Testing

While Beer is 90-97% water, it is a very tricky subject.

It is handled by Brew UK now.

While cheaper than Phoenix it doesn't cover as many ions and Neil doesn't make elementary mistakes and deny that the obviously incorrect results are wrong

Does Neil suggest the treatment for particular styles like Murphy? I need mine doing again.

No he dosent . . .but then Murphys suggestions are based around Murphys products and are not necessarily the best way to treat teh water for particular styles. Ideed I know brewers who used those recomendations, and made the beer worse. If you want a 'one size fits no one at all' approach they are sort of usable.
