the blonde will be singly hopped, and essentially based from Biermuncher's recipe. cut down to my 1.5 gal batch size.

thanks again everyone!

I think going from carbonated water to a full flavored porter is kind of rough...

My wife and I used to both not like IPA's but now I can't imagine drinking anything with less hops than them. They are amazing, and we are blessed to live in NorCal where we have easy access to a bunch of great ones.

Fifty bucks says he put it in the fridge and then proceeded to drink it as cold as the pee water he usually drinks... I have taken a porter and had someone taste it lager cold, they hated it. Warm it up to the appropriate temp and they said "hey this is pretty good".

I have a few frieds that drink Bud lite or Coors Lite. They keep asking to try my homebrew but I keep telling them that they would not like what I brew. I am not giving beer to someone that would ot appreciate it.

On the other hand I do have a lot of friends that like craft brews. My neighbor that loves a good craft brew, after tasting a few of my beers said " you are my new best friend".

Consider the sounce of the critique.

Don't be offended. Asking a regular BMC drinker for an opinion on a beer is like seeking advice on good restaurants from someone who eats at McDonald's every day. I say that to make a point, but the comparisons are not that far apart. If your BMC friends don't like it you are probably on the right track.

Welcome to the hobby!!!

Taking a bud light platinum drinker's opinion as anything but drivel is like giving out samples of beluga caviar at wal-mart and taking the response seriously. Take it to a hbc meeting or lhbs for some real feedback.
