For the past 3 years, whenever I have brewed an all grain batch, I have collected water from my basement at a spigot where the water first enters the house from the well (so it wouldn’t get to the water softner). I am now wondering why I don’t use the outdoor spigot. My only concern is the hose the water would travel through and possibly picking up something that could add to off flavors.
Am I being over cautious???
