Maybe the fact that newer, better information contradicts old habits is exactly why it should not be segregated into its own sub forum. Otherwise the function of the whole forum as a place to exchange information and improve our brewing is compromised.
I feel LODO methods are imperative (for me, that is) for my lagers, what I primarily enjoy and brew. For some styles it initially feels inappropriate, like where it's anachronistic: a low oxygen 19th century Burton Ale would be a very different beer from the original. But it might be a beer I like better, who knows? Same with a pre-prohibition style lager maybe. Will I try the methods on such beers? Time will tell. It's another tool in the box, and we're all just learning what an impact it can have, and where it may be profitably applied.
More I think about it, these ideas probably belong in the general discussion.
