A friend just asked me to let her husband try some of my homebrew. Naturally I asked what he liked. He told her, Alaskan Amber - lagers. I didn't have the heart to correct either of them, I just told her I had the perfect beer for him (either way, I won't be wrong!).

With the popularity of the show Moonshiners a whole new generation of stupid questions have been born:
"You brew beer? You mean like on Moonshiners?"
"You brew beer? Where is your still?"
"You brew beer? I love that. I watch Moonshiners all the time."
"You homebrew? I've always wanted to make my own whiskey."
Or the people who somehow think of homebrewing as inferior to distilling: "You brew beer huh? That's fine. But, I really want to learn to make whiskey." I see this same person all the time with a beer in his hand, but have never seen or even heard of him drinking whiskey.
Or the silliest: "You brew beer? Do you have a friend named Tickle, too?" I hope this last one was kidding.

My wife and I brewed up 9 kegs (and a case) for m brother in laws wedding this weekend.
We did 5 gallons of stout
10 gallons of IPA
10 gallons of honey wheat
And 20 gallons of my pale blonde

As I was setting up the jockey box and the groomsmen were taking the first few pours, one piped up, "I wonder how many people here are used to drinking unfiltered, non-pasteurized beer?"
I made some snide remarks about how there are going to be some serious beer farts and runs to the bathrooms later on in the night.
Fast forward 3.5 hours. All of the kegs are dry, my wife, myself, and another couple who brew are downing a ridiculously expensive bottle of Pinot while soaking the night away in the hot tub. My friend's wife pipes up, "Good Lord! Did you guys smell how bad it was in that tent! It smelled like everyone farted at once."
My buddy and I nodded at each other, clinked glasses, and proceeded to laugh about it for the rest of the night.

Sis texted me tonight, they had some people over and broke it out. "overall impression is that they like it, xyz said that it was a really good stout, almost like guiness"

She said she tried to explain the ipa part but to no avail. (in their defense, it did come out very dark, i guess the BMC crowd has 2 categories, light beer (fizzy yellow water) and guiness (anything darker than urine)
My urine is a nice copper color due to all the beer I drink. My wife says I need to drink more water...so I do I just cut it with about 5% alcohol and some hops.

Moonshiners is actually what got me into brewing. I was over at a friends house and we started joking about getting into the biz, asking our wives if they would keep the still running if we got caught. One thing led to another and we ended up in a serious conversation about making beer. We usually brew 5G batches together and split them when we bottle.

That's right home brewers are walking factories, we eat and wash it down with bottle conditioned home brew with live yeast cultures eating up all the digestible sugars in our stomach while farting co2 and pissin ethanol. Lol, I had that thought last night thinking about this thread.

"If you drink the stuff in the bottom, it can kill you. Humans can't have yeast." no s&%#, I've heard that more than once from different people.

I figure that people drinking "the stuff on the bottom" will ultimately lead to the Zombie Apocalypse. we should be immune from the many years handling yeast. brewers with beards should be able to command zombies by way of thought alone.
