As previously discussed, I’ve moved my brewing operation almost entirely to my basement. One of the biggest advantages so far is that I’ve eliminated the trip down a flight of stairs carrying a scalding hot 6.5 gallon full brew kettle. I currently get my brewing water from upstairs. It’s a 2 stage carbon filter connected to a hard water line. I am very happy with that water. I do not do any changes to water chemistry when I brew. I’m not interested in that. My results are good, and I’m happy. I’m considering getting water from my basement, to reduce carrying water. The laundry sink that I use for washing and chilling has soft water on it. The hard water line that goes upstairs to the filter is right there, but I would have to do a bit of plumbing to make it available at the sink in the basement. Would I see an improvement by using filtered soft water? I know some pilsners use soft water. Is it worth a small plumbing project to continue to use filtered hard water? If I make a switch, it’ll be all or nothing. I’d like some input from those who know. Which would generally be better? Filtered hard water or filtered soft water?
