Don't we hate it all when Denny's experiences don't line up with the theory
I know I do...then I've got to figure out what's wrong with the damn theory!
Seriously, though, even though I post experiences that differ from theory I try to encourage people to try things and decide for themselves. In the case of adding sugar to the fermenter, the few times I tried it in a standardized recipe I really didn't see different results than adding it to the kettle. But I'm always ready to admit that I screwed something up, so I'll try it again. Just like decoctions...just becasue I haven't found much if any difference by doing them, I still do decoctions sometimes just to see if I missed something.
