Default Water

Hard or soft water. Good, bad or no difference?

For extract brewing, if the water tastes ok, don't worry.

The corollary, of course, is that if it does not taste good, try something else.

And to add to what david 42 said.. it would depend on what style you were trying to brew if you were doing all grain.

IE; Pilsener = soft water....Stout = harder water
