The brewing water treatment contributes significantly to the taste of a beer, as rarely raw water is locally available in the respectively required, optimal water quality. However, the composition of the ingredients in the brewing water decisively determines the taste of the beer. Each type of beer (for example, ale, pilsner, wheatbeer) requires its own, individual brewing water composition, which can only be provided with the right brewing water treatment. An unsuitable brewing water quality not only affects the taste, but also interferes with the brewing process and thus increases the production costs.
Every spring water, well water and surface water has its own primeval composition. This is mainly due to the different soil layers and rock types with which the water came into contact on its long journey. As a result, the composition of the raw water differs from place to place and thus its influence on the taste of the beer. The treatment of the brewing water must therefore be adjusted not only to the beer to be brewed, but always also to the individual raw water composition on site.
