It's disappointing to see people tout the conclusions of a single experiment as conclusive, universal facts that have settled all questions about a particular issue but I am seeing that with increasing frequency across the internets.
Yeah, I think a lot of people look to things "scientifical" in nature for their certainties and to reinforce what they already believe is true. Plus a lot of lay people have been trained to react this way by breathless media reports about the current likelihood that eggs will kill you.
One of the things I like about what we're doing is we've built into the setup the notion of a repeated trial. It's imperfect, what with the lack of precision inherent to homebrewers, but the results are only part of the reason to do these things. The discussion is the fun part and the thinking scientifically is good for the brain.
Plus, we do try to encourage people to take the results with a notion towards figuring out if they agree and if they see the same thing.
