Yea I gave some ciders to some of my "friends" at work and told them to be hush hush about it. Well word got out and this one guy that I don't really get along with was like "eh man, when ya gonna bring ME some of that beer you brewin?" I was like dude in out at the moment gotta get some more supplies.

A quick fix for this guy is to bring in a still botttle conditioning batch. Tell him he needs to let it age for a week. Once a couple of bottles blow, he'll stop asking.... >

Find out what he could trade.

I know its illegal, but keep upping on his offer until he stops offering.

Guys are getting smoked salmon and ribs for pete's sake!

Maybe this guy will offer his wife's home made bread. Counter offer for a freezer full of beef.

He'll say you're nuts, but keep it so high he'll walk away.

Or give him some training on how to do it using grocery store apple juice.

Maybe that'll get him off your back.

He is treating you as a "cider slut"....figures you are giving it up to everyone else so you might as well give it up to him too.

I would just bottle up some diluted apple juice and tell him to be careful with it, that it is really potent.

A couple times going through this routine and he will probably drop off your radarfor good.

I had a dog that begged at the table. I cured him of it by always giving him a slice of lemon. He stopped begging, because the result sucked.

As others have suggested, if you have a few bottles of something that didn't work out quite right, that's the stuff to give to this guy.
