Anybody know the chemistry numbers for this or how you would enter it in Bru’n Water or water chemistry program? Do you enter it the same as RO water?

Thanks!

Why don't you get the bottled waters that you can find the analysis on the label or on their website?

RO water and distilled are not the same.

I'd think distilled water will have very little if anything in it other than water.

In Bru’n Water there is an option when you’re specifying your dilution percentage whether you’re using RO or distilled water. Distilled water should basically be zeros across the board. Enter 100% for your dilution rate.

@camonick 's got it.
You can generally treat good RO as a blank slate as well. Check it with a cheap TDS meter to make sure the filters were working properly.

In Bru’n Water, there is also a suggestion to add yeast nutrient (Water Knowledge page, Section 2.5.4 Minor Ions, "Zinc" [link to water knowledge page]).
