Default Albany Water

Hey guys I know there's a few from Albany at least, was just wondering if you have gone through the trouble of having the water checked and if you treat it at all?

Shameless bump since no one looks at this section?

I don't live in Albany (live on the other side of the river - East) so I can't comment on Albany's water. I have a well, the water tastes ok, but I having been using water from Spring Avenue, after which I noticed an improvement in the taste of my batches. I also was in the same time frame going from extract to all-grain, so at some point I will need to do a controlled experiment (do two parrallel batches, one with my well water and one with water from Spring Avenue).

I've had some interesting conversations there (Spring Avenue) with people who are filling up a few water jugs and I am filling 8 5-6 gallon containers.
