I feel like this has definitely been asked before, but I did a site and google search and didn't come up with a lot so thought I'd ask here. Just a querie, why wouldn't you pre boil your mash water to evaporate and get rid of some nasties like chlorine and bacteria and what not, then just wait for it to decrease to strike temp? I know it could take a little longer but would it hurt the beer? or does it need some nutrients in the water or something....
