I would be thrilled to make a bmc clone that was spot on. It ain't that easy.

Revvy, while I agree with your reply, I think it's important to remind people that while BMC may seem flavorless when compared to hoppy ales and fruity lambics and so many other of our creations, they are still good beers in their own right. By that I mean that, even if they are not to your liking, within their style, they are very good beers.

I believe there are 2 types of beer.

1. Virtually flavorless. Meant to be used as an alcohol delivery system.
2. Beer that is full of flavor. Consumed for the flavor.

You can make him a can of Coopers lager in about 5 minutes. 6 gallons of smooth nothingness. Keep him happy and don't waste hours making it.

Oh you don't have to remind me about that, I've said so much on here 100's of times, usually the bud bashing threads that we used to get here quite often. Which hasn't happened in a long time. I think Maureen Ogle's book shut down a lot of the arguments people use to have to bash bud. The whole nonsense the rice and corn were added to cut costs, when it was proven that that actually made Budwieser the most expensive beer in it's time. She unintentionally disarmed a lot of the arguments we beer snobs used to use to make us feel all warm and fuzzy inside....or at least to feel surperior.

But what about the dead you woman found in Bush's mansion the other day. Also, when he crashed his corvette and killed another young woman.

Hmmm...I'm not familiar with the book. I'll have to search for it on Amazon. Sounds like an interesting read.

Why is that stupid? I have respect for both but the beer snobs say "How can you drink that it doesn't have any flavor". It is not the purpose of the beer.
