Default I have not sanitized any thing for the last 4 months!!!

And have been using the same yeast cake over and over for 4 times now!!! (in a plastic bucket. beer out, other one, in)
All just equipment just washed with soap and water.

No infection, just good beer

thoughts?

Another one of these threads. How about you send your beer to a BJCP competition and post independent comments on your beer.

At the least I'd say you've been lucky. You toss another wort on the yeast cake,crud ring & all?!

Sounds like an open invitation to an infection but you've been lucky so far. Most dish soap is antibacterial though so that helps.

Agree - get some objective feedback. Sounds likely also grossly over pitching for most beer. Your makin beer, but it could be better.

If your happy with the results though - proceed.

My thoughts exactly. I thought my beer was great when I first started brewing... turns out was quite naive.

If the guy says it works, I take him at his word. I certainly can't taste any off flavors from here! But I agree that he's lucky, and I'll keep sanitizing.

So, we're to rely on other people to tell us whether our beer tastes good to us?

Are we making beer to drink or impress others?

You needed someone else to tell you your beer wasn't good when you thought it was?

Do you need a weather man to tell you it's raining too?

I don't mean to be argumentative, but if you like your beer, then who gives a crap what someone else thinks? "Good" is subjective.

If you're brewing to win competitions and your objective is to stay in style and all that, then yeah ask someone else if your beer is good or at least what it is supposed to be.

But if you brew beer to drink and enjoy it (imagine that) then your opinion and your opinion alone is what matters.

Is the OP asking for infections and all sorts of issues doing what he's doing? Oh yeah. but if he's happy with what he makes, then who cares.
