An Obsession with Brewing Protocol

Sacred Grounds:

“An obsession with brewing protocol is generally the mark of an amateur — that pitiable person who makes a simple thing complicated in the futile hope of feeling kinship with the professionals. Nevertheless, if you are making coffee you might as well make it well.” — Kelefa Sanneh

(Via Boing Boing.)

It is a quote about brewing coffee, but it seems to me to equally apply to brewing beer. Something I struggle with at the moment is trying to decide how much of what I know is how to use brewing equipment or brewing techniques and how much of it is how to brew beer.
