I have chlorine\chloramine in my tap water and I bottle. I normally clean with bbrite, rinse with tap water, and then sanitize with star san. Could the rinse water be affecting my beer? Should I be rinsing ro or spring water?

I got them with a recipe kit a long time ago, but I can't even think of where to start looking for new ones at a store....Toys R Us?
Anything I can use in a pinch? Trying to think of something I can sanitize and drop in there....
Oh shid.... How did I end up in the houston thread.... This was for the Amsterdam thread.... Darn iPhone .. That's it blame the phone.
It's better to bring friends...
A comp in Brooklyn, NY mentioned in the new issue of BYO requires $17.00 per entry. Isn't that a bit steep?? Thos most I've ever seen is $7.00 per entry.
Orval is one of my favorite beers. I've had it fresh and aged. Love them both. I wouldn't call it a "soured" beer, since brett doesn't produce very much acidity. The brett character in Orval is certainly pronounced, especially once it ages. But it is mellow. To me the brett adds subtle hints of cherry pie, especially once it ages.
I have to say, I haven't found Orval that enticing. My favorite Belgian so far has been Kwak... Not sure what it is about Orval I don't like. Last time I poured some I had wayyyyy too much foam, and there was a super strong bite to it. Too young maybe? Not treated properly?
