Was there anything in the video that offered a possible answer to the original question?
No, I’m afraid not. I was hoping for a follow up question on that topic, but there wasn’t one.
If you assume that crystal malts do indeed aid in oxidation, then that could lead to a discussion about what Sierra Nevada does to mitigate oxidation, which was discussed in one of the threads on the LODO forum not long ago. The clip below is of brewmaster Scott Jennings from Sierra's Falls River, NC brewery. There's a question asked at the 1:04 mark, which I've linked below. The question was in the context of brewing light/helles lagers, but I'm thinking the answer still applies regardless.
The question of the extent to which this matters on the homebrew scale is what gets the LODO forum juiced up, so take from it what you will. Cheers.
