My wife bought me the mr. beer kit for an early christmas present. My first batch is in the bottles and I've been reading on this forum that 4 weeks at room temp is recommended. I used distilled water like the video said. I'm exited to see how things turn out with this batch but I was wondering if anyone had used natural spring water to brew with. I don't think it will add any amazing taste I just thought it would be cool to use some of the natural spring water here in Hot Springs to make my beer. I would think it would need to be boiled first to kill any of the bugs living in this water. I mean this water does come out of the ground very hot but still there are many organisms that can survive high temps, and I don't want to find out how they ferment. I just wanted to know if any of you had tried it? If you have did you just cover you water with a lid after boiling it to prevent any contaminates from falling back into the water as it cooled? Thanks for any input.
