Tap water for pasturization?
    #589826 - 03/26/02 11:32 AM (16 years, 5 months ago)

Is tap water ok for the pasturization of straw and should the water be used after for rye jars? will it make a difference in growth?

I think you would be better off using distilled or spring water.
There are a lot of chem's in tap water, not enough to effect us humans (or so they say), but i think these chem's are absorbed by the medium along with the water.
i think there's chlorines, fluorines, phosphates, other chems added to play with the pH level (this is done for areas with old lead pipes as lead dissolves less readily in alkaline water), and who know what other god forsaken things they pump in there.

If all these chem's will have an adverse effect on you growing situation, is hard to say. But would you want to grow from a medium saturated with various unknown chemicals anyways?

I work with distilled water, all the peace of mind i need.
