“We’ve had the same amount of water on our planet since the beginning of time, ” Susan Leal, co-author of Running Out of Water, told GritTV’s Laura Flanders. “We are on a collision course of a very finite supply and 7.6 billion people.”
Very very little of anything but water.
What's in my water?
Hopefully, some barley malt, hops and yeast.
FYI drinking pure water is actually bad for you- with no minerals in your water your cells have difficulty managing how much water they absorb and can overabsorb and bloat/burst.
They do exist in reliable amounts, actually. As I mentioned, water chemistry makes a big difference in how beer turns out- a little more chlorides in your beer, and your water suddenly is much better at making malty, English style ales as your perception of the malt is affected by the chlroide/sulphate ratio. However this is moot because I highly doubt that a one micron filter will be able to remove all of the salts from your water anyway.
