At FilterWater.com.au  we have a great suggestion for making a better home brew.

A lot of people ask me what is so special about the home brew beer I  love to make and this is usually from other home brew enthusiasts as well. Many are surprised to hear my secret is really simple filtered water. Specifically using a RO (reverse osmosis) system to remove most of the chlorine and other nasty chemicals that can effect the taste and smell.






All good home brewed beers start with having happy yeast and they are particularly fussing about the water not just the temperature which is quite specific for most yeast but the quality of the water meaning has it had the chlorine, salts and other chemicals removed.

I would also recommend a system with a pump as it can take a long time to fill 23 liters of water without one.

If you have some spare time I believe it is  worth reading an interesting publication produced the ADA (American Dental Association).

It is a 70+ page PDF document called Fluoridation Facts  it provides some interesting information about fluoride and what the recommend.

For example this is a table that is on page 25 suggests that infants should get very close to 0 ZERO fluoride.

ADA Fluoride Table

The following is a quote for page 26. In my opinion suggests that children get a lot fluoride through drinking tap water.

Children living in a community with water fluoridation get a portion of their daily fluoride intake from fluoridated water and a portion from dietary sources which would include food and other beverages.

When considering water fluoridation, an individual must consume one liter of water fluoridated at 1 part per million (1 ppm) to receive 1 milligram (1 mg) of fluoride.

Children under six years of age, on average, consume less than one-half liter of drinking water a day.

Therefore, children under six years of age would consume, on average, less than 0.5 mg of fluoride a day from drinking optimally fluoridated water (at 1 ppm)

That is not even taking into account another statement that studies show children who brush their teeth twice daily are swallowing on average “0.6mg of fluoride” as well. You can reduce this unnecessary expose to fluoride by using  a reverse osmosis system.
