Because it alows for more frequent brewing, more variety, less equipment, less space, and all that good stuff...
until you crack open a bottle of something that is outstanding and realize you only have about a case...
I've had a few of my hefeweissens over the last few days (it's Edwort's Bavarian Hefe recipe) and they are amazing.........so good even my girlfriend likes them. I'm hooked these are definatly better than any commercial example I've had (which albiet is of few variaties but mass quantities of those few)
I was thinking of brewing the Blue Moon clone here shortly too but I'm plum out of bottles and I've got two secondaries full, and a primary of Ed's Apfelwien
I think I'm going to have to go on a brewing hiatus and start binge drinking for awhile just to make some room! That way I can brew a bigger batch of this hefe!
Take it easy
PS: It's 2:22am....I have a chem test in 8hrs 38min.....need to stop "making room" and get some sleep!
