    I like to trust John Palmer. I like Jamil's explanation best. You might get a 30-40 point beer
    with no water modification. Water modification is what will push you up into the mid to high
    40's. Especi...

    jdc, you continuously underestimate other brewers in a condescending manner. Your stance seemed
    to suggest that brewers are too dumb to understand water chemistry, so they should blame their
    own incom...

    jdc2,Have you brewed many light beers and dark beers using adjusted water and unadjusted water
    and blind taste-tested them? Your arguments, so far, have been agreeable to zero brewers who
    have posted ...

    Then they are the problem. Listen up trolldoll, lag times are no different for dry compared to
    liquid yeast. As a matter of fact, my dry yeast often takes off faster than does a liquid with

    using proper ...

    cleantasting light beer...
