I brew with real grain and real hops. None of
this ‘just add water’ stuff. I’ve never done it, and I
won’t. I suppose it’s fine if you just want a ‘quick
and dirty’ beer. However, I have an overwhelming
feeling that my integrity as a brewer would be sacrificed
for ‘ease’ (I call it ‘laziness’), and it doesn’t
sit well with me. I want honest beer. I want to
know how the wort was produced, and where it
came from. Indeed, I want to be intimately associated
with the very essence of the finished product.
For better, or for worse....
