Water For Beer Brewing

Written by Oz Brew Crew

August 7, 2020

By using standard unfiltered tap water to fill your fermenter you can sometimes develop problems with your brew after you have done everything else right.

By hooking up a carbon filter to your tap, you can eliminate problems with your brew that could be caused by water. Carbon filtering can also give your beer a cleaner taste, as it’s like drinking a more purified form of water.

A cheap carbon filter for filling your brew can be obtained for under $25. The carbon must be fully replaceable and should be changed every 10 brews, depending on how bad your water is.

If you have had problems with brews and you can’t explain the reasons why, then maybe you should look at a cheap carbon filter that will certainly enhance the flavour of your beer, as well as help your brewing process be more successful.
