I never tasted an all grain beer, but my beers are pretty darn good. Especially, my clean out the grains drawer "**** crick ale." Is an all grain that much better tasting?

I sanitize the snot out of the kitchen, to the point where going outdoors is only about an hour longer. The beer does taste better doing AG, and the ingredients are cheaper. I still have LOTS of extract in the basement and I can brew up something decent in a shorter period of time. I brew according to how much time I have available and the weather outside. Tomorrow is an outdoor AG kinda day. There's no reason you have to be exclusively one or the other.



Due to recent economic crisis, stock market crash, budget cuts, and the rising cost of everything including taxes: "The Light at the End of The Tunnel" has been turned off.
