In other words, I was not looking for 'confirmation bias'... which is something you see quite often on message boards.

You all grain guys seem to stick together

All jokes aside... lighten up a little.

I wouldn't say anyone took offense (at least not at first). Take my first response for example. There are certain aspects of this hobby where most people talking about them are totally relying on opinion: secondaries, autolysis, glass v. plastic, etc. On those topics if you started a thread and said 'no opinions', I for one would actually agree with you. But on this topic, there's really no opinions involved. It's accepted science, science that transcends brewing. Enzymes are not unique to our hobby obviously. So when you state 'no opinions' on a topic like this one, its plainly obvious that you didn't do any reading before asking the question.

There's plenty of great brewin literature out there, some of which has been pointed out in this thread.

In this thread, I was not looking for an opinion initially.

I put a little happy face after the comment about that just so no one would get offended.

You seem to consider anything other than posting a study to be the simple voicing of an opinion. Correct me if I'm wrong, though. Perhaps you mean you're not (or weren't) interested in anecdotal evidence of what a particular mash temperature does to a mash? Even if that were the case, you could have easily just ignored any posts you deemed to be the voicing of "opinion."

I'm not going to try and understand the direction this thread has taken. It has become so diluted with bickering that any factual points are nearly moot. Either discuss step mashing/mash temperatures or stop typing.

ryno1ryno, you are one more rude/argumentative/off topic comment away from a ban.
