Rain Water??
    #2426091 - 03/13/04 03:17 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

If one were to gather up rain water by placing a big bowl outside during a downpour, and then take that water and boil it for x amount of time, then let to cool down, bottled up, and put in a spray bottle...  Would this be a good misting water for fruiting cakes?
Or would it even need to be boiled? 
WOuld this introduce contams, or would it be beneficial to them in any way like when they are growing in the wild?

Just curious if anyone has ever tried this or if it would be good or bad as a downpour is expected soon in my friends area...

Thanks :smile:

rain is my friends favorie thing to use from soaking grains to making syringes he allways prefers to use collected rain h20.

this was made useing rain for every step, it was dunked in unsterilized rain water and rolled in rain moist verm (not that my friend would suggest you use anything that was un sterilized my friend was just playing around)
and also it doesn't really prove that rain is better or anything but me friend hates to use store bought spring h20. it is probably all in his head that the rain is better,but he just loves it.

Rain water should be sterile. I'd try to elevate whatever is collecting the water so nothing gets to it.

Rain water is much richer in minerals than regular tap water. That maybe why he is getting such nice looking cakes.
