About: “Water is arguably the most critical and least understood of the foundation elements in brewing beer. Water: A Comprehensive Guide for Brewers, third in Brewers Publications’ Brewing Elements series, takes the mystery out of water’s role in the brewing process. The book leads brewers through the chemistry and treatment of brewing water, from an overview of water sources, to adjusting water for different beer styles, and different brewery processes, to wastewater treatment. The discussions include how to read water reports, understanding flavor contributions, residual alkalinity, malt acidity, and mash pH.”

    If you order through Amazon, it won’t ship until October 7th. Not a huge deal but then you have to listen to everyone who gets it through the AHA talk about what a great book it is.

      That’s just a date and my guess is doesn’t necessarily have a reflection on reality. If it did, this would have shipped this past April :). Anyway, my guess is they will get it at about the same time as the BA/AHA.
