yeah I know old issue.


I read through this. It sounds like it is not a good idea.

Point is ... I think I am getting some off flavors with my cascade.
I brewed a basic pale with all cascade (the hops in question) to see if I still got the flavor. I think It is a little off. Difficult to explain it.

Anyway.. thoughts?
