While the drought in California is making the national news, Oregon is having it’s own water issues. It concerns me quite a bit and not just as a homebrewer. We need beer for most everything but we need water to live; it’s not a very complicated argument.
Which is why reading this story about a water-recycling power system is especially cool. Breweries use so much water, anything they can do to lessen the impact helps and I hope (and expect) that more systems like this will see implementation in the future.
