  • My father got into home brewing when I was about 11 and i always helped him in the brewing and bottling of the beer, but not the sampling, i just bought my first kit and regreted not buying it peice by piece as soon as i opened it :-( . Im an avid microbrew lover, everything from the stouts to the IPA's.

    I am going to make a bold statement. Most of the ones I have tried taste, bitter as in harsh,
    metalic, plasticy, and skunky. I prefer a coors or bud light over most other lagers because
    they at least ...
