  • Holy ^*$&..my bio was way outta date... I brewed by first batch in 1994 and brewed reasonably regularly for a few years. I got out of it due to life (married, buying a house, etc.) and then got super serious back into it about 8-9 years ago. Went way off the deep end, ended up with a 45 gallon single tier herms system in my garage, member of the local homebrew club, and then... in January of 2012, I was one of those stupid enough to actually open a commercial brewery. The money sucks and it won't get you chics... but at least the hours are long! Nah... it's been a freakin blast every step of the way.

    As I'm typing and thinking about it... maybe that's the question... can you have a beautifully
    made beer that is "bad"?I think I would argue "no". If it is made perfectly, then I would argue
    that "you...

    yes but you can't have it both ways.either you're asking for what aj describes, a strict set of
    criteria which beer is to be measured, or you're asking people for their feelings..I
    disagree... Only be...

    But a brewer could modify their stated 'intent' after the beer is actually brewed, similar to
    how a homebrewer could submit a 'bad' IPA (original intent) into the BJCP American Amber
    category (actual ...

    Seriously? Pick your imperfect poison: GABF, World Beer Cup, BJCP, CAMRAAgain... that's why I
    continuously go back to brewer's intent. I don't think it is a perfect solution by any stretch
    but I don't...

  • Posted in thread: What does "good beer" mean? on 02-09-2016 at 09:29 PM
    Not really. Taste is subjective. BJCP judges get together and skew their own personal results
    in order to come to a more common score. Lots of people have told me that Bell's Hopslam is one
    of the bes...

    It very certainly is if popularity is the criterion of optimality and that seems like a very
    acceptable criterion to me. It's certainly as valid as some of the others.The guy who says beer
    A is better...

    Sure. Obviously there's no denying that the BJCP is a fairly matured organization and a
    moderately successful attempt at some sort of standardization.But to say:"I should also stress
    that I'm mostly t...

    Of course. Because there are people that wish to define and divide an industry they have no
    qualifications in. I still stick with my definition: I'm looking to sell someone the second
    beer. That's how...

    De gustibus non est disputandumAnd actually... I agree 1,000%... when it is presented as a
    matter of taste. But that's not how any of what I'm talking about works. It is, 99% of the
    time, presented as...

    Is the concern about what he didn't understand? Or that others might believe him?The concern
    was that he was coming up with completely arbitrary views on a beer and publishing them as
    fact... somethin...
