I have been reusing and improvising equipment for a number of years now. I brew on the basement

let it set and see what happens. No point in doing anything. Just make things worse

certainly try a liquid yeast, and decide for yourself. I like the smack packs for liquid yeast.
Just smack it and let it set till it blows up. Instant starter. That's not to say i don't use
dry. I do....

Also you could just buy a small bottle of distilled and taste test side by side with tap. Is

try using distilled water. It is a perfect 7. No flavors, nothing

Your water is a bit basic. If it was lower than 7 it would be acidic. 8 is a decent base. 9
will clean your drains

that could be 9% to 12% alcohol.

I agree with pie man. Especially hoses. The are difficult to get clean. You may not be able to
see a slight stain on the imside. New one are cheap at any hardware stores.
