Default Water ?

Does anyone know of a good source to use in match beer styles to water profiles?

Thanks

Are you looking for something that will tell you the water profile for a certain style or something that will tell you how to adjust your water to match a certain water profile?

Both I guess, first I would need to know what the ideal water profile would be for a paticular style and then how to adjust my water to match.

Brewing software (promash, beersmith) have libraries of main brew-city water profiles, and tools to calulate salt additions.

My opinion: it wont make your beer any better

Next question, which I should have asked already, is whether you are an extract or All-grain brewer. If you are an extract brewer, the water does not matter.

If you are an all-grain brewer I recommend reading Designing Great Beers. It provides a detailed explanation of the different water profiles and gives some information on how to adjust your water. I'd also recommend talking to other brewers in your area as they can give you information on what adjustments they make.
