Water Profile Table
Use the table below to add water adjustments for your beer. If you are brewing a MKRKIT, choose the recipe from the dropdown menu and the suggested water profile will be displayed. All additions of salts and minerals are listed in grams. If you are brewing a DIY recipe, be sure to enter the water amount you are adding to your BEERMKR in liters.
WARNING: Do not exceed the values listed for each profile. Bad, or even harmful, beer can result from incorrect measurements. This page was not designed to assist in custom water configurations. This page was designed to give you the correct weights of salts and minerals to add for a specific water profile to be used with your BEERMKR.
