Subject: Crystal malt and hop skimming.

Hello all,

I have noticed several references to different kinds of Crystal
Malt. I have only seen plain 'ole crystal. What's the difference
in all the 'flavors' ?

Secondly, I tried using hop pellets in my last batch for the
first time. As the green slimy foam came to the top of my
brew kettle, i skimmed it off. Was this bad? I used 2oz
for boiling and 1/2 oz for finishing. My beer has a slight
hoppy flavor. Would leaving the scum to boil increased

Thanks a bunch,
