Water Sterilitity
    #872468 - 09/09/02 02:28 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

For the rye grain tek, when boiling the grains to achieve proper mositure content should sterile water be used ...such as natural spring store bought water....or is just tap water sufficient...Has anyone had any successful uncontaminations with boiling with just tap water

I use purified water....cause our tap water is crappy.

Really depends on the quality of your water source.

The sterility of the water is completely irrelevant because the whole lot gets sterilised in the PC anyway. But it's possible that pH, water hardness, chlorine and other things in your tap water could adversely affect the mycelium, so using bottled water is a safer bet.
