distilled/purified water
    #1195275 - 01/06/03 04:39 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

I am wanted to know everyones thoughts on using distilled water for the jars?
I have heard that it lacks mineral content so its not as efficient as tap water.
Also I've read that distilled water has a greater contamination risk. If you think about it though are tap water contains bleach and other harsh chemicals known to kill mycelium. just my thoughts hope to hear back from ya

I have used purified water and have seen no noticable difference.
Worked ok for me.

I used distilled water and it makes no difference. I have 8 fully colonized jars right now using distilled water. Even though mineral content is lower it makes no difference since the mycellium gets nutrients from the brf anyway. Not only that, distilled water is way less likely to be contaminated than tap water. You could also use spring water. If you wanna go all out and want to use some good water, use Evian. LOL.
