Friend of mine south of town on Archer road uses extract with 100% tap water and I think his beer tastes fine. So I definitely think there's some variation in the amount of chlorine or choramine depending on where you are. 5 gal of RO water is $2.50 from the machine at Publix, so I see no reason to risk it with tap anymore.

Why? I use a pinic tap with a section of bottling tube shoved into the tap and never had problems holding carbonation.

Just turn the gas down to 2-3psi and cap on foam.
