Water Chemistry Database

Browse our Water Chemistry Data:

 Water chemistry if done right can take your home-brewed beer’s quality to amazing new heights.

The key to getting the right water chemistry is knowing what you’re starting with. There are tests out there that will tell you exactly what your water consists of.

Whichever water test you choose, it will provide you ppm or mg/L amounts of at least six important compounds. Each style of beer will have different target values for these compounds, so it is important to know your water’s starting amounts.

  • Sodium (Na)
  • Calcium (Ca)
  • Magnesium (Mg)
  • Chloride (Cl)
  • Sulfate (SO4)
  • Bicarbonate (HCO3)
