Got a question, I just read the poll on the extract VS. AG thing. There are more extract and extract with partial grain brewers on this site than AG. However the AG boys and girls are pretty adament about the quality of the beer. I have a batch, my first, fermenting right now, and was wondering....is there no such thing as a good extract? I know beer is not beer, but if I don't go to AG, will my perception of beer be limited and when I go to the Blue Corn Cafe in Santa Fe this ski season or the Hilton Head Island Brewery in South Carolina, will I ask myself "what in the hell have I been drinking?" I had always thought that, even though I knew a homebrew might not taste as great as a microbrew (amature versus professionals) it would at least be close and a hell of a lot better than that store bought crap. Then reading more into AG brewing, with my schedule and a three year old, it will be a LONG time before I can get away with dedicating a whole day to brewing. I guess I'm just asking, extract brews are still good brews, maybe not the best, but at least 100% better than the big 3 (Miller, Bud and Coors).
