It has been implied a thread could be removed. I personally would like to be able to reference this at times in the future. I understand the different points of view posted here and the debate and once again; thank you.
Interesting thread, sfish! There are lots of threads on starters here on the forums for you to read through and I personally learned a lot reading Yeast by Chris White and Jamil Zanisheff (spelling?) - well worth the time.
And we've all learned that while most of the posters here think that paying attention to pitching rate is one of the most important things a homebrewer can do when s/he's ready to advance beyond beginner brewing status, some do not.
For those who participated in this thread, the next time you come upon a disagreement like this, I would urge you to make your point and then move on. Don't make it personal (the best way to do that is to not even address another member, just the issue). Some folks who are not able to be civil in these sorts of threads are now former members of HBT, but I hate to see that happen unnecessarily.
Because the OP's questions have been addressed and to remove the temptation to keep the back and forth argument going, I'm closing the thread but leaving it up for anyone to see.
