Distilled water would have been my first thought as well.

Probably not! The idea of boiling and cooling a couple times is to force the air out of solution in the water. Distilled water may not have any minerals or bacteria in it but it does have air dissolved in it. Every time you shake that bottle, some of that air at the top is dissolving in the water.

I posted a reply to this but I guess I didn't submit it.

No, distilled water should be boiled and cooled, also. There are no minerals or bacteria in distilled water, but there is dissolved air. Every time you shake that bottle, some of the air around the top dissolves into the water.
