That may be a bit hyper-technical for a home brewing forum.
This hear thred is unsane. Can we not just get along...or...at least conversate?

May I use three periods in lieu of a comma?

I think I have used Insanitary to describe a Tijuana bar bathroom.

this bugs me, because it's more often than not spelled incorrectly on this forum

roselare = ?
Roeselare = a Belgian city and municipality in the Flemish province of West Flanders ... The city is also home to the Rodenbach brewery. (thx wikipedia)

if you pronounce it right, with 'roe' sounding like 'roo' in kangaroo, you won't maintain the desire to spell it wrong!

or, just read the damn wyeast pack!
YEAST STRAIN: 3763 | Roeselare Ale Blend

Also it is a vial of yeast not a "vile". Although it could be a vile vial. Sorry.

I wish I could like this more than once. I, along with many other members it seems; like things to be correctly spelled and grammar to be correct as well. Why bother asking for help or posting at all if you lack the energy it takes to hit the GD comma button or the apostrophe. Glad I'm not alone on this one.

Yes. Unless it's no.

The infomation we choose to use or ignore is the same here as in the brewing arena. This thread makes it fun for some of us. I can see where it's not everyone's cup of tea.
For me, personally, I tend to question the knowledge of someone who makes simple grammatical errors in their posts. If someone doesn't know the difference between our and are (this one really bugs me--they aren't even PRONOUNCED the same!) how can they be expected to know the difference between the proper way to do something and the improper way to do something.


For example:


Then put are yeast in the fermentation vessel.


vs


Then put our yeast in the fermentation vessel.


If people said this, one using our and the other using are, I would tend to view the one using our as more knowledgeable. Even if this is really not the case. It is strictly a perception thing.

Are you sure it isn't will-AH-mit? That sounds right to me


And remember, capitalization can be important too!

"Let's eat grandpa." is a lot more fun to say than "Lets eat, Grandpa."

Fun post to read. I LOVE how 700 people asked if an acronym page existed. Read the whole thread before you ask. I understand that some posts get up to 700 pages, but if you are asking what kind of yeast to use in apfelwein, I'm sure reading the first three pages would help. I would say redundancy of posts are far worse than the grammatical errors.

The search bar is also your friend.

This thread makes me laugh, seems like everyone on this site should know drinking causes drain bramage. For what its worth i dont think its fair to discriminate stupidity, people cant help the way they were born.
