Beer keeps coming out too good
No matter what I brew, my beer keeps coming out just a little too good. It's becoming a problem because no one can hang out and chew the fat and throw back a couple homebrews. We can't talk about anything because every time we take a sip we can't say anything except "Damn, this beer turned out good".

I feel like its gotten to the point that it's interfering with my social life. I've tried being a bit more lax with sanitation. I've tried pitching with unknown quantities of yeast just willy nilly. I've even tried pitching a couple of days after the boil. Nothing seems to work, it keeps coming out awesome.

What should I do?

brew a Bud Light clone. That will end your streak of supposed awesomeness.

I had that problem when I stopped using nuclear fission to boil the wort. And pure HCL to sanitize. ever since I put the reactor back in my brew day my beer has been more "normal". Maybe give it a shot?

Alright. Ill give it a shot. Ill brew a non nuclear boiled Bud Light Clone. They take so friggin long though.

This thread is on the verge of being really silly.

Damn, this beer came out good.

I love it when people drink one of my brews and stop talking to each other. They just sit there and stare at the glass, observing from different angles between sips. My obsessive compulsive nature won't let me get lazy, though!

Jeeze. It's pretty hard to find a Bud Light Clone Recipe thread that actually has a Bud Light Clone Recipe in it. I guess I'll have to wing it, and that means its off to the store to buy a six pack of Bud Light. Gonna see what the FG is, estimate the attenuation and get a ball park OG. I guess it's gonna be some combination of 2row and rice with a light bittering addition of some kind of hop.

just divide the abv by 0.84 and get the # of DME to use in it, dump the numbers into beersmith and sub in a LOT of rice, give it a quarter ounce of saaz and call it close enough for government work?
