Bru’n Solutions is a worldwide provider of water and wastewater consulting services to the brewing industry. Our past consulting assignments have included services to both major breweries and craft breweries.
Bru’n Solutions is led by Martin Brungard, P.E., D.WRE. Martin has over 30 years experience as a professional engineer with specialization in water and wastewater services to both industries and municipalities. He holds Bachelors and Masters degrees in Civil Engineering and a Masters degree in Environmental Engineering with specialization in water resources. Those degrees were awarded by the University of Florida. He is a licensed professional engineer in the states of Indiana, Florida, and Georgia.
Along with his extensive engineering experience and skill, Martin is also an accomplished homebrewer and beer judge with over 15 years experience. His brewing knowledge is evidenced by his BJCP National judge rating and his numerous brewing technical articles published in The New Brewer and Zymurgy. He also served as a technical editor for Water: A Comprehensive Guide for Brewers (Palmer & Kaminski, 2013). He was the primary author of that book’s chapters on water treatment and wastewater treatment.
A compilation of his brewing water knowledge is presented at https://sites.google.com/site/brunwater/water-knowledge. That site has helped thousands of brewers understand the importance of brewing water chemistry and its effect on beer quality and flavor. Allied with his brewing knowledge, Martin authored the popular Bru’n Water software package that helps brewers more accurately predict their brewing water chemistry and mash pH response. That software is used by homebrewers and craftbrewers, worldwide.
The combination of engineering expertise and experience, brewing and judging experience, and service to the brewing industry make Mr. Brungard an ideal consultant for breweries facing water, wastewater, and beer fault challenges.
