…in my opinion this subject will always be connected to the person that dropped it here first.
Your hero was far from “the first” my friend. He may have researched, reviewed, and edited but give credit where credit is due. …and IMO he has turned away far more than he has attracted. A “connection” I would not be proud of ….but that’s just me.
A simple search can reveal HSA discussion here as far back as ‘10. (probably goes back further but the search engine has limitations).
…and then there’s this:
For the yet unaware it's important to mention that late famous homebrewer (and mathematician) George Fix, Ninkasi and AHA distinguished service award winner, discussed HSA in detail in the 90s.
Even among his peers, though thanked for his contributions, he wasn’t given authorship credit in the ‘original’ paper which started all the controversy.
Not until v3 was acknowledgment added by the authors (CT, Brandon, Dave and Nico) for his (along with yourself, Kit, and Todd) “ideas, role, assistance, review and edit” that further reveal he wasn’t “the first” but one of many:
“It took many minds and considerable number of hours of trial and error and ruminations over Kunze and Narzis to work out the minor details of adapting inert brewing methods to the homebrew scale.”
I will not take anything from him. He certainly is a smart guy and has contributed to the Low O2 world. However, IMO, accumulating data from previous original material, being thanked for assistance, and being one of many reviewers is far from being “the first”.

No worries. He can always start up a fourth or fifth account if he wants.Did he seriously make alt accounts?
Given the same confrontational style, many feel ‘hmbrwr4life’ is his alt acct.
From what I understand the original authors of the paper — his own peers — banned him from their website which has become a trend with him.
Maybe getting banned from at least three websites might give one pause to reconsider their approach but that hasn’t seemed to happen yet.
