Can I use chlorinated water with my starter?

The answer is big NO, however this does not mean you have to buy bottled spring water or use expensive water filters. The easiest way to get rid of chlorine in water is to boil it or just let it sit out uncovered 24 hrs (in a wide necked jug), provided that your water treatment plant chlorinates with free chlorine (in Australia as far as I know all tap water does), and not with the stable form of chlorine, chloroamine. This cannot be boiled or evaporated out. Or you can use easily available carbon filter system such as Brita filter jug which you can purchase from your local supermarket.
