Keep the criticism coming guys. I can't stand baseless conjecture, but there has to be some conjecture to draw any conclusions. I made the data available because I wanted the conjecture process to be as transparent as possible.
I tried to split up my conjecture based on my perceived level of evidence. The only thing this study shows beyond a reasonable doubt is that the fermentability was the same and the decocted beer had higher efficiency.
To me, there is clear and convincing evidence the beers were in fact different, though just looking at the BJCP scores, stated preferences, and percentage of misidentified duplicates, you could easily argue the beers were the same. While supported by the evidence, I don't think that conclusion is correct.
Other than that, there's no other conclusion I stated I'm committed to, and will gladly change my mind based upon reasonable analysis.
