Thanks for the discussion, everybody. As always, the answer seems to be, if it smells like beer and it tastes like beer (this does), then it must be beer!

I'm glad to have learned about the yeast islands, too.

Things that do affect your beer:
Good procedures and recipes
Good sanitation
Proper water treatment
aging your beer properly
Enjoy with friends

Brew on brother
You just got a thumbs up. Partly for your 90% efficiency quote, partly for your avatar.

Brew on Brother, indeed. You're my kind of people.

But, let's wait to see what the pros have to say.
