The best thing to do with the well water is to send off samples for testing for each season. Don't remember who does it- think they are called Wards. This way one will know the mineral makeup of their water and then can plug the info into bru'n water or palmer's spreadsheet.

Or just brew with it and see what happens...

If you like the taste of your water, you'll probably like the taste of the resulting beer.

IMO that may be fine in theory but in practice not so much.
The first principle is that you must not fool yourself, and you are the easiest person to fool. -Richard P. Feynman
