My brother who is in the water testing/management profession tells me that as you raise the tempeture of treated water the Chlorine disapates.
If this is indeed the case, why do we worry so much about it?
Wednesday I did a full boil with tap water (unfiltered) and then brought my volume up to 5 gal with bottled spring water.
How To Treat Water For The Average Homebrew
<--- goes into detail re: boiling for 30 minutes etc, I didnt do this, I boiled for like 5 minutes.
So now the question:
Does anyone use Tap water?
and if so do you feel a need to boil it?
Has anyone had a bad batch due to using tap water?
Also, does anyone do a partial boil and use an 8lb bag of ice to cool the wort?
Will the ice bug my brew?
Thanks in advance!
