I enjoy brewing as much probably more than drinking beer. I will drink a BMC if someone hands me one but they will get a lesson on what's in it, not in it, how fake it is, how homebrew is better...
I read about brewing daily. Brew weekly. I study and try to understand the science. I get how you need to be precise to be repeatable.
However, I know my system. I care more about the experience than the numbers. I've found that about yea much above my thermometer is 5 gallons. About yea much above my handle rivits is enough to boil 60 minutes and still have 5 gallons. I know that five trips around the yard on the mower is about long enough till I need to stir the mash. About ten trips is how long to convert.
It could go on. Is this homebrew,
