Does KC have many brewpubs? Seems like theye lag a bit in this respect, but I really haven't researched this lately. St Louis has gone crazy with brewpubs.

My original question stemmed from seeing posts where people were saying wort concentration/gravity has no impact on hop utilization so there is no need to adjust your hopping rate if you're doing a concentrated boil and/or a higher gravity beer.Understood, but I'm not sure theres ever been any direct evidence that it was the sugar content either, and I've certianly never heard a molecular mechanism behind it. there just the correlation, and it could be sugar or break or something we havne't yet thought about.
That's a very different statement from saying that the impact on hop utilization comes from the increased break material and not the sugar content of a concentrated wort. For all practical purposes, it's immaterial if the impact comes from sugars or break material as long as we know that utilization is decreased.
