Adding spices or fruit or oak? Why try so hard? Try making a beer.... then a better beer recipe... then make a recipe. Then do something special......

Why do you care? People told me i shouldn't jump to all grain without doing extract. I disregarded them and i'm glad i did.

Honestly I think a lot of people first get into this hobby specifically to try their hand at crazy beers. I definitely do see a fair amount of "First recipe help - vanilla mocha coconut porter" threads. I never went through that phase, but then again, I mostly enjoy simple, classic beers.

Don't get me wrong I am all about all grain brewing and new people but why make It hard? Did you start doing multiplication when you learned math? No ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION.

So the rule is 3 beers then you can go crazy? I thought it was 4 and then you get to add anything. I think we need to call in a brewing rules judge............

I'm not sure a dude with 16 posts should be throwing around the word "noobs" anymore than a guy with 216 posts. Probably should wait until you have 3000 before you start calling people out.

If new homebrewers wanna throw fruit and wood in their first beer, let 'em....

If that's what people want to do, big deal. They're excited about making something uniquely their own.

While I certainly agree that calling people out for being "noobs" is pretty lame, post count should only mean something in regards to ripping the forum. After all, who says the person joined the forum when they first started brewing? I didn't join until I switched to AG, almost 4 years after I started brewing. I definitely wasn't an expert, but at post #1, I was no "noob" to brewing.

Just because I recently fount HBT does not make me new at brewing.

I am just saying that when I started that my goal was to put the cart in front of the horse.
