i live in NSW Australia, I remember one of the finest tap beers I ever had
came from Bulahdelah bowling club.

The reason, Hunter brewery uses rainwater I am told. Sydney's Carlton Unted
brewery uses pure old Sydney tap water.

Good enough for the experts good enough for me.

What I don't like about the expert's brew is the arsenic used to kill off
bacteria and give me a headache.

They say distilled rain water is even better for brewing but I can think of
a 1001 better uses for a still come about Autumn <Evil grin>. I reckon just
boling rain water is good enough for this piss head.



Re: Rain Water in brewing
I thought about this too. I get filtered water from my home brew shop which
is a bit of a pain in the arse carting 60 litres to the car when I do a
brew.
Problem is, it doesn't rain much in Townsville!
