Default My family homebrew debut

So I brought homebrew to a family gathering for the first time today, my pumpkin porter. Feedback included:

1. As we went around saying what we were thankful for during grace, my nerdy college professor uncle said "Would it be appropriate to say I am thankful for Brandon's homebrew?"

2. After trying Sweetwater Brewing Company's Exodus Porter the same uncle said, "I think yours is better." W00t!!!

3. My cousin Ann Marie (who is a Southern Baptist preacher's wife) tried some of mine and said, "Oooh can I have one with dinner?"

4. My aunt, who doesnt drink beer, "Oooh now I could drink that!"

5. My cousin Joe, who has homebrewed for 20+ years, said "You did very well with this."

All in all, a very successful debut. Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow brewers.

Nice, good job! I took this opportunity to unload some brew and everybody sucked it down pretty well. Freed up some bottles so I can get brewing again!

Congrats! I actually don't like it when my family says my beer is good. I never know if they're just saying that to be nice or not. At least when they say they don't like it I know they're being honest.

The last comment, Joe was it? Everyone else loved it, he says "eh, you did good enough for your first try, but I'm still not worried". Love it.

I'm paraphrasing of course. Good job! You may learn it gets harder to keep beer in stock at your place when it's good. We pay a 'toll' whenever we go to the inlaws- 3 bottles for them, 3 for my parents, and a couple for their friends. But, it keeps my paddle in the kettle. Kyle
