Hello All,

Had a conversation with a group of friend about different aspects about beer manufacturing.

We were discussing about water chemistry, and one of the folks assured that the use of RO Water will require to file a formula to the TTB.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Nil :mug:

That makes no sense. RO water is just water without minerals.

Yep, yet filing a formula would a pain as one would have to wait for the Brewer's Notice (approx. 6 months, best case) and then file. This will extend the approval process for extra 6 months, which would impact amortization and go against the business cash flow.

Besides, I know a number a brewery that use RO water since day 1 and did not have to file any formula.

Thanks, Nil :mug:
