The most basic of ingrediennts

Recommended Posts

Brand new here and chomping at the bit to get my first batch going. My question is all about the water you need to use fro brewing and fermenting. I know I read somewhere chlorinated tap water is an absolute "Ya don't wanna do that" kinda thing, so here are the other options:

 

Filtered tap water, say like through a Pur water filter that removes chlorine?

Bottled water that is readily available, such as Spring, Drinking or Distilled? And which?

 

I know MRB has chlorine test paper but the information about that refers to sanitizing or disinfecting, not brewing.

 

Thanks in advance!

NEVER use distilled water for brewing.

 

If it tastes good, you can use it.  So, if your PUR water filter water tastes good, use it.

 

If it's not cold tap water, refrigerate it and then use it (except for the water you boil, that doesn't have to be refrigerated).

 

Lots of good info in my signature :)
