I always use spring water. I figure with all the work and cost that goes in an extract kit, the extra $3 for the non-boiled water is a small price to pay. Just my $.02.

Won't make much difference.

Some local breweries may have a water supply that they will allow you to purchase water from. I've been told that the Grain Belt brewery here in Minneapolis sells 5 gal jugs for pretty cheap. Something like $3.50 per jug. But to save the hassell you can just grab 5 gal of spring water from the local grocery store. Boil 2.5 gal for your wort and add the other 2.5 gal once you put the wort in the primary. No need to boil the other 2.5.
