Well, you pitched a tiny little starter, relative to the beer. That wouldn't even be enough for 5 gallons. So that might have resulted in excessive esters.

I see lots of Chloride-Sulfate imbalances in these reports.
As silly as this discussion is, it actually has merit. I am a little puzzled by the pirate connection to GW, but I've heard crazier ideas.
Are you implying that global warming was caused by dinosaurs?
Does that mean I can brew low SRM beers as it is, and would have to adjust to brew something like an Imperial Stout?
Am I batch sparging correctly, and am I moving in the right direction?
Not if I'm drinking directly from the container. Aluminum, lined or not, still has a metallic taste.
Two of the same beers, at the same price, on the shelf, I'm going with bottles. I'm looking for the best taste. I'm not buying good beer to save the earth.
As for the maltster, when it comes to their efficiency they are actually interested in letting the barley germinate as little as possible since the growth of the embryo consumes starch. The skill of the maltster is being able to let it germinate just long enough to satisfy the modification demands of the customer.
I don't enter comps, but if I gave up good beer and money to do so, I'd expect constructive criticism, rather than sharp wit.
