Patient :Hi. I am a homebrewer. I made a five gallon batch of beer using my garden hose through a carbon filter. I did not flush out the standing water before boiling it. The water had been standing in the hose about one week. I later read that standing hose water can contain lead and other chemicals. Should I dump my batch or will this one time be OK? I have since upgraded to a water safe hose. Thanks.
