So, I am new to the barrel club and planning to hydrate and use my first barrel soon. My city water contains chloramine, and I have read a bit about "cork taint" concerns with commercial wineries, which leads them to use filtration on their water lines. For those of you with chlorinated water, how do you hydrate/clean your barrels? I know that K-meta can be used to eliminate the chlorine and chloramine. Thus, my plan was to use hot water from the tap (garden hose attached to my water heater) added to a tiny amount of K-meta (only 4 ppm required from what I've read). Thoughts? I know that some people use water filters with garden hoses, but I haven't found one that is rated for hot water use. Or perhaps I should just use cold water with the filter?
