A Simple Guide to Messing with Brewing Water Chemistry

Adding chemicals to your brewing water and messing with its chemistry for the first time can be an intimidating process at first but this video is to help break it down to a more simple level. I hope to show that it is much easier than you might think to do this, and it will take your beer from good to great. In this video I break down brewing water chemistry on a basic level, I show you how to look up your local water report, and how to design your recipe water profile based on everything earlier.
