Water can have a great influence on the taste of your craft beer. About 85-95% of beer is made up of water, so water is one of the most important ingredients in beer, as well as wine and spirits, and has a major impact on the final batch. This is why you have to consider your brewing water quality - most brewers find it necessary to treat the water before using it for brewing. However, the best water for commercial brewing varies greatly depending on whether you are brewing using extract, all grain, or on the style of beer that you are brewing.
Beer Brewers prefer to start with carbon filtration to remove chlorine, chloramines, and other organic chemicals, off-tastes, and odors from the brew water. Many brewers will then follow carbon filtration with reverse osmosis to remove minerals, salts, metals, and more, which provides a blank canvas to compose the desired mineral profile from scratch. Brewers can then add their own secret "cocktail" of ingredients to the purified water, including brewing salts such as calcium chloride, gypsum (calcium sulfate), and baking soda (sodium bicarbonate). Our custom low waste "water saver" Reverse Osmosis systems also feature a blending valve which allows you to dial-in your desired TDS level.

However, there are certain users such as craft beer & micro-breweries, labs, manufacturing, and premium coffee houses that often desire the ability to monitor and control the TDS level of the output purified water.
