i completly agree, just took interest in the analogy. i actually agree with him, i dump beers i don't like because i didn't get into homebrewing to drink beer that is sorta ok.
but for beginners, in order to learn how the flavors change over time, even with an infection, i like the idea of buying 20 bucks in extra bottles and letting those sit for 6 months.
and some infections, especially in cider, can really become awesome with age, as long as we are speaking in truisms.
but if you dump every batch that doesn't taste perfect out of the gate, how will you ever learn? not speaking to the OP, but to the point in general for folks who have not picked up on this stuff yet.
