I guess I'm a slower learner than most, though, if I'm reading this right.
My old boss who taught me everything I know about restaurants had a wonderful theory on this. I can't share it because it involved my employees. But basically it involved collective learning.

To gerneralize this theory: As the HBT brewing group progresses in knowledge, you find that you learn more and more. As you reach a knowledgable position, you help other brewers reach your level. But the brewers equal to your knowledge continue to push each other to new heights, collectively pushing the knowledge of the group higher and higher.

That's how some of us n00bs can answer the "silly repetitive questions" while keeping the more knowledgable brewers focussing on whatever makes you guys good brewers.
