Though I have only been brewing for a year, I spend the whole time brewing with about three friends. All of them have been brewing for years and two of them have worked at home brew stores for at least two years.
So that's my background, I learned over the past year and continue to brew. I'm no expert, is my point but I'll spell out all my credentials.

I just wanted to say that it annoys me when the 1000+ count posters act like they are intrinsically better brewers than the rest of us. Many of them are probably quite skilled. Just dont post 20 times a day expecting everyone to worship your brewing advice.

Rant Complete.

I have a ton of posts, that makes me an expert at running my yack.

By the way, you need to sanitise your equipment better, and your hop utilisation sucks!!

I haven't noticed this phenomenon. But if you say so ...

I'm nearing 800 and still don't know squat. But I do know that that was one presumptuous and silly post.

Damn.... I was hoping for some sort of symbiotic transfer of brewing knowledge when I hit 1000.

Great, will do. Any more instructions for the long-time users of this forum, or is that it?

No way- I can run my yack way better than you can! I have 10 times more posts!

I don't think that anyone woud assume that a higher post count would equal more brewing experience. I'm sure that there are some awesome brewers out there that have 0 posts on HBT. I can't understand it, but I know that's true.

Yeah, I haven't learned a damn thing from Laughing Gnome but I sure as hell have been entertained.
