An acronym is an abbreviation that makes a word. I haven't seen too many of those around here.

But as far as abbreviations, YMMV. BTW my SWMBO 86'ed my SS eBIAB MLT with PBW. It's NP because ATM I've got an AG RIS with high AA EKG and WLP002 in a 5g BB but I'm worried about HSA and DMS from a slow IWC (maybe get a CFC or PC?). But IMHO RDWHAHB! (PS: Asked the OG down at the LHBS about my FG and he said it was "A-OK for BJCP, AFAIK, with 11% ABV".) I'd link pics but the URL is a PITA.

So either start saying "pounds per square inch," "International Bitterness Units," "carbon dioxide," "brew in a bag," "parts per million," and "India Pale Ale" or risk being labeled a hypocrite.

Note, I only looked at the first page of results on your posts, if I had time to go farther I think I probably could have found more.
And he didn't even do it right, the 2 is supposed to be subscript!
