The days of blue ribbon malt hopped extract are long past for me and all modern brewers.
Homebrewers? NO. Artisan brewers? YES. We have access to all modern malts and yeasts and additives and adjuncts necessary to brew with the best commercial brewers. The derogatory term "homebrewer", IMO, should be put to rest. Why are those that chose to make quality bread named artisan bakers instead of homebakers? I for one am just sick and tired of the derogatory image associated with the moniker "homebrewer". We are ever so much more than that. [end rant] . Cheers, fellow artisans ..

I believe it's "Lighten up, Francis."

I'm not a huge fan of the term "homebrewer" myself but I don't get all bent out of shape about it. I often just use the term "amateur brewer."

I'm with Suds! Mofo artisan with artesian water. And my house is clean and not the least bit squalored. We even have landscaping.

see you on page 99...

but yeah, terminology: i've been making beer for the sake of decent beer at a low price lately. it's taste pleases me but is it artisanal?

on a note connected to this, i'm not necessarily into or make "craft beer" either. are pilsner urquell or fuller's porter craft beers? really doubt it and they'd be ones i'd want to be stuck on a desert island with

I prefer the term "BIAH" (Brew In A Home), because I am a huge proponent of unnecessary acronyms.
