No...Anything that can be asked as a -vs- question the answer is always the same, it's a matter of preference ONLY
. If you have those options, that means people are using both, and OBVIOUSLY quite happy with their choice, or else that option wouldn't exist....would it? We'd never hear about x, y, or z...or vendors wouldn't be selling x, y, or z, if they weren't viable, would we? There is rarely a better or best in brewing, only, "What works best for me."
