Frequently Asked Questions
Where can I buy hops locally?
What are the water profiles for Eugene and Springfield?
In general, both Eugene and Springfield have water that is relatively neutral in minerals. This gives the town a “Pilsen” style profile. Both EWEB and SUB have basic water reports on their websites: EWEB / SUB. In terms of what to do with this information, it is strongly suggested to read John Palmer’s section in How to Brew on water adjustments and mash pH. Other resources that can be useful: Water: A Comprehensive Guide for Brewers by John Palmer and Colin Kaminski & Bru’n Water – Created and updated by Martin Brungard
