Some brewers in our club used this lab to test their water.  Looks like the "W-6" test for $16.50 would suffice for brewing.

You may want to rethink that and actually test your water for things beyond brewing.

That was done with my house inspection, with exceptional results.

You may need to test your water at least twice a year... once in the winter and once in the summer. In my area the water company pulls from two different sources both of which have drastically different water profiles but they blend them. In the winter water source A provides 60% of the water and in the summer it only provides 40% of the water.
