And THEN you hit them with a negative Igor experiment!

I told my local homebrew shop owner about Brewtan B and that Denny said it should be available for whole sale around the first of the year. I hope you're right Denny! I really want the homebrew shop to get it in stock.
When I mentioned brewtan to the owner of one of my local shops, she laughed and said, "That's ridiculous!" or something to that effect.  The introduction of brewtan seems to bring out some unusual responses from most brewers... mostly in the form of complete rejection.  :D

Thankfully, no.

Thankfully, no.
After much skepticism, it was accepted.

I don't feel the skepticism was towards the method more so towards his staunch hatred of stir plates.

That's how I felt, too. I mean, I knew that some variation of 'SNS' worked because when I started making starters, it was Charlie P style back in the day -  a quart starter in a gallon jug that I shook the crap out of initially. I think Charlie mentioned letting it ferment out, then decanting . Maybe not. But often, from not making the starter soon enough by Charlie's method, I pitched at high krausen and it worked great. But regardless, I made tons of good beer with a stir plate afterward, too.

You catch more flies with honey.

Between having zero free time and the low oxygen paradigm which doesn't allow for letting wort sit overnight (which otherwise would allow me to make a starter while brewing to pitch the following morning), I've pretty much stopped making starters altogether.

A quick question: How important do you think the mash addition is?

I brewed an IPA last Sunday and just did the boil addition.  My thinking was that it will help, but the beer won't be aged so why use double the amount?

Having not left out the mash addition, I can't say from experience.  But if Joe says to do it, I'd do it.  He's the expert.

Is Joe a salesman? Or a chemist/engineer there?

Both.  And if you're implying a lack of integrity if he's a salesman, I guess you know Joe.
