You are going to PC the grain anyway. Use tap.

tap also has chlorine which helps kill mould and stuff, but I'm not sure if it damages shroom spores, and i'm not even sure if it gets broken up when its PC'd or something. Anyway go tap is what i'm trying to say.

Yeah, my opinion is, use tap if it's going to get PC'd, and use distilled for everything that's not going to get PC'd.

Shit... could have saved me a ton of $. I used mad distilled water because I didn't think tap was smart. Never even thought to ask about it... just assumed (and you know what that does... damn it).

i've never noticed a difference in distilled/bottled or tap water. and usually i'll boil the tap water before making a syringe with it..

I boiled water for syringes.

Tap for jars because that gets sterilized.

I tried to use distilled for casing and dunking but got lazy and used tap. So I guess it isn't necessary.

But remember it's all about minimizing risks

Soak and simmer with tap. Dunk with tap (h2o2 added) Tap for syringes (PCed).
