I am on your side.

We should always answer the question first, then we may make recommendations and explain why.

One of this days I need to ask a question too and I am sure I will receive a lot of questions without answers.


Cheers,

Heh. I expected a flood of these - in this thread, that's funny.

Just go ahead and get it out of your system here, and the next time somebody has troble with a capper/bottling wand/dip tube/etc, try to resist the urge.

Another issue with this forum "You should search more"

Sometimes, yes but a lot of times actually no. Certain subjects have been talked about and the information stays current but there is a lot of subjects that continue to change and searching these forums does not solve the problem or answer the question. If all your going to say is "Search harder" gtfo and don't respond. kthx

If nothing else, this applies to the beginner forum.

Kegging isn't about being elite, it's about being evolved.
It is the all grain to bottling's extract.

Ignoring the question of how valid your assertation is, I don't see the threads where all grain guys jump into extract threads and give advice like "if you'd go to all grain, you wouldn't have that problem."

Maybe that's because AG is more complicated, I dunno.

I have no problem with you encouraging kegging, but the original point of this thread remains valid - jumping into a thread where someone is wanting bottling help with "kegging fixes that problem" is jerkface behavior. It doesn't make you look cool, smart, or evolved. It does, however, make you look like an ass.

Bottling is awesome. Easy to share, cheap etc. etc...plus, I just like the process. I usually have a friend or two who don't mind helping since I offer some homebrew while we do it. Put on some music, have a good time, bottle with your friends. I've done it alone as well, and while it can be a little stressful the first time, it gets easier.

Plus, some beers just really have to be bottle conditioned in my opinion. Saison, Biere de Garde, etc. Although some people will probably disagree with me on that one...
