    Got my first cast iron pans

    I wish I had hit this thread sooner. Sadly, people refuse to let go of old ways. I know I'm tilting at windmills, but the modern Lodge cast iron really does not need an initial seasoning.

    Against hoppy beer

    What I found interesting was where the author explain that above certain level of hops, the drinker cannot taste the difference if more hops are added. Too much of a great thing.
