Regardless, the fact remains that the style of beers that BMC fall into is a supremely difficult type of beer to make. We should all strive to become brewers of the skill level that could pull off those types of beers at that level of quality.
I agree with you completely. No derision intended.

BMC is indeed about marketing. But resources? We as homebrewers have the same resources as they do. If you have lagering equipment (a fridge with a temp controller) then you have the same resources as the big boys do. And if you can make a great batch, every time, without error, then you have the same skill as they do. The consistency you speak of takes a great amount of skill in and of itself. And that "trained testing panel" is a part of that skill. The fact that they needed training is indicative of skill. Seriously, if you think it is not all that difficult, put your money where your mouth is. Do it. Because if you have a simple lagering setup, you have all you need.
