I'd love a read at porters & stouts if you don't mind Danny.

BigDanny84

No bother Dave. I might take a loan of the water one so please.

Good idea Dave.
I was thinking of this before for the Cork contingent.
I wanted to go all fancy and use a cloud based library app and then dropped the idea.
A library thread is nice simple idea.

I read your post Johnrm about a library when you posted it. So in effect I stole your idea lol :-\
You were 100% when you said most books are read once ...... It just seems like a good idea to share between the lads.

Danny I'll be sure to bring the brewers publication on water but I will say that out of all 4 books in the series it's definitely the hardest read. I'm studying a science degree with the OU and I found it very difficult at parts it's all enzymes and substrates. Saying that though, some of it is straight forward enough.


BigDanny84

No worries, I'll give it a go as I am considering going down the reverse osmosis route.

davebhoy1975

how'd you get on with the book? you still considering reverse osmosis?

It's a tough read, you were right. Have struggled to read more than a couple of chapters so far. Need to give it another go. Ya, still thinking of RO, have seen people online saying that water chemistry has made the biggest difference to their beer.

I got gifted a couple of books at Christmas but haven't started any of them yet.

How are you getting on with the stout and porter book?

davebhoy1975

I finished the porter book in a few hours. In fact I've read it twice now. Great book.
