I recently moved into a new house where the water was extremely hard. To combat this problem, I installed a water softener. I have since conducted a Ward Laboratories water report and the Na ppm is 219. In trying to do a little initial research, I have found that this water is not conducive at all to brewing and I should probably just go out and purchase distilled water for brewing at this point in time until I get a RO system. Any thoughts on this?
