"Chewing the fat" maybe?

I was just thinking the other day about how friendly HBT is in this regard. On most other boards I've seen, especially those dedicated to a narrow endeavor, the regulars are pretty surly. If you ask a question that you could answer yourself with a quick search, you will get flamed mercilessly.

Here, by contrast, there are at least dozens of regulars who answer the same questions day in and day out, even though almost every answer is right here for everyone to find. Seriously - original, useful threads are rare.

HBT could be a "good ol' boys" sort of place where seasoned brewers congratulate themselves and make fun of newbies. But it's not. It is quite welcoming and tolerant. That's why I contribute money when I could get all the info I could ever need without paying a cent.

Anyway, take that however you will, and good brewing.

I agree with PVH. This forum is one of the most civilized forums on the internet. I cannot believe just how patient and helpful some of the regular posters are about answering the same questions over and over.

I am a noob and I do spend a lot of time searching for the answers to questions I have and it seems that the same regulars are always the ones answering them. They are so helpful I cannot believe it. I have learned a ton in just the short time I have been here and I know that I have a ton more to learn.

Thanks to the regulars of HBT..

I agree that everyone is very helpful! I am also very thankful to have found such a website. I have just started brewing and the few questions/problems I have had the responses have been great. Im sure the second fermentation question is asked alot but do I have to be scolded? The few post I had read both stated different views on secondary so I just thought I would post the question to see what people thought.
Sorry if it upset or frustated people.

One thing you'll learn about this group is they're they're pretty quick to give the benefit of the doubt, accept a new member and then harass them mercilessly. If they didn't like you, they'd ignore you. Just shovel it back at 'em and you'll do fine.

And use the search.

Bottom line: See what works best for you. Do a batch using a secondary. Do a batch leaving it in the primary. Most things in brewing you learn by doing (hmmm, I think I need to copyright that).

Is it needed... No
Is it good to do... Yes

It clears up your beers and from my experience gives a crisper taste.
Now stop bitchen, drink a homebrew and use the search feature.

Not at all stupid.

You'll get good beer, too!

That's the great thing about this topic. There's really not a right or wrong way. It's more about preference. What works for one person might not work for someone else, or they might prefer to do things differently based on their need to just "be doing something". Sometimes, it's hard to just let a beer sit. lol

Beer will clear in the primary if you give it time, too. The key, when leaving it in the primary, is in how carefully you siphon, and whether or not you let it fully settle if/when you move it beforehand.
