Turning Sewer Water Into Beer?

Posted: Updated:

(KGW) Oregon is known for specialty beers, but what about a beer made with sewer water?

It's what some local home-brewers will be doing this summer.

Jeremie Landers will be one of them. He's been home-brewing beer for nearly a decade and has even converted the garage of his North Portland home into a tap room.

"I love the experimentation process," he said.

This summer Landers will be one of more than a dozen local home brewers taking part in a unique experiment. Instead of using normal tap water to make their beer, the brewers will be using what was once sewer water, straight from the treatment plant.

It's all part of a competition Washington County's Clean Water Services is putting on to demonstrate different uses for its recycled water.
