Hi kids, this is my first time posting. I hope I am in the right place. We can live a long time with little food, but not long at all without water.

I wanted to ask what you all are doing for water purification? I am seriously thinking about a Berky.

From everything I have read, Berkely is the way to go.

Make sure you are getting a water purifier, and not a water filter.
Also compare by the micron size of filteration. Not the claims of filtering 99.9% of contaminantes. That is a filter not a purifier, a purifyer should be less than 0.1 micron rated.

Not really, it's a slow working energy hog and it strips the minerals we need from the water. I'll use the gravity feed berkey and save the still for the mash. :)
Stock up on your sugar and tomato paste before it gets too expensive.

Distilled water is the purest but tends to be a bit acidic, so you need to raise the ph a bit and should add some minerals for the longhaul :beercheer:
