I took out most of the text, but if you're so ultra- experienced, why are you quoting "wine experts"?
My expertise is actually in wine, rather than brewing- although by now I'm up over 300 batches of beer. I'm actually more of a winemaker than a brewer but stumbled into brewing later.
We can disagree- that's the point of a forum after all, different opinions! But to ascribe a certain level of expertise to yourself and then not provide any of your own experiences as examples makes me believe that much of your opinion is theory, not experience.
By the way- a "wine expert" would NEVER start with juice. Never. They would start with grapes. Or another fruit. NEVER juice. Call any famous winery and ask them how they start with juice. They would laugh and hang up on you.
