Coopers Community Oracle? Otto Von Blotto

Recommended Posts

This bloke is the heart, soul, and cultural guru of this site.

He relentlessly and selflessly responds on a 24/7 basis, to all of our pathetic, ignorant, unhygenic, intemporate, uncontrolled, and repetitive queries.

But not a bad word to anybody! Only studied and repeated suggestions.

I'd be happy to come to Adelaide, assuming he would separate himself from Brisbane, to see him pinned as the Coopers Community Oracle!

GOOD ONE, Kelsey!

Cheers

Never heard of him................Just kidding, he is a legend but as a whole this forum is easily the most knowledgeable and friendly I have ever been on. Everyone is very friendly and rarely is there any bad things said!!

Who are we talking about?  Some dude who has moved on from kit and extract brewing to all grain.  Why would he give us Coopers kit brewers the time of day?

Clearly, like BB I am kidding.  We are wrapped that guys like Kelsey continue to contribute to the forum and grow everybody's knowledge.  He and others enable us to continue our brewing experience and grow our knowledge.

Thank you guys, I enjoy helping others learn more about brewing and of course I'm continually learning more as well. 

I also like that the site is much easier to access on mobile than it used to be. I often jump on at work in between runs to pass the time.

Dunno how this site does it .. it's the only site that doesn't goet blocked by the alcohol filter on the work computers. And can agree otto has taken the time to answer my stoopid questions both public and private. I'm from the Gold Coast and will be in Bris-Vegas this year again gotta try catch the right bus and talk shop. 🤙

I should actually say that to someone one day just to see what their reaction is 😂 

I blame Dad for my big interest in the scientific side of brewing, not in a bad way though. I feel learning the whys along with the hows has improved the beers I'm brewing a lot and it's why I tend to post a lot about it. I can rarely blame process faults for a batch I'm not entirely happy with, it's usually a recipe design issue. This English ale on tap currently is a little sweet, obviously didn't bitter it enough.

I'm raising a can of Old Milwaukee as a toast to Otto Von Blotto, the second best bus driver on this forum. 😄

I’ll second that OVB is fantastic at replying to questions and being gratuitous in relaying information to ya on this forum. 

There are a few guys out there that have a seemingly unending wealth of knowledge. 

And some of the guys “specialise” in some fields too.

Yes. I specialise in sarcastic wit and I find Hairy makes me feel somewhat inferior at times. 😄

I was worried we had a public Bromance 💘💘 going on here & I had to avert my gaze to another Forum?

Lets remember its a "Coopers Community" & there are many really great contributors on this forum.

Applause to all contributors. 

Cheers
