[quote=“ITsPossible”]Looks like somebody needs a hug. LOL
Even though you never have your facts straight dobe, I still respect your opinions, their valid for you even if they dont work for others. At least you can bank on that fact. Its surprising how many people get defensive when thier blather comes up against true brewing facts.
This is where folks need to calm down. In this thread in particular my kind recommendation was torn down and dismissed as a DO NOT DO IT directive for some reason as if my comments are the ones that are way off base for some reason, well guys I will stick the brewing scientists 100+ years of researched data up against any anecdotal junk any day especially when I am being shown as “wrong” in some fashion. So if you want to dispute my statements have your rubber boots on and books out, as I dont give/ make senseless, anecdotal “helpful” posts or suggest procedural advice unless I know what the heck I’m talking about and this goes for any hobby/trade/craft as I seek out more knowledgeable people/text first in life/ forums etc… before I open my “mouth” in the name of “helping”
Another way and show of civilized behavior is to execute your viewpoint appropriately not in ways that refute my already made advice/comments unless you are making a true statement and can prove then that my method is flawed somehow not just personal opinion.(An appropriate way to do this in this thread for example would have been to say maybe IMHO you can leave it in the primary, As I myself do in the past etc… Done deal now you did not dismiss my or others comment/s, You “helped” others with your viewpoint and all is well because your not the one being a jerk and provoking and flame baiting YAH DIG. Make sense to all the caring, compassionate, lovey dovey brewers that want to help others???) Sure I can be wrong sometimes too, but in these cases I usually keep my mouth shut until I know I can truly be of assistance with real life data to make a difference for that newer brewer.
How many people in this particular hobby/craft etc… have steered any of you wrong in person (LHBS come to mind many times.) online etc… Where you wished someone would have given you better advice than the well I think you should do this because I think its right because its my own way. It so happens that home brewing can be accomplished with many differing methods although the hard science never changes folks. Sure it evolves as newer research finds better easier ways, But it all relates to natural/ proven reactions taking place in many complex relationships called brewing.
In no way do I know it all and I expect this craft will be a lifetime of learning and I am humble enough to admit that fact. If it was about pride or “cajones” I wouldn’t be able to state that. But if you feel you got your thinking cap on when deciding to dispute my advice/ facts. I am here guys ready and willing to put you in the spotlight if you want to start shining bright lights my way.[/quote]
The FACT is every time I see posts by you, you’re arguing with someone.
Now please, go ahead a write another short story. It’s a slow day at work. I need something to read that will give me a good laugh.
