Some days if someone's already upset me or something else is going on I can be a bit err acidic or course to people.

But for the most part I try to not do so.

So, you have a bad day and take it out on us? Grow up.

That's exactly how you've earned your negative karma. Your ultimate remedy was to go whining enough to get it reset for your self twice and ultimately turned off? Congrat-u-effin-lations. You've created your reputation, but you won't live with it?

You're forgetting the most important thing: Forums like this are for collaboration, not self aggrandizement. Go to HBD for that. We all participate here for FUN and INFORMATION. I choose to participate here, because I'm inspired by the questions. I choose to participate here because I'm challenged to be a better communicator by the other participants.

Both online and offline, you've insulted the work and efforts of some of my closest friends. Take PicoBrew, for example. You don't care for the machine and that's fine. But to tell me offline that they're chinese owned and just in it for the money, when they are a small company based in Seattle is absurd. Worse is that you told me that my own friends don't work there? ...C'mon, man!

Posting that nobody else in a thread knows what they're talking about, whilst simultaneously misstating where whirlfloc is used is not helping your case, either. In yet another thread you're an advocate of filtering?

Then there's the "bad advice" I've supposedly given you? Get a grip, dude!

I share actual techniques for beer I make a living from. If something doesn't make sense, I WANT you to ask followup questions and I'll do my best to explain. I don't keep everything in my head, that's what my library of brewing books is for. That's what being a member of the ASBC, MBAA and BA is for! The BEST THING about brewing is that I've never stopped learning!

I'm going to keep contributing technical information about processes, ingredients and techniques. I'm going to continue giving actual professional advice on the Pro Brewing Topic forum. I've taught and mentored some brewers who are well known and others who are rising stars. I don't care that I'm never going to be a rockstar brewer, but I will keep being like the guy who taught Hendrix a few blues licks.

Your words are your legacy. Choose them wisely.

I like to think I know a good deal about brewing.

No doubt that you do. It's when you've insulted the knowledge or choices of others that things go pear shaped.

Kudos! (since someone cried and had them removed)

It's fine, as long as nobody picks fights we should be fine :)

Yep, but I should add a few things and correct a few things, I never said picobrew is Chinese I said that they are manufactured mostly with Chinese parts. Albeit in the us.

Secondly congrats about all your accomplishments and yes you can never stop learning I ask plenty of questions. But I also work for a brewery.

As to helping people I speak only when I know the answer or leave it to Oginme. Sometimes I get it wrong but s lot of what people state that other people say wrong is s matter of "opinion".

Anyways no hard feelings my friend you post a lot of helpful answers that I end up reading through.


Probably my biggest beersmith annoyance is all the daily Russian posts and people asking some questions that are so bad they are like asking how to breathe. But that's just life those things happen

CK, just curious, what does your comment have to do with the subject I was responding to?

"Even though I've been brewing just a few years and obviously many people who have been brewing longer exist. I like to think I know a good deal about brewing. I guess when it comes to brewing I'm more innovative and spend time on recreating and preserving history. Specifically recipies.

I'm here to help where I can but usually Oginme beats everyone to it."
Grand dad? Can I have a ride on your motorcycle and then help you brew? Come on!?! Are there any sweeter words?
