So I brewed with 100% Lake Superior water..
 
and the beer turned out great. I made a Cream of 3 Crops AG, and the beer was incredibly smooth and refreshing.

No additives or anything. For those who don't know or live down south, Lake Superior is super clear and cold, I think the clarity is around 40+ or so.

Anyways, it was fun to do something a little different.

Hmm... I'd have to travel a bit North (Lake Huron) or a bit South (Lake Erie) to give this a try. Somehow I don't think the water from the nearby Detroit River would yield quite the same result. Detroit River Heavy Metal Ale anyone? :p

Seriously though. Very cool. :mug:

Hmmmm. The lake is frozen at the moment but some of the edges are thawing some. It sure is cold, though!

Nothing an Eskimo Ice Auger can't help you with!

I recently brewed a stout with some spring water my dad brought out for me from the Mississippi river valley in Illinois. It had lots of floaties in it but I gave it a try anyway. It turned out great. I wish I had access to a natural spring out here in Santa Fe. There is a natural spring up near Arapahoe Basin in Colorado I plan on brewing with in the near future as well.

Only Great Lake I see Much is Lake Eire....Not sure if I should get some of it because I know what Buffalo does to it....the stuff coming off the falls looks great though

oh down here in bama I'd have to go with a nice spring cause Lake Guntersville is wow not clear at all

Ah just filter through a coffee filter to get the "chunks" out!
