Malted barley has "MSG" in it as glutamic acid. You're against beer then.

But MSG isnt bad for you, just the salt monopolys claiming it was addictive etc in the 80's and that stuck

but yeah, if for some other reason you are against it check out that list and cut out 90% of the food you enjoy the most, including alot of homebrew.
i've read enough about MSG to avoid it, not to mention feeling the effects...and i probably don't eat 90% of what most people "enjoy"

I seek out MSG. If it has it, I buy it. You know why? It makes food taste awesome, and the downsides were nothing but propaganda. Unless you're allergic, MSG is frickin' awesome.



Heck, I might start intentionally adding it to my homebrew. Might win some competitions!

While I 100% agree that the hysteria over MSG is largely unfounded, it is technically an excitotoxin and probably should be avoided IN EXCESS, just like anything else bad for you.

My father gets real bad rashes on his legs from MSG. it seems to only happen when he eats (or drinks) something with MSG. it makes his eczema act up.
