To me it's more about comparing early tastes to how things usually taste at that point so that if things go wrong you can better identify the source of the problem or potentially even correct them before it's too late. Also, the more you do it the more you can identify what earlier steps should taste like given your final goal.Homercidal said:I don't think I could evaluate the beer until the yeast have had a chance to do their thing.
