    hi there, this will be my first brew soon. Is there any water testers I can buy to see what the water at home is like? Also is there any guides as to what I should be aiming for? At the moment I am just using a wort kit until I build a Herms kit or buy a grainfather.

    Right here. https://www.sydneywater.com.au/SW/w.../safe-drinking-water/water-analysis/index.htm Click on home brewers and you're away. If you're using a FWK, you don't need to worry about your water (especially if you're using Sydney tap water), apart from getting rid of chlorine/chloramines. Either boil the water you're adding, or use some ascorbic acid and/or camphor tablets. I use a carbon filter and ascorbic acid. Works a treat.

    I think you mean Campden tablets.
