I've used FF on my last couple brews. it's got the tropical fruit character of Citra, the dankness of Columbus, the tangerine of Amarillo, the lemon of Centennial...a very nice American style hop combo.

But I don't know what the other people are talking about. Chances are they haven't been to Belgium, and that they like their beer to give them headaches. High temperatures will give strong flavors. Wrong flavors, but strong. So if someone is impressed by intensity rather than character, they will likely be happy. But I'd rather get it right.
I agree, with the exception of when a piece of information comes from a credible source such as John Palmer (where the phos reference comes from). If someone sees a wild theory online there is good reason to doubt it, but when it comes from a credible source there is less of a reason for dispute.
I honestly don't know where some of these goofy ideas come from. People are going along fine, then someone says something on the internet, and all of a sudden everyone is dumping olive oil in their beer. If your processes are working for you, stop looking for evidence to change to something else. In this case, it should be pretty evident whether you accidentally dropped all the calcium out of your wort. If you don't have the signs of it, then chances are it didn't happen. Theoretical is one thing, but if you have actual empirical evidence to the contrary, just believe your own senses.
Wouldn't a conversion test with iodine tell you whether it's done in the mash or not?
to me it is just a stale taste.
If it is quick oxidation this is what I get as well. The longer it develops the more "sherry wine" like it gets. The wet cardboard is a decent analogy as well.
Out of curiosity Denny, what was the gender of the two people at the shelter he trusted? My dad had a rescue dog when I was a kid, she had clearly been abused. She had no problem with women or kids, but my dad was the only adult male she ever trusted.
Denny; I wish you luck with the dog with the mental issues. It might come down to that dreaded tough decision but you have to do what's best for your family, then your pet.
