I'm not a long-time veteran to this digest, but after half a year I know
it's good when it's above board, and it's bad when it sinks to the level
you see in this quote. Jeff, there are PEOPLE on the receiving end of
your messages, and although Jack Schmidling has dished out his share of
flames, he didn't deserve that. The rest of this issue was excellent, and
both Tony Babinec and Al Korz found a way to explain the difference
between ales and lagers (I understood it, and I'm not blind!). So next time
you get ready to flame someone like that, keep it private!

P. S. Brett Short---I tried to email you directly and failed (I may need some
internet help). I'd like to trade some of my homegrown hops for your PoR...
send me a note if you're interested.

And finally, a question...I have gotten on to the Wyeast bandwagon myself lately
but I have to wonder about the point Jack made...just what are the advantages
of liquid vs. dry yeast? I only made three batches before switching, but they
were all great tasting. I'm sure purity is the main point, but are there any
other advantages? Send me your responses and I'll post a summary.
