Are men and women really different? The process is essentially identical
and therefore as an overall class they belong together, or do they? While
the distinction is merely a fraction of a chromosome, it is the
distinction, not the similarities, that is most interesting. Sure, all
brewing has its similarities, but what makes for excellent mead vs wine vs
beer is fully grasping what makes each unique.
