Default When are you considered *NOT* a newb?

I keep seeing posts that say "but I'm a newb" and their join date to the forums is like 2010 or earlier lol.

I hope I'm always a noob. After a couple of years, a good number of mistakes, and a few hundred gallons of beer brewed, I just also hope I'm a slightly knowledgeable noob. I know enough to know that I don't know nearly enough.

Hard to say. I started brewing in 1996. I still learn stuff every day. I say be open to everything and learn from any opportunity. As far as noob status, I think it's a slang term that doesn't have a ton of meaning these days.

You're a newb until you no longer act like it. I just pitched my stir bar, so I'm out for now.

Unless this is you .... your still a newb. Course, I bet they still think they are still rookies since they are learning something new everyday.

I've been brewing since 93' and I'm still learning all the time. I'm a happy little noob.

I'm always a noob at something in brewing. I know that even if I have a lot of experience that I will never know it all. Once I get comfortable with something, I learn something new.

I'm still learning a lot about water and mash chemistry, for example, although I'm pretty comfortable with the brewing basics.

Join date doesn't mean much, I started brewing in the 90's and only this year would not consider myself a newb. My definition would be: Someone who can make a batch of beer taste exactly the same way, anytime that they want.

I would rather have some one self profess their noobness, then think they know everything and post information that is obviously incorrect.
