water test kit so I can get a handle of my current brewing water? Is there a test kit that will test for the 6 componants that are listed in bTpro's Water Analysis section? Any help would be great!
Price is a concern so the kit needs to be at a reasonable price too!

Thanks!

Ron

wottaguy,

I think people have used http://www.wardlab.com/ with great success. I'm thinking about sending in my water there sometime soon. Look at the W-6 Household Mineral Test for $15

Later,

You may be able to save your self the money and ask your water provider (if you don't have one ignore this suggestion.) for a water analysis report. Most water providers do tests every month and provide the results free of charge. Many are online and contain the information needed for the BTP water analysis section.

If that doesn't work out for you though, I've used Ward Labs and they did a great job.
