I am new to brewing this year and have already been directed to your wiki in another thread.  Great information!  As a teacher is it always refreshing when people go through the work and time to share their knowledge with others free of charge.  Thanks!
Mike

Thanks guys. I meant to write this for a while. Now that I own a microscope for about 2 years I the initial excitement certainly has worn off and was also able to write about what worked and what didn't.
