Just giving this thread another bump. I would like to solidify The Brewers Code. So think serioulsy about it (and not so seriously too) and see if we can all agree on a solid code.

When tasting another's homebrew, thou shall offer his/her honest opinion on the brew and offer anything helpful to compliment or make better the brew.

Thou shalt never allow specialty beers to be consumed as session beers, they are to be appreciated, not consumed without purpose.

Thou shall keep the brew day holy.

Seems to me it boils down to "be honorable."

Don't email Justin if you really didn't earn a T-shirt.

Promote good beer and brewing.

Respect fellow brewers.

Respect fellow beer drinkers even if they don't drink the same beer in the same way as you.

Give honest but polite feedback to other homebrewers, but be more gentle on the wide-eyed noob's first batch.

Give the recipe. They aren't going to make the same beer anyway.

Always strive for the "next step," whatever that is to you. All Grain, getting out of the kitchen, BJCP, kegging, whatever. Except Jamil, of course, because he's already done it.

Be helpful without condescention. Remember at some point you didn't know that answer either.

Remember that there is more than one way to do most brewing tasks, and most of them work just fine even if it's not your favorite way.

Most homebrewers I've met already adhere to this lofty standard. The craft beer community in general seems to be a very pleasant, courteous, helpful, and honorable bunch. Lets keep it that way.

Well said, and above all, remember to be cool and have a brew....Oh, yeah, also, share your brew (kinda' like spreading the word)

BEER, not just for breakfast any more!
