How many of these have you heard about your homebrew
 
That'll make you go blind.

Isn't that illegal?

Shine huh?

I won't tell the feds.

I don't like dark beer.

every time I mention it people expect me to hand over a couple cases like it's free or something, everyone wants to try it. funny thing is even when I'm not satisfied that it's good enough and feel I can make it better, everyone says it's awesome. I must say my stouts turn out really well though.

A lot of people seem to be still remembering the 70's and 80's when some home brews were crap, so there are still a lot of non-believers around who run a mile when I offer them home brew. But stuff them ... and all the more for me....

Most of my friends just ask "What's on tap today?"

It's so hard keeping track of three taps :D

I get this too - People are reallly surprised how good homebrewed beer can taste, and they don't seem to notice my mumblings like "I forgot Irish moss" or "This beers definetely wants more (or less) hops/chocolate malt/aging/carbonation"

Will you per chance share your stout recipe or any special tricks?

Regards,

Christian

my stout recipe is really simple

coopers stout beerkit
1kg golden corn syrup
3/4 cup of cocoa powder

it turned out ok, could use a bit more choclate though. and might try substituting the corn syrup with hi malt glucose next time.

not much of a recipe I know, as I used a beerkit and just used different fermentables and added chocolate, but it was ok.
