That was the main point of my response.

Maybe you should share your vast knowledge of IBUs with bobbrews.
Maybe you should read your own posts and think before shooting off your mouth. You've been brewing, what? a whole two months? I know that makes you an expert in your world, but perhaps instead of being a know-it-all, maybe you could learn something at some point.
