comment Hop Analysis for Home Brewers - Interest Poll
There's one vote to close as "not a real question". I think there's obviously an implied questions here (beyond the let me know what you think bit), but I'd recommend editing this to include a specific call-to-action at the end. Maybe something along the lines of: Is anyone else interested in having their hops' IBU levels analyzed?

comment Propane v. Natural Gas
@Room3 not to mention most folks have the option of piping natural gas in. Propane generally requires either swapping out 20# tanks at the gas station of having someone fill a large on-site tank.
