I have a RO system installed in my house, since I'm doing extract full 5 gallon boil (never top off batch with cold water) would RO water be OK?  For all grain I understand we my have mashing complications.

Piching rates...smack pack, sometimes a starter if it is high gravity.  What exactly do they mean when your starter should be 2 liters?  Is that before decanting or do you pitch 2 liters?  I'm reading this from Homebrewers-Bible.  Very frustrated ready to quit...6 batch ruined since January...can't solve!

Impeciable sanitation from boiling equipmnent to 1 tbsp/gal bleach solution.  After brew cleaning with soap and extremely hot rinse.  Fermentation temps checked with the tape on fermometer always held to a 3-4 degree window 64-70 depending upon the yeast. Sometimes a starter sometimes not .  Secondary always at 56 degrees on basement floor.  Bottling temp 68 -74 degrees for 10 - 21 days whatever necessary to achieve carbonation.

HELP PLEASE My brew from the primary and secondary are fine, when bottled after two weeks a very bitter/harsh alcohol flavor develops and gets worse with time.  The gravity final gravity doesn't change during the process.  All other flavors disappear.  No rings in bottle necks, no gushers, and no exploding bottles.  Equipment has been either replaced or boiled for sterilization with no change.  Is it possible over crushing of grains can cause this?

Is it possible that oover crushing the grain will increase with age in the bottle or am I doomed with a house flavor.  My water is excellent drinking well water and available soft and filtered.  This problem occurs reardless of the style.
