Well, "better" is completely subjective, at least so far as any individual consumer is concerned. Is the brew you get from your personal recipe "better" than most commercial examples of whatever style it is? I dunno. I'm sure you think so. And that's all that matters. This dork-waving "my homebrew is better than commecial brew" is stupid. Of course everyone thinks their own homebrew is absolutely the most awesomest stuff ever freaking created. And their kids are all the smartest and most talented as well.Commercial beer is "better" only in that it is of consistent quality. Homebrews are more variable even with the same recipe because not all aspects of the process can be controlled precisely. That said, no commercial brewer can brew beer as good as my favorite recipe because as far as I know, no commercial brewer makes it.
Except me. My kids are obnoxious and my beer tastes like ass most of the time. I guess I'm in the minority here.
