THey actually send you a packet/kit now with return postage for the water. Hence the price change.
DOnt bother with the brewers test unless you really think you have iron issues, househould test has all the info you need.

Its a bit more if you want the bottle and return label sent to you. https://producers.wardlab.com/BrewersKitOrder.aspx Still well worth it in my opinion.

It didnt cost 10 bucks to send a bottle, I am not even sure if they give both options anymore? Its been a year since I used them. Their website has a lot of conflicting price info, I assume it is not all up to date

I just ordered the beer test last week ( I am concerned about iron). $39.50

Iron you can usually easy find the info on your public works site.

I guess I timed my last test pretty well. Sent it in April. :smiley:

$2.60 more for the same test. Not too bad.

Assuming one is on city water, yes.
