Not yet, but when some one does... I'd like to say I'll be laying in wait, but in reality I'll have moved on with my life and been brewing new batches, all with short names. I'm going to start with "A IPA."

Hah close one! I was going one step beyond that and just using the letter A; one letter per brew. But I can immediately see a flaw in my logic: this limits me to making 26 types of beer. Totally unacceptable, IMO. :-P

Oh well, time to return to RDWHAHB-ing :rock:

I'm not on a soapbox and no, this doesn't count as that rant.

If you're gonna hate on acronyms, people--OP included--should make sure their written English is impeccable.
Oh eff!! Don't forget "loose/lose" as in "Why do I loose almost a gallon to trub???"

Which would be old english (or pirate talk in the vernacular) for "Why do I intentionally LOSE almost a gallon to trub???"
