When I first started brewing, I was very careful not to stir the sediment,
etc. Over time, I have gotten to the point where I don't worry (while I'm
relaxing with a homebrew ;-) about getting some sediment in my glass. I
usually don't pour the thickest part of the sediment, but I don't really
mind it. You might want to read some of the previous newsletters. About
two months ago, there was a discussion about fining agents and techniques
for reducing sediment. I used some of these ideas on a light beer that I
made and they worked well (the techniques, I mean).

Regarding an index to Papazian's book, if anyone knows about this, could
they either send me a pointer to the source or a copy?

Also, while I'm at it, a cup of sugar for 3 gallons seems excessive to me.
