Do you mean wet/damp as in it could be moldy or decomposing? Or are you suggesting that pre-soaking chunks might also be a culprit to cause the bitterness? It's a newbie question, I'm just curious because almost all my life I was instructed to soak, soak, soak, and that does not seem to be the conventional wisdom.

And leftover wood? I am guilty of throwing half-burned chunks into a bucket of water and then reusing them next time. Really that bad?
