Default making brewing water from distilled water

Hi All

If you were to deconstruct distilled water would the (insert any common brewing salt) be 0.0 ppm?


If you know of a web site or post that gives basic and explicit instructions on how to make brewing water from distilled water - please post it in a reply

Thanks

cootr, you might want to consider building on top of RO water. It's difficult to find distilled under a buck a gallon. If you have a water store nearby, they'll be in the 40-50/gallon cent range for RO. You'll be using fewer additives as well.

Just a thought.

cheers

Thanks for the info - I just down loaded it

Any comments on my first question?

"If you were to deconstruct distilled water would the (insert any common brewing salt) be 0.0 ppm??

Thanks

I just wanted to give this older thread a bump because I've been thinking about this a lot lately.
