cool down that brew

Before checking the gravity we make sure the brew is 60 degrees F.
The hydrometer reads most accurately at this temperature.

What kind of water do you use to homebrew?

I usually use 2.5 gallons of store bought drinking water and another 2.5 gallons of spring water.
I put one gallon of each in the boil pot for the wort along with half a gallon of tap water to make up for what boils away into steam.
I add the remaining 3 gallons of water into the carboy after the wort is chilled and yeast is added.
