The nature of homebrewing is very comparable to one’s search for an answer to the age-old question: Why are we here? Many seem to think they have the exact answer to the question, but no one knows for sure. The answer and the question also mutate as time moves on. It’s on that note that we begin.
As a homebrewer goes down this path, we tend to find ourselves forming habits. The longer we walk down the road, the more ingrained these habits become and we grow unwilling to change or try new things. The most common of these being a fondness for a single base malt. The most common of these is 2-row, which there is nothing wrong with but there are so many more malts out there to try.
