That's a few light years away lol !! You do use your eyes to eat and drink so if it looks good people might think it tastes a little better

I have 2 little mini swing top bottles, i always fill those up on bottling day. Then i dont feel bad for cracking a bottle as soon as they are carbed (a tiny volume) ...... Or perhaps only half carbed hahaha!

I salute your self control though!

My theory exactly! I would say its definitely true as well.......in that it at lest gets people excited to try a beer. And converts them to the idea that a home brewed beer may actualy taste better than what they are used to.

. . . . . . Then they taste my beer......hahahaha. I dont think the labels help much after that!

Are there any low key local comps? I feel that after I get a few more brews under my belt i would like to get some more formal and organised feed back.

Not sure if I want to jump into beervana etc. or travel much for them just yet.

Have some questions for the more experienced brewers today I added the hops to my pale ale after 6 days in primary... Instructions say to give it another 5 days, had a sample and it Taste pretty sweet, gravity reading leads me to believe it has a fair way to go... (1024), beer still had lots of muck floating round and hasn't settled as much as previous batches by this point in time... Is this due to using a decent yeast ? Brew has been steady at 18.5 the entire ferm... Also should I cold crash it for a few days once complete ??
