Then I agree, bed depth is probably the problem. 

Bed depth impacts efficiency?

In fly sparging, yes.  In batch sparging, very little to not at all.

I quess my beef with this stems from the quality aspect. I love the idea of promoting homebrewing but to sacrifice quality in an effort to sustain business goes against the very principles by which we stand for.

I think you're comparing apples and oranges, Ron.  AFAIAC, the BOP is a very different creature with a different reason for being than what we do.  The people who go there _aren't_ interested in homebrewing, they're interested in making beer with a slight hands on approach.  That may eventually lead them to discover what we all have, but I don't think it's right to think of a BOP in the same terms as what we do.  And again, my experience is that the people who run BOPs are interested in quality, but for a different reason than we are.  But their customers are only interested in quality up to a point and a smart businessperson give the customer what they want.

I just tapped a keg of IPA yesterday that uses FF for both FWH and dry hopping.  I'm not a huge Citra fan, either, but I found the blend is perfectly balanced to give you that classic PNW hop flavor and aroma.

Also, when you guys carb a corney. Do you connect to the serve connector to cause the bubbles to move up thru the beer, or not. I haven't done this, but I've been reading about it being the preference at various places on the internet.

I've done it both ways and it makes absolutely no difference.

Here's a link to his test...

Are you getting the right link?  This one is about trub from kettle to fermenter, as opposed to draff from mash tun.  Unless I'm missing something...

No, you're correct.  I guess I was thinking that it included the mash, also.

You can store them on their side, bit then you'll have to deal with the yeast settling on the side of the bottle, which makes it a pain to pour.  Generally they're stored upright.

Just so happens mine is the Eugene Saturday Market, too!  Although I admit that after so many years I've kinda burned out on it and usually don't go unless I want something specific from it.  OTOH, I'm at the Farmer's Market across the street nearly every Saturday getting food and ideas.

I may have to buy the kids another joke book from Frog (it will depend on when he had his last bath)

I believe it was 1987.

It's not just clarity. I think it yields a cleaner taste. Remember, everything that goes in the kettle gets boiled as well.

Yeah, I understand.  This guy found that it still doesn't matter, which is my conclusion also.

Hey, if a couple of minutes is that important to you, than skip it and feel good. To me, it kind of gets back to that 20 minute mash time. If I'm ever that worried about a few minutes here and there, then I'll just go buy my beer.

The time doesn't bother me.  The wasted effort does.

I recall years back hearing about a guy doing a mango wit.  Always sounded good to me, although he claimed if you drank too much it had a laxative effect.

Looks cool.  We've got a few commercial brewers here so hopefully they'll weigh in.

I haven't seen any correlation between cloudy wort and cloudy beer. I have a Helles on tap right now that was very cloudy coming out of the mash tun but yet is crystal clear coming out of the keg.

What sort of effect would it have?

Oxidized beer (what you'd get if you didn't purge the O2) can taste cardboardy, kind of flat (flavor, not carbonation), maybe a bit like sherry, or have weird caramel flavors to it.
