I have city water and sewer. The tap water smells strongly of chlorine, so i've never used it before to brew. We have a natural spring in nearby Berkeley Springs, WV which is free. I load up on it evertime im in the area. Last time I took 17 gallons. I brewed my first AG yesterday and it would have been a pain in the a$$ to hook up the wort chiller just to help the tap water reach a higher temp faster. It seemed like a good idea when it came to me but in hind site, not really.
