Lylo, besides you beating me in Cheese last year on the last week I am very disappointed in your posts above
They are pretty negative.
I'm disappointed because you are an older member and must at least have some idea at how many thousands of hours have been spent on getting terminology right here. Do you?
You ask for a simple list and complain about your eyes glazing over. You say you struggle with the ever changing terminology...
I sort of agree with you but also expect a lot more.
A simple list can be found after the pic in the post that josh linked. You will also find your answer to wtf VFO means there.
BIABrewer didn't create the terminology and formula problems that exist in the brewing world. We are the ones spending thousands of hours correcting/fixing them and then spending another thousand hours making our fixes look simple for God's sake!
The terminology has not
been ever-changing. Nearly all terminology here has been consistent for several years. The only terminology, with one major exception, that has ever varied is end of boil terminology and that is extremely tricky to correct and get right.
Your suggestion of having a short concise list is something we thought of years ago. If it was that easy we would have done it years ago. It is very important that we get all the terminology right before we re-write and structure the site.
On a final note, as one of the main contributors here, I hate posts that ask us to give even more than we do already or trivialise what has already been done. I have personally spent countless hours on this site. No one here who contributes, including me, makes a dollar.
Obviously all the thinking and hard work that has been done here can be capitalised on and made to look easy. We would like to see this happen. The question is will someone here make it happen or will another person steal the work and do it badly?
That will be up to people like you I think.
