Suggested Introduction 1:

Lauren Krogman, Assistant Manager of Marketing and Processing Technology for the Council, joins us to explain how ginners can avoid this all together and shares some important reminders from AMS.
Suggested Introduction 2:
Krogman has a few recommendations if you do find a mismatch at your gin.
Suggested Introduction 3:
