@Sadfield it's interesting what you say. In my head I'm comparing this to the Yeast book by Chris White which goes into a lot of science, but at some point that science made me better at brewing.
I think this applies to cooking - heston blumental (science) vs nigella lawson (instinct?) You can brew successfully scientifically or by being an artisan or somewhere inbetween.

I know science e.g. strange steves water thread and water treatment guide will make better beer. steve. Due to various constraints I know what I can 'chuck in' to hit the mark for me. I will one day treat myself to steve's techniques. Of course once you enjoy the improved result it would be tough to go back. That's the same debate often about extract vs all grain.

I suppose its the best I can brew vs the quickest I can brew something can enjoy drinking 20 litres of

Yeah I agree with you that there is a balance between the science and "art" side of brewing. I'm probably more on the "art" side but every so often it's really interesting to read the science side, it helps my art.
