Default Zionsville IN water?

Anybody brewing with it? I just started all grain brewing and was wondering if this water is good to go, or if changes need to be made...thanks

The IN Homebrewer of the Year is from Zville and he uses RO. I'm not sure what the local water quality is.

Pretty sure the water comes from Eagle Creek. I'm also from Zionsville and use RO water and build up using Martin's spreadsheet as a guide. Thanks Martin! I had not entered a NHC in over 10+ years until this with two beers advancing and a bronze in the finals. Highly doubt the results would have been the same with city water. Do yourself a favor and buy the RO water from a grocery machine or install a basic RO kit for as I have done. Good luck and feel to contact me for questions.

Thanks! I don't really know the first thing about using RO water and creating my own profile, but I will certainly start researching this.
