Russ Gelinas asks if dehumidifier water is good to use in homebrew.

Well, last fall I made a bitters with dehumidifier water and it turned out
all right. The water is pretty soft, similar to distilled water. Before
collecting the water for brewing, be certain to wash the catch basin out
thoroughly. I'm currently collecting water for another batch, but have
to start over because my roommate found most of a spider in the catch
basin. Out go five gallons!

Before using the collected water, I boiled the amount I was going to add
after boiling the wort (I extract brew). Although none of us smoke, I
thought it was a good idea to sanitize water left sitting in open air.
Then again, I boil the tap water I use for homebrewing too.
