Default Home Brewing "Here's Your Sign" thread

Hi all...Just a thought...Being a home brewer and knowing my sense of humor and sarcasm, I thought starting a thread in regards to witty, and sarcastic replys to non-home brewers in regards to the routine questions we recieve from Family, friends, neighbors and various shop keepers when we tell them we are home brewers or we plan on using certain equiptment for our home brewing would be a bit of fun...Lets hear what you have told various people...

I stuck the common nonbrewer questions I hear in an FAQ.

None are witty or sarcastic; I usually try to keep brewing related conversation with nonbrewers as pleasant and inviting as possible just in case they want to get involved.

Better update that FAQ. Homebrewing is legal in Utah now.

You mean like this Thread???

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f19/warning-label-fun-90815/

{The sign generator link is in there if you are interested.)

With signs like this in there?


Or my "Hot Chick With Handgun" Series?




Or the Yoda Series?



Or the Classic Chestnut I started using over a year ago?



Meh, no one uses signs for oft repeated questions around here.....

SOme of the statements for your signs could include,

Is it legal?
Can you go blind?
Why don't you Just buy Beer like the rest of us?
Do YOU triple hop YOUR beer?
So, can you make me Bud Light? (I'd personally go with hot chick with handgun for that one...like "STFU, No I Won't make you Bud Light, you moron.")

One of my personal favorites is when people ask why they need to drink it out of a glass, so I tell them about the yeast. Then they freak out about drinking beer yeast sediment in it. THEN... if they are sick within a month of drinking it, they will blame it on the homebrew! RE-FUGING-DICULOUS!

I think he means the Bill Engvall.. "Here's your sign" gig...

... as in you walk into a HBS and ask for 12 lbs of two-row and 2 pounds of hops..

"Wow, makin' an IPA??"

"No, just getting an early start on wreath makin' for Xmas!"

... heeeeeeere's your sign.

Oh... and for those of you who haven't heard Engvall's bit... it's all about how morons should have to wear a sign that says "I'm a moron"...

Yeah, they had to be altered to protect the innocent (and make them safe for work)

Why can't hot chicks with handguns ever think of the guys at work?

(and I don't like her for her hotness as much as for the name Hot Chick With A Handgun)

Everybody gets sick of your stuff though!! . I absolutely hate it that everyone thinks that, just because it's a homebrew, that it is going to have 15% alcohol in it. Not saying that a couple of mine don't have high alcohol, but come on!!!
