Would someone be able to give some insight on the difference between the hops pellets, plugs, and whole hops?

General Homebrew Discussion / Introduction
« on: December 15, 2012, 03:27:22 PM »
Hello:  I am a new AHA Member.  I am from Wisconsin.  I have only taken a Homebrew class at a local homebrew supply store.  I did purchase an English Ale starter kit and carboy; however, have not had a chance to start brewing.  The owner of the supply store indicated he would be happy to do it with me.  I had the opportunity to meet and talk with a manufacturer of brew kettles.  I am intrigued by the science of the process and mechanics of the equipment.   

My push, however, to do this is a paper that I am writing for my college composition course (I am a returning adult student).  I have chosen the subculture of homebrewing beer.  I know a gentleman who has been doing this for 35 years and makes an incredible beer.  I love a good flavored amber or darker ale.   Some of the values and beliefs I have found thus far are the challenge in the creation of a good product--quality flavor.  The competition.  Fellow homebrewers are one big family.  I am wondering if anyone would be interested in sharing their values and beliefs relative to the hobby of homebrewing beer.
