Default Raleigh folks...

Do you guys have any links or info on your local water report?

I've searched around and I think I found one from 2005 but when I searched for Cary, it came up with Apex. Is that near you guys?

If you have a current one, please post it. In April if we brew, I'd like to brew a stout if the water is better for it than the Hampton water is.

I treated my water for the last porter I did, and I think that is what caused that sour taste--so I'd rather just brew something that would work best instead of messing with a treatment.

Dude,

I looked on my states DNR website to get connected to the local water district.

I emailed them my address and asked for the specific info. You could do the same.

This would be a good place to start looking, but you may need to check with individual city govt.

And if your buddy has a well, you're on your own....

maybe this too....

Oh, Damn. I was looking at your sig thinking Virginia. Sorry.

I should have known "Raleigh" NC. Thought there was a Raleigh in VA.

Emailing the local water district is the easiest way to go.

This is the latest report for Raleigh, sounds like the one you found. As far as I know, Cary gets their water from Raleigh so it should be relevant.

[edit]Actually, Apex & Cary have their own treatment plant now - here's a report from Cary, but it doesn't seem to provide the details you would need.

Dude,

Apex is close to Cary. Remember I was worried about that chemical fire in Apex when we were down there for the Durham festival?

Here's the real deal - all the lab details. Classified as "moderately soft".

That is definitely what we are looking for! But....I wonder why it is only from 2005? Tell them to update it!

I'll e-mail them I guess....

Thanks everyone!
