and arrogant to think that everyone bought his book.

I just think it's unfortunate that Gordon didn't actually give an answer that those of us who don't own the book will be able to read.
I'd like to read his answer, but...
My lhbs has chosen not to carry his book (for whatever reason).
So, I haven't gotten around to paying the $18 + shipping & probably won't.

I'm hoping maybe someone will share the knowledge, without charging me a fee.

Amen Major. I had a guy ask to come over and see my Brutus system, ask questions and such as he was looking to build his own.  He tasted a couple of my beers and here are some of his comments to a tee...Ill never forget because I spent the evening I never met a homebrewer like that before. What a pompous ass.

"Clean IPA very good, but I do this in mine and its better for it"
"Youre better than 99% of the brewers I know""oh thanks man" him: "Im the 1% better though"
"Ive been brewing for 7 years I know all there is to know about brewing, hes adjusting his water for this reason, but I know all there is to know about water and I dont do it for a reason."
to his gf: "THis is the second best pumpkin beer we've had huh sweety?"....his gf turns her head and takes another sip of mine and says "yeh"

Lol comical. Funny thing was, hes over in MY HOUSE asking me questions about MY SYSTEM, making these comments. Then when he left he said, maybe we can do a collaborative batch or something. Never understood people like this, if you know all there is know, then where is the fun in doing it. Get over yourself.

Wow...Just, wow.

I don't live that far from Leos and I still haven't tried any of his beers.  Bummer!

I'm going to pass through Eau Claire on Labor Day weekend.  I think a stop is in order!

I have...You should pick some up, just across the border.
It's delicious!

Come one, guys. I don't think I have to spell it out any more than I have already. The implication seemed to be that our IIPA was not brewed to his specifications. (It's a 1.083 beer brewed primarily with 2 row, 5% sugar and 5% cara-vienne with a huge amount of centennial and columbus at WP and dry hopped with another equally large charge. At 7 bbls we use 29 lbs of hops before dry hopping. It's also one of our most sought after beers.) All I am saying is, have a little respect for the guys who have put it all out on the line. Try not to act like a "know it all". I think it is safe to say that since I am on this forum and the pro-brewer site everyday that I am not afraid to gather knowledge.

Sorry, Keith...
I misunderstood & thought you were giving examples of what "That Guy" normally might inject into the conversation...
I didn't read the text of that post to be exactly what he was saying, to your partner.

At the same time...
So, he hadn't yet tried your beer & wanted to discuss how he'd make a IIPA differently...
Is that insulting?
Even modest folks have opinions.

I understand that there are negative people, everywhere.
They come in all shapes, sizes & occupations.

Is it possible that your partner got the wrong impression?

I understand that there is always "That Guy" roaming the earth...
But, how are good ideas ever formed & exchanged, if not for conversation.
I wonder whether "That Guy" thought there was a dialogue happening between both parties, rather than the monologue that your partner may have been seeing.

Heck...I don't know what the conversation pertained to, but if I was talking with someone about running cooling lines & had a tip I thought might help their efficiency, I'd give them the tip...Would that make me "That Guy"?

You guys should see it, in person.
Knowing I'll never see it again almost brings a tear.

Denny- Do you think it's my mill, or operator error?

When I was dry-crushing the grain, I was getting lots of shredded husks. Conditioning helped, but I was still getting a fair amount of broken husks. Conditioning + double grind gives me mostly intact husks.

Why the extra work?
Were you having trouble with stuck sparges, or astringent flavor?
I condition & grind once, through a Barley Crusher set to .024".
I don't have either problem.
