Everyone in here is a newbie (2 months for me), and we are all seeing the same stuff, and approximately the same time, and we are all learning from each other, as well as from the experienced hands in here who help us all out.
My bet is that we all tend to learn things in approximately the same sequence, too.
And we've all asked the same questions (like, "Did I ruin my beer?").
So, let's share.
What did you learn this week?
I learned two things this week.
1. I learned to divide up the DME, and add some at the beginning and some at the end, made a huge difference to the color, and the flavor and texture of the wort.
2. The really big thing I learned is how to use IBU's (rather than weight) for the hops additions. Huge difference when you can look at the package of hops, and KNOW how to adjust on the fly to achieve the result you want.
So, how about you
