Ok this one is really getting to me, i see it a lot on here talking about carbing.
Yes there is a difference between Adsorb and Absorb.

Absorption: physical or chemical phenomenon or a process in which atoms, molecules, or ions enter some bulk phase. Often times involves a chemical reaction. i.e. CO2 absorbs into beer (no chemical reaction tho thank god, thats what happens with oxygen) not on the surface of beer (however that would work). Absorption actually involves diffusion, and other complicated processes.

Adsorption: Is just the accumulation of atoms/molecules on a surface.

It drives me crazy, people will interchange these in the same paragraph.

This one almost got me. I was under the impression that Perlicks were all forward sealing till I almost bought some off Craigslist. Glad I checked out the model number before I bought.

That is not the correct pronunciation of Willamette. I live in the Willamette Valley and no one pronounces it like that. It's wi-LAM-it.

WOOL-ah-mutt sounds like a natural-made clothing line for dogs.

As native Oregonians will quickly tell you, "It's Will-AM-it, damnit!"

I've just said aloud "wil-AM-it" and "wi-LAM-it" about a dozen times each and both sound right.

Maybe I need to carry around a tape recorder, pre-plan a situation where I'll say Willamette a few times, forget about the plan and go about my day, then replay the tape.

For what it's worth dictionary.com says wi-LAM-it, so that's why I wrote it that way.

Sorry, I was mistaken. It's will-AM-it - dammit.

Just don't prounounce it like most college football analysts. They usually prounounce it "will-a-mutt" or "wye-lam-it."

I think I even say "wuh-lam-it" from time to time (which is hardly any different and just more casual than "Will-am-it).

OK, on to brewing and more important things!!

Good post. We could add many more. However sterilize and sterilization have their place in home brewing outside of a lab environment. I sterilize my bottles in my oven sometimes, just as Palmer discusses in his book. I do agree that most uses of these terms on this forum are misuses where sanitize and sanitization are in order.

Maybe everyone is so excited about their beer that they don't proofread?
