Reverse Osmosis (RO) Water
Brewing water quality can have a major impact on beer taste, but often there is no practical option other than tap water and Campden treatment, and even this is often insufficient to overcome shortcomings in your water.
RO is a solution since it is effectively water stripped of all the components and elements that can combine to create noticeable off flavours in your beer. RO is usually not used "as is" since a small amount of ideal elements are needed to ensure mash pH, yeast health, etc.,
Now, not only can you order RO water for your next brew day, but you can order it with, or without (if you have the elements) a Water Additions Kit.
Water Additions Kits
Since the required additions vary depending on the style of beer being brewed, as well as the grain bill, we have created a selection of AVERAGE additions to be used as a starting point for those new to water profiling. The best way to create a proper profile for your brewing water is to use an online calculator (such as Bru'n Water), input both the base water profile and the grain bill, and make additions based on the results.
Here are the average additions kits we offer (click HERE for more details)
- Standard Ale (yellow, pale ale, smash, blonde)
- Hoppy Ale (west coast, IPA, pale ale)
- Juicy (NEIPA, milkshake IPA, etc)
- Amber Ale (reds, dark ales)
Our RO water is sold in 11 liter (2.9 gallon) plastic jugs that are cleaned and sanitized between each use. Each jug also carries a sticker showing the date it was bottled, and for freshness, no water older than 30 days will be sold. There is a deposit on each jug, which is refunded when both jug and cap are returned in an effort to keep them from entering the landfill before their usable life is up. Most 5 gallon batches will require somewhere between 7 and 9 gallons of water, including sanitizing water, but there may be some left over. Keep it in a clean container and please return our jugs empty. NOTE: Jugs not returned within 20 days of purchase need to be replaced and the refund is no longer offered. Please help us keep this service working for everyone and return the empty jugs!
