You would be better getting the lake water through a shallow well/hole because the ground will act as a filter.
Relax - I brewed a Saison Saturday and pitched liquid yeast (no starter - guilty as charged on the yeast abuse). No airlock activity and didn't sweat it. Monday night with no bubbling, I pushed down on the rim of the lid all around the top of the bucket, swirled the contents gently and watched as the machine gun started. Never even cracked the lid. With more experience, you will get used to delays and false alarms. Welcome to a great hobby!
I would like to brew with water from the chain o'lakes where my family has a house and vacations. It is a spring fed crystal clear chain of lakes. What would be the best way to collect and filter the water for brewing?What are you trying to filter? Boiling will kill any unwelcome life forms. But you might also have petroleum fumes, fertilizer runoff, and such...
That one is funny.No, I didn't laugh at all
Can you describe your process for the other photos? Do you arrange special lighting, etc? They are great shots.

Cargill's German Saltzgitter pilsner malt for the 1.005 vs. Bestmalz pils for the 1.012.I bet that contributed some. I get different efficiencies from different malts. So, stands to reason there would be differences in fermentability also.
Thanks for the correction. Good to know the proper spelling. Now if I just knew how to actually say it. I have an idea, but it's probably wrong. A friend told me that the name Leos is pronounced "lee-oh-sh", is that right?
