Manganese in Well Water

Post by SwollenGoat23 » Thu Feb 11, 2021 2:10 pm

I'd much rather use our well water for mashes and washes but after testing we found we have an Extremely high amount of this manganese in our water. We cannot drink it and after a $3500 filtering system, we still can't get it out.
But because it would be distilled, would it be OK? I don't understand the info I find on wiki. Would it put off a gas or infuse something in the distillate.
If you guys could shed some light on this iron like mineral (Mn) I would appreciate it.
For those who know, I'm still not sure if I can get back to distilling or not but as this is my passion, I have to at least read and/or entertain the idea.
Thanks
