comment No-rinse acid sanitizer - is there a risk?
Coming from a chemistry background - I like rinsing, too. However, I've been using the foam and not "fearing it" for about 6 months now and my beer tastes great. I also reuse the solution for bottles so it's actually quite cost-effective.

No Way! I think Simcoe is yummy - I dry hop with it all the time. Some people don't like it; I never smell cat pee, to be honest. I do agree with dropping the sugar for DME.
