I agree with the common thought of "you can always learn more/you are never done improving" - But, if I had to identify the hallmark of what I think an "advanced" brewer is -

CONSISTENCY. When you get to the point that you can nail a recipe time after time after time and turn out the same great product, when you can brew a beer and KNOW which variable you need to alter next time to get the beer you want, and then do it ...... To me, if you can do those things - you are an advanced brewer. Not to say that you can't get better, but you have reached the point where you are better than the vast majority.
This is my goal..... If/when I attain it, I will feel comfortable with the "label" of advanced.

To me, an advanced brewer is the person that realizes that if it wasn't for the Great Magnet giving them the ability, health and strength to make beer. They'd be nothing.

Consistency is definitely a goal.

"Experienced" instead of "advanced." That is a good reframe.

Na. Someone could have 20 years experience brewing with Mr Beer pre hopped kits.

(pc edit: not that there's anything wrong with that)


My old boss had an expression about some of the people coming in looking for jobs, "20 years experience, one day at a time."

I try not to make claims about being an "advanced" homebrewer...

...but I've fed a LOT of yeast in my day!
