Beer Recipes / Re: Avocado Beer

First, you need to define for yourself what you hope to get from the avocado.  How will it contribute to the beer?  Imagine what you want the finished beer to taste like...and why!

AND sometimes it's just wrong. Because you can, doesn't mean you should.

Didn't Mosher cover that in Radical Brewing. What about a brew book on How To Wright Another Brew Book, How To Be a Homebrewing Star and Cash In or How to Turn Hombrew Forum Time into Cash? Just a little fun guys.

Thanks Martin, much appreciated. The last supported version
upgrade narrowed the margin of error for my "crunchy" well water.

why are you having second thoughts? i haven't used them yet, but am planning to do so soon. have you used them and now having second thoughts or just read about them and not as excited?

You just need to brew a few batches using them and decide from there.  I'd never take the word of anyone on the internet on matters regarding taste, without trying the item in question myself. 

Someone's words may well talk you out of something you might really like, or even taint your perception..

That is true, but I also take into account where the information is coming from and use my plausibility meter on everything. I.e. it's one piece, not the whole enchilada.

I have been getting vanilla beans from for many years. They have great prices and the most plump and juicy beans I have ever used.

Great stats!

Homebrewing is alive and well.

Long live homebrewing; but, their is a difference between being alive and having a life. Years back I moved the brew frig from the garage to the basement. Then I switched the old 2 channel stereo to a home theater system. Then..... I spend a lot of time down their. On the plus side, my basement disables cell phones. Jolly good stuff.

I thought comet would/could add some complexity to my hoppy ales. I have a few house APAs
and two IPAs that I'm getting a little bored with, so I want to shake them up a bit.

Have any of you used Comet hops, what are your thoughts? I purchased a pound of 2012 whole and I'm now having second thoughts.

Allow your taste buds to guide your brewing, not a recipe; it's the craft in craft brewing.

I don't want to turn this into a "which is better" discussion, but I will say that in my case not having to use internet to access a program is a big plus.  Anything that's online only is a deal breaker for me.
