Description

Description

The quality of the water that you start with will affect your final product, so take the mystery out of making great-tasting beer with the BrewLab™ Test Kit for home brewers.

BrewLab is an economical, easy-to-use test kit to quickly measure the mineral content of water and allow the brewer to make informed decisions in the brewing process.  Great beer starts with a knowledgable brewer.

Better chemistry = better beer

  • Alkalinity is the carbonate and bicarbonate content of the water, which acts to raise the pH of the mash and beer
  • Chloride ion acts to bring out the sweetness and fullness of the malt flavor
  • Dissolved oxygen can have both a positive and a negative impact on beer.  Fermentation itself is an anerobic process, but yeast cells require oxygen for growth
  • Calcium helps prevent enzymes from denaturing and extends their activity in mash, promoting clarity, flavor and stability.
  • Magnesium is an important yeast nutrient
  • The mineral content of the water directly affects the pH of the mash, and the pH of the mash affects the entire brewing process.
  • Sodium acts in concert with chloride to enhance the sweetness and fullness of the malt, but too much can oversalt the beer and result in salty or metallic flavors.  
  • Sulfate ion acts to accenturate the hoppiness and dryness of the beer, making it more crisp tasting
  • Measurement of total dissolved solids allows the brewer to quickly determine if there has been a shift or change in a water source or brewing process as well as provide a QA check on demineralization and waste treatment effectiveness.
