I use a 5 yr old regular old garden hose. Have for 2 years and my beers turn out fine. Adds to my unique flavor profile

I've plenty of toys for myself but the camper is my wife's.

Lead in a rubber hose? What good would that do the hose?
Even if there are chemicals leaching into the water in the hose surely running the hose for a few seconds and putting new water in it would get rid of that problem.
The problem I have is the mud stuck on the nozzle!

I use my hose to rinse out the MLT & brew pot before washing them like a regular person. Much easier than using the sink for this.

I used a reg garden hose for my first all grain beer. It tastes like the garden hose. I'll let it rest another week, but hopes aren't very high.....

In my experience, the garden hose "taste" doesn't go away. I used a new RV hose for a batch without running a lot of water through it first and got a strong garden hose taste in the finished beer. I let it ferment and then sit for 2 weeks in the kegerator, but you could still taste the hose in the aftertaste. It was pretty depressing to pour 5 gallons down the drain...

actually, lots of plastics have lead in them - helps keep them flexible. Check out christmas tree lights. I don't let my kid touch them anymore due to lead in the plastic.

I got a pottable water hose for about 12 dollars. They are much cheaper than the water hoses I bought.
