Dear Wiki user,

The "HomeBrewing" page has been changed by ClintonEbadi:

   * [[http://powersbrewery.home.comcast.net/~powersbrewery/watercalc.html|Water Adjustment Calculator]] and [[http://www.brewersfriend.com/water-chemistry/|an alternative calculator]]
   * [[http://www.brewersfriend.com/2009/03/14/all-grain-water-chemistry-brewing-information/|All Grain Water Chemistry]] Somewhat applicable for extract brewing
+  * [[https://sites.google.com/site/brunwater/water-knowledge|Bru'N Water Knowledge]] Spreadsheet water calculator (it works with Libreoffice), but more importantly a much more thorough explanation of water chemistry than provided elsewhere or in howtobrew.
  Cary and Raleigh use chloramines rather than chlorine for water purification. The homebrew shop was helpful and warned that this does not evolve out as gas during boiling like chlorine does, and results in band-aid like flavors in the final beer. To counteract this a quarter of a Campden tablet must be added for each five gallons of water used. This will react with the chloramines and cause them to evolve out as sulfur and chlorine gases within approximately fifteen minutes. The water may then be boiled as usual.
