Actually, this is what I have decided to do.  One of the things I have done 
in the past is to buy carboys of water from Fizo water company in Tulsa.  
They get it from Mountain Valley Spring in Arkansas.  I called Mountain 
Valley and got a water report from them.  It is MUCH better than the 
Stillwater water.  I will only have to make slight adjustments to it to reach 
the final water characteristics I am looking for.

Oh, and the best part about going all the way to Tulsa to get this water - it 
comes in these cool reusable 5 gallon glass containers!!!!!  Kind of funny - 
you can get an empty carboy from them for $12, or a full one for $10.  Not 
bad!  Two birds with one stone!
