Default A great realization about homebrewing

Well, tonight im sitting here with my first brew sitting in the fermenter on its 3rd day. I cracked open a sam adams summer ale. I only bought this beer because its supposed to have been brewed with lemon zest, and grains of paradise. I poured up a glass, and the taste? entirely disheartening, i just sampled my homebrew, a wheat beer, and i have to say that my homebrew, being warm and flat, tastes 100% better than this swill.

well anyhoo i realized that being a homebrewer gives me the right to say truthfully, "I can make this better myself"

That's why we all do it! Most of us can make it better.

I also do it to make a difference to my friends, coworkers, and neighbors tastes buds. So they know what real beer should taste like.

I get that same feeling every time I drink a Sam Adams brew.

You are not being vain at all. I was just thinking the same thing myself. I'm currently outside having a pint of homebrew bitter. I was tasting it, being critical, wondering what tweaks I can make.......Then I suddenly realised, hey this beer is frickin awesome! What am I being so over critical about? If I were sat in an English pub and had this served from the cask I would be very pleased indeed with it and stick with it for the rest of the night! I had fun brewing it, it is way cheaper......Where is the downside to this hobby!?

You may be a little bit, sometimes a brewery does not have the same taste as you. I like many Sam Adams products and some I cant stand but that is generally because of style.

It would be more apt for you to compare a wheat of theirs unless you are saying you are comparing it to your already fermenting beer.

Lastly not trying to rain on your parade just saying Sam Adams generally does a fairly good job, I know you can kick the ass of Bud and such.

this is one of the few hobbies that are actually more cost effective to do than not do

That's the only reason I keep the Sammys around...they're one of the best bottles for bottling your own! If I didn't give so many away I wouldn't have to keep replacing the bottles but what can I say? I'm a sharing kind of guy!
