First off... Who runs out of C40???It's true.... I ran out of C-40. I'm so ashamed!
I have been building from grocery store bought RO for the last several batches. It's nice and cheap and gives me a better idea of my starting point. After reading HoosierBrew's suggestion on another thread, I also bought a cheap TDS meter. Have not brewed since I bought it though. My water softened tap water read somewhere in the 130 range though. Glad I'm using RO!So the RO reads what - let others know for comparison.

RO will have a small amount of minerals. How small depends on the feed water and the filter condition. You could be fine without testing, but if you are like me your curiosity will get the best of you.
I have to ask, did you ever get the spring water tested? That could help you decide. Spring water can be very low to very high in minerals.
Meridian has a big apricot/nectarine aroma that would really compliment them well.
Here's my black IPA hop schedule.... It's on tap now for the second time.... One of my best recipes...
FWH = 1 oz Chinook and 1 oz Simcoe
60 minute = 2 oz Columbus
30 minute = 1 oz Chinook
10 minute = 1 oz Simcoe, 1 oz Galaxy, 1 oz Centennial, ½ oz Chinook
0 minute = 1 oz Simcoe, 1 oz Galaxy, 1 oz Centennial, ½ oz Chinook
Dry Hop = 2 oz Simcoe, 2 oz Galaxy, 2 oz Centennial, ½ oz Chinook
Pretty sure I'd drink one or five of those !
+1 Thanks for sharing. I love all those hops.
