This must-watch video started with Rick Sellers and bounced along to a few other blogs. The headline “You do realise that passion is not an ingredient?” at I might have a glass of beer got my attention.
It’s a line from video, used to make the absolutely correct point that a flaw is a flaw no matter how much passion a brewer includes in the recipe. Typing “includes in the recipe” makes the sentence look a little stupid, doesn’t it? But if you consider time an important ingredient in some beers or a brewer’s skill vital in just about any beer then passion is also an important addition.
Even in beers brewed according to the Reinheitsgebot.
A little aged passion. A little fresh passion.
