Is my batch ruined???

Postby Yooj160 » Fri Jan 23, 2004 11:01 pm

Hi all:

I'm a newbie to homebrewing and I started my first batch earlier today. I was wonder if its OK to use bottled spring water that has not been boiled?

My situation is this: I added my wort to 2 gallons of spring water but I forgot to boil/cool the 2 gallons before hand. Now its all in the my batch ruined? Do I need to dump it out and start over?

I don't believe you ruined it. Most extract recipies require that you top off the wort with water anyway. I never boiled it and the beer turned out great. When you convert to all grain that won't be an issue.
