Distilled Water where?
    #3299002 - 10/30/04 11:09 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Where do you use Distilled water and where does tap water work fine. Assuming that you are doing norming PCing of course.

First 24 hour soaking of grain?
Simmering of grain?
Cleaning starch off grain?
Coffee used for simmering of grain?
Casing mixture?

I know a number of these are a given, but for the low price of water if using it increases colonization times it would be worth it. Usually the teks just say water, but not what type.

Anything before the pc use tap water, for anything you use to mist, or mix casing with, use bottled.

I use tap water for everything. For my grain prep, for misting, for my humidifiers, all that junk.

I also use tap for everything. H202 goes into all water too (even misting..just a bit).

The cat also uses tapwater for everything, from spore syringes to casing mixtures.

Any water that is good for you is good for the casings/cakes/mist so if you drink your water out of bottles.... you know what to use but if you tapwater is just fine and you drink it use that.

I read in one of the teks (?) to use natural water, like from a pond, boiled. Going to try it next time unless someone here raises the red flag.
