It really is boiling down to semantics now. Personally, I don't care what people call themselves. Some of you have some pretty awesome beer out there. I know, because I've tried it. I'm just trying to give a little insight into how this is viewed in the industry. But, even as a homebrewer I was always quick to point out that I didn't consider myself a "brewmaster" for the reasons I mentioned above.
Not sure why anyone's discussion on here would be downgraded to a "tangent", but whatever, dude.
