Burton-on-Trent is considered by many as the cradle for the popular India Pale Ale, as it was this town with its hard water and peculiar water profile that allowed the hop character of the style to really shine.

To achieve the same pronounced hop bite, many British brewers reverted to mimicking the water profile of this town, a process that has even been dubbed as “burtonisation”. It involved the addition of special salts and minerals that increased the water's hardness, which ultimately led to a better beer clarity and a brighter hop flavour and aroma.

These days, you can get the same results by simply using Burton Water Salts.

Add the whole package to 5 gallons of wort right before the boil.
