I recently went to a .5 micron carbon filter for my water. I find that If I run it slowly and give it minute or two, the water tastes pretty good. I run it into another bucket then directly into my HLT. If I rush this, it tastes chalky. I'm thinking that might be the charcoal. The .5 micron will remove chlorine, but leave behind some good minerals. The key is to taste it and use the water only when 100% satisfied with the taste. I'm still dialing it in, but I've been very satisfied with the beer so far.
