I tried it once, believe it or not, 23 years ago. This was my first
batch of beer, and aside from all the other things we did wrong,
we used dehumidifier water. It had a metallic flavor. I believe the
correct word here is "duh". Maybe dehumidifier technology has
advanced in the last 23 years, so I would recommend taste the water
before you use it. If the ingredients don't taste good, neither
will the final product.
