Also, anyone who follows my posts know my biggest recipe pet peeve is when people call their beer something like a hefeweizen even through it doesn't have enough or any wheat and doesn't use noble hops, or a kolsch when it isn't made with kolsch yeast, or a lager when they ferment it at ale temps.

I hate the "i can call it anything i want" arguements i get into with these guys. It's like me calling my apa an imperial flemish cream stout. Can i call it that? I guess...first amendment rights and all. Is it that? No! There are definitions and standards for a reason!
