Water: A Comprehensive Guide for Brewers by John J. Palmer

water a comprehensive guide for brewers brewing elements

Although the latter isn't a significant issue for homebrewers, it's good to be aware of industry challenges and possible solutions. This book assembles a wide variety of information focused on the specialised water needs in brewing and makes it accessible to all brewers. In many places it is written more as a guide for a technician - to follow without thinking too much, but I guess it was the purpose. In practice many home brewers will not go to the depths discussed, however nice to be aware of all the potential implications of water adjustments. A perennial best seller since the release of the third edition in 2006, How to Brew, is a must-have to update every new and seasoned brewer's library. And I want to say that it's essential reading for every homebrewer, but honestly, it probably isn't. From an overview on sources, quality and geography, the book shows brewers how to read water reports, understand flavor contributions and adjust the chemistry of brewing water.
