This does not mean interested brewers should not give this technique a try.
That's how I formed my opinion, and I totally agree with you, Kai.

I still don't really understand the point of this "style", just coloring an IPA (india PALE ale, right?) with almost flavorless dark malts. Same beer, different color...I just don't understand.
Thats opposite of what is supposed to happen with open fermentation, it is supposed to result in more esters. I guess the question is, more than what?
It was definitely and interesting watch. There was one thing mentioned that I saw a problem with. There was a statement that the CO2 holds a cloud about the wort not allowing anything to get into it. Well, what about the first 4-6 hours when there is not activity? It's not as if you pitch and magically CO2 starts. Is there something (like a cheese cloth) placed on top during this time period?
I have found the best way to avoid breaking my hydrometer, is to have a spare one available.
Ever since I broke mine and bought two, one as a spare, I have not broken one since!
