>I would cut up a lemon and put a wedge into the water bottle and leave it
there. by the end of the week, the wedge was pretty tuckered out, but it
did add just a little flavor and make it easier for me to drink the water.
>I am looking for some other home brew alternatives to this problem, trying

Hey, what archery!!!! I was just reading a description in a Mountain Man
type catalogue that sold Peppermint essence in a small vial....the
description said that it was often used to "freshen" the water in barrels
and casks. I got some from my local grocery store pharmacy....works like a
champ and takes only a toothpick dipped in it to "freshen" a waterbottle
full. There are also LOTS of other "oils" and "essences"
available....lemon, to be sure. And the vial is only about and inch and a
half by 1/2 inch square! Shoot you could have a regular drug store soda
fountain on the trail!
