First off, this board is both awesome and overwhelming. I'm going to attempt my first homebrew next week. I live in middle Tennessee and have access to fresh, clean, yummy tasting spring water. The question is do I need to boil the water before I brew (don't have a pot big enough to do a full boil), and how long can the water sit in jugs (at room temp) before you use them. I could probably collect the water the day before brewing. I don't want to leave anything to chance. Oops, one more question, should I sanitize the water jugs with one step or is regular old "clean" good enough. Thanks!
