    Water for Birdwatchers mash

    Ok I may be late posting but I am up to page 70 and so far no one seems to deal with the water! Jack Daniels is all about the water. We all have water available but what does it contain? What about PH, PPM, chlorine, iron and such. Maybe a little more infomation on the water would help in mashing. I'm thinking about getting my water right and then mix the BW receipt in. I would like constructive responses.

    Heya Norske and welcome...

    There are a number of threads here and at homedistiller.org that discuss water quality, content and effect.

    A quick search here;

    Lots of opine. I don't like my rural water's content so I use Ozarka (filtered spring water) or carbon filtered tap water for my consumption needs.

    Cheers...

    I use burton water salts to emulate the mountain water--- there is also Dublin water salts to us to make Irish style whiskey. Naturally both are used with distilled water. :P)
