I'll say this one time and one time only. Please don't get too excited and don't let this turn into yet another derail.
I think the trouble with LODO is, it's not the standard yet, and barely any people know about it yet -- probably way less than 5% of all homebrewers know anything about it, so every single time that it's brought up, the next question is, "what's LODO?" and we have to go into more detail, yadda yadda, so just by bringing it up at all can turn the whole dang thread into yet another derail. Maybe one day far in the future, the process will become more well known and understood, and maybe forums like these are the best way to get the information out there, and that's fine, I have no problem with that. But I can see this both ways. From one side, LODO proponents see this method as the answer to a LOT of problems, and have been extremely vocal about it, while on the flip side, others see these terms and references as constant reminders of something they don't agree with, don't know anything about, or just are unwilling to accept (yet). Personally I'm undecided as to the merits at this point but if I had to lean one way, I'm honestly growing more and more tired of constantly hearing of how it can cure-all. Right or wrong, that's the impression I have and the taste in my mouth at this point in time.
But anyway, we digress, significantly.......
My apologies to all those who will get excited by this response. My advice: Please DON'T get excited. After all, I'm truly just another idiot from the interwebs. I have opinions, and so do you, so let's just feel free to put out our opinions with no fear of retribution, and respect each other. I promise, I truly promise, that I am actively trying harder to do the same.
Cheers all. Relax. Have a homebrew.
