Hey Andy. First off, I love your videos. I've been homebrewing for about a year, and have maybe a dozen batches under my belt. I've recently switched from extract to all-grain brewing, and overall I'm happy with the results.
But you look like you're quite a bit more experienced than me, so I was hoping you could help me with a problem I've been having.
Anyway, I always hit my mash temperatures just right, and my starting gravity is usually very close to where I would expect it to be. I pay close attention to sanitation, and none of my beers have ever shown any sign of infection.
I seem to be doing everything right, bit I keep getting frustrated about one problem, especially when I see all the progress my homebrewer friends have made.
@friarmark: Thanks for this. I'm no expert, but I've noticed that in any discussion about the minimum wage, it's often taken as gospel that increasing it will cost tons of jobs and raise consumer prices enough to cancel out the wage increase.
But that assertion is often made without much evidence, maybe because it makes intuitive sense.
