Another Essential Question.
Here's my proposal:
Homebrew SE is for dedicated home brewers and serious enthusiasts. If you have a question about …
- the brewing process
- brew appreciation
and it is not about …
- selling alcohol
- buying commercially brewed products
- irresponsible consumption of alcohol
… then you’re in the right place to ask your question!
- The brewing process covers ingredients, equipment, flavours produced by the process and all of the obvious technical questions
- Brew appreciation covers competitive brewing/judging, food pairings, glassware, discussion of commercially brewed products, recommendations & the edge cases we have embraced so far
I think appreciation is an important aspect we should cover explicitly. In my opinion it's the brewer's raison d'être - it's certainly mine!
When we get the Recipe Questions issue all sorted out, we should spell out our policy in the FAQ.
