I got a kick out of what the stats say at the end of the article. Most homebrewers brew hop forward American ales with untreated tap water, yet they know that the key to better beer is proper water treatment. They dont know anything about hot side aeration, DMS, FMH, or decoction. They think wirlflock is a clarity cure all. AND... they think this forum is the worst.
Ya, why would you want to use this forum? You make hoppy ales and know they'd be way better if you did water additions, and guys like Martin are right here ready and willing to walk you through it. But... Naaaaw, that forum sucks.
