If I'm brewing AG, the minerals go into the strike water before I add it to the mash tun. If I'm brewing extract, I add the minerals at the beginning of the boil, if I add them at all (which I don't always do, since minerals are supposed to be in the extract).


Beer is good for anything from hot dogs to heartache.

I brewed my first ever batch with distilled water thinking that this would be the best water to brew with. Found out before I even cracked open my first bottle that spring was supposed to be the best and that tap was even better than distilled as long as you could drink it. The brew was an extract brew, but it came out fine. Now I use tap for everything AG or extract, but my tap water is good. If it wasn't I would use spring though not distilled.
