I think everyone here is taking this too seriously.

I don't believe you can take beer too seriously. I'm mostly of German ancestry, though.

You've spent too much time on Wikipedia when you read something like that and start looking for the "edit" link...
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

I'm mostly German too, but I've been very indifferent about a lot of issues lately.  People take things too seriously and take them too far.  Maybe I've been drinking too much of the water lately...

It's hard for tone to come across on the internet. I was (mostly) joking.

Yeah, the fluoridation will make you a complacent citizen.  Before you know it, you don't even care that some crappy local brewery is insulting homebrewers!

I read through it, and it's utter rubbish. The arrogant ignorance of the author is astounding.

Admitting you have a problem is the first step.

Having a couple home brews and forgetting about it again is an acceptable sencond step.

i tried to read through it, the quality of the writing is so incoherent and rambling it is hard to get through

It sounds to me like it was written by someone who works at a brewery in the office and has no idea how beer is really made or how to homebrew.  It also sounds like the directions were suspect.

That said, whatever.  It seems the author doesn't want to know more about brewing, that's fine.  It doesn't speak well for the brewery to have this on their FB page.  Aren't they in DE?  Maybe Ron should stop by and straighten them out :)

Yeah, on second reading, it's just a kid who probably got started at the bottom of the brewing business.  The real problem is that someone thought it was a good idea to post this on the FB page.  Interns also in charge of social media, perhaps?  ;D

I think you hit the nail on the head there. She wrote a followup because of several negative comments on the post and said she's only been in the brewing business for 10 weeks. The brewery probably told her to blog about her experience and post it on their page, which wasn't a great idea on their part. I could care less about one person who's clueless about homebrewing, but a brewery being clueless about their image bothers me. Overall, the brewery is good, several great homebrewers work there, and they help us out with our state fair competition. Perhaps I should have posted this in the going pro section under "Don't do this"
