Look in my signature for a thread on water reports that contain the kinds of variables that are important.
I have been using only bottled water to brew with because I don't know what is in my tap water. I just now went to the City of Houston Water Dept. website and found a report for my water. It seems they use Chloramine to disinfect so I guess that eliminates that as a potential water source for brewing?
Let me eat when I'm hungry, let me drink when I'm dry
Two dollars when I'm hard up, religion when I die
The whole world is a bottle, and life is but a dram
When the bottle gets empty, Lord, it sure ain't worth a damn
