what are the effects of chlorine and chloramine on the flavor of my beer do i need to boil extra time to get rid of the chlorine? chloramine takes tablets to get rid of.
If i do not get rid of these chemicals will is adversely affect my beers flavor?
Not getting rid of them WILL adversely affect your flavors. Imagine a fresh box of plastic bandaids - been there, done that. It's nasty.
My water is so far off, I gave up. I go to the extra expense of bottled spring water when I'm making beer.
so my best bet is to use distlled water. or does regular bottled water work?
Im on city water and I just filter it through a britta filter and it works pretty well.
If you are doing extract, distilled is OK. For all grain it is better to use spring water. You need the minerals.
Hey, knock that shvt off. We're drinkin' here.
