MOD EDIT: More merging.

Hi everybody,

I saw a TV ad recently for a commercial beer that made a big deal of being "triple hopped." My guess is that this is a vacuous advertising claim, since even a novice like me adds hops twice to the wort. I could easily imagine adding a third dose for some reason.

So the question: what is triple hopping? And is it worth the advertising campaign it's getting?

Thanks in advance.

If you've ever tasted a Miller product you'd realize that it is a total marketing ploy. Sometime I feel I add more hops to 5 gallons of Homebrew than BMC put in several barrels.

Do you think if we hopped a 4th time it might be better?

I'm thinking about 1-2 pellets in this sucker tucked into a pint glass and pour away. $hit that would make it all foamy.



Stick some pellets in a hop sack tie it off, then snip the end off with scissors. DIY Teabag....



That's too much work, fark it.

I saw this commercial and had to tell the non-homebrewer that was sitting with me how sad that statement was and that they were just trying to market to a uneducated crowd.

No, not this one at least but this was at a wedding at a country club so we were in the bar and somehow it came up that the bar tender couldn't have the beer I was having (Sierra Nevada Pale Ale) because it contained wheat. Well I had to butt in and explain that there was no wheat in this beer and in fact the person next to me having a Widmer Hefe or says wheat beer right on the label does not in fact contain 100% wheat.

At any rate this is when the eyes start to roll.

Please remember that in no way does anything produced by any variant of B or MC in any way resemble a Pilsner. Bavarian or Bohemian. BoPils is one of my favorite styles of beer and it's really a marvel that you can get that much flavor and complexity out of only pilsner malt and saaz hops. Nothing else goes in a BoPils.

Has anybody ever served or tried a BMC that's been Randalized?

No I haven't, and I'm not sure that I want to. I am excited about the step-by-step instructions for building a randall on their website though.
