I definitely agree with you, was just playing devil's advocate, I guess.That may be true also. Just because one is a pro doesn't make them better than everyone else. I realize you may have been tongue in cheek with that statement, but I wanted to rebut anyway.QuoteKind of like a great chef working for a chain restaurant.
Well, now you are implying that the homebrewer is a better brewer that the probrewer who owns the establishment.
Yeah, well, try getting a job at a brewery with that attitude. Also, commercial brewing is a lot different than homebrewing. Most homebrewers would not know there way very well around a commercial brewery. It's a big learning curve. Even if they have the best recipe in the world there is no guarantee it will turn out without the supervision of the folks who know how to make the equipment work.
OTOH I have known some pro brewers who made terrible beer and didn't know jack about brewing. And some of the best beer I have ever tasted has been homebrew.
