Good little article about water and brewing.  From NPR - your tax dollars at work.

That is a great story Steve....
I currently run all my well water through a RV filter to make my beer......
Maybe I should try just using the Well Water which has a slight sulpheric taste.
Should be fun experimenting......maybe make 2 identical batches.....one with the unfiltered well water and one with the filtered well water...

keep in mind while NPR is gov't supported, that funding is less than 10% annually. I used to work for an NPR station in Seattle before I started in TV. They do a TON of audience research (national and affiliates) and pride themselves on speaking to their audience as much as possible. Stories about brewing water aren't going to happen out of nowhere on NPR. Now, KBOI-TV might be a different story......
