I disagree with pretty much everything you have posted, it comes off as arrogant at the very least.

1st off I have NEVER felt the term "homebrewer" is a derogatory title or a negative in anyway. Further I have no idea where you are getting this idea from. You say media sources but can you link more than 2 from a valid and respected media outlets?

As for wanting to change the name I think that is also incorrect. It doesn't matter where you make your must or wort but you will ferment it on your own private property and for the vast majority this will be in our homes.

As for unsanitary, I hardly think that is true either. I have a lab in my basement and often go past sanitary to sterilized. I often refer to this as my home brewery.

The comment about having access to the same ingredients as commercial breweries is also not true. I know for a FACT that I can get better hops from work than I can from any online source or LHBS. We also use yeast that you can not get as well as malts.

In the same sentence you also try to elevate your beer to the same level as a commercial brewery and that is either arrogance or ignorance. I am not saying you can not make a great beer at home but you have nearly zero repeatability and the variables that go into a batch smaller than 3bbls are far to many to control. There are some/few craft commercial breweries out there that are putting out some beer that is not that great but these places will not last long and are exceptions.

I am just fine with being a homebrewer when referring to the beverages I make out of work.

I do bake at home (breads, pies, candy, ect.), but I just refer to myself as a home cook, not a home baker. I will say that one of the simplest pleasures in life is having a nice homebrewer while enjoying a piece of home baked bread fresh from the oven.

I bake at home so I consider myself a master baker. I also like to argue at home so my wife calls me a master debater.

If one owns a bait shop, would one be considered a Master Baiter?
