So, A brew-club at my work recently did a brew, and while I wasn't there for it, I found out that they had some wort-cooling issues. Running to the store for more ice, etc.
Anyway, They brewed from an extract kit. I believe that at some point in the past someone told me that with extract kits, getting a fast cold-break is not as important as with all-grain kits. And even if it was bad, that shouldn't effect taste, but might make effect the beer's longevity, right?
Anyone care to comment on the imporance of a cold break for extract brewing vs. full-grain?
