As long as it's done in a relatively scientific manner and not the "our one try did/didn't work therefore the myth is true/false" methodology that those clowns on TV use.

If there hasn't already been an article on ranching multiple yeast strains.

If you don't get in over your head, how are you ever going to know how tall you are.

+1 Historical beer styles

I would like to see more innovative ideas on pre and post boil hopping. homemade hop backs, dryhopping in the keg, and different ways to dry hop using water filters, etc.

I can never get enough info on yeast - culturing, making starters, DIY projects for yeast ranching/handling, new strain characteristics, keeping a "house culture" healthy (of "bugs" or of brewers yeast)

I'd kind of like to see a brew day with Charlie P.
I'm just curious about how he does things, and what sort of equipment he uses.

Or it could be a 'Ask the Expert' myth debunking type article. Get well-respected brewers to weigh in on myths - no testing needed - or rather - the testing has already been done over hundreds of batches.

1.  Myth busting segments.

That would be cool. There is soooooooooo much conflicting information available that is either bad or just confusing.

As long as it's done in a relatively scientific manner and not the "our one try did/didn't work therefore the myth is true/false" methodology that those clowns on TV use.
I'd love to see a segment on shooting beer cans through walls.  ;D

You would need X-ray eyes to be able to that.

I *really* like the urban-brewer article in the current issue, and plan to try that 3-gallon Belgian, perhaps with local lavender. I'd like to see more articles about managing in tight spaces and easing the physical process. I also like the equipment articles, even when I'm not going to do those projects.
