Thankfully there are some people here who do understand and actually respect my thoughts and opinions even if they are wrong.
That is the problem, you are not respecting other people's thoughts, experiences, and advice because you think you are above someone that does not have a phD in chemistry despite them having more infinite wisdom in brewing even if their education is a GED. The reason people are saying to do something simple and to get your process down and practice good sanitiation and fermentation is because we have ALL been where you are at right now. The only difference is that we were willing to admit that we knew nothing and accepted the advice of someone that has went through the process we were going through at that time. We are trying to give you that same advice to avoid the pitfalls and mistakes that we made. Yet you are too stubborn or arrogant or a combination of both to admit you want our advice. That's why it seems like every third post out of you is that "I'm a fucking chemist, I know more than you!" That attitude doesn't fly anywhere, and definitely not in this forum. I certainly don't hope you treat others around you the way you are treating some of the members of this forum that were only trying to help you. Your condescending attitude is why everyone is being a dick to you. Everytime someone offers you some helpful advice you do the opposite and proclaim from the mountain top that you are chemist. New flash!!!! Yeast and bacteria don't care if you have a phD or a GED. If you knew so much about brewing you wouldn't be pitching your yeast at 97F, adding alpha amylase post-boil, or trying to steep base malt like vienna and munich malt. Some of the best beers I have ever had were from people who barely had a high school education and some of the worst beers are from some of the smartest people I know because they were too arrogant to admit they new nothing and were afraid to ask for help.
Here is my advice, take it for what it is worth or do nothing with it. I don't care. I am just trying to help and I am tired of reading this train wreck despite the amusement of others:
1. Readjust your additude
2. Admit you know nothing about brewing.
3. Read "How to Brew" by John Palmer THE EXTRACT SECTION ONLY
4. Repeat step 2.
5. Brew an EXTRACT only beer from a kit. Follow the directions VERBATIM, because despite you being a chemist you know nothing about brewing not because you aren't intelligent, but because you don't have experience. Use R/O water only the extract has everything you need, forget that you know chemistry. Practice good sanitation and control you fermentation temps. Take good notes!
6. Do no brewing for 2 weeks, or planning for that matter. Reflect on your most recent brew. Repeat step 2 and 3. You may advance onto reading the partial mash section of the book.
7. Bottle your beer.
8. Wait 2 weeks. Repeat steps 2 and 3.
9. After 2 weeks taste and analyze your beer. Enjoy the fruits of your labor.
10. Find a local homebrew club to share your beer and get back constructive feedback on your beer. Make friends, and possibly find someone to do a brew session with so that you can learn things that aren't necessarily in a book or chemical equation.
