So I have been drinking Sam Adams and my home-brews for about 6 mos. I had a miller light draft the other day, which I used to love, it was horrible... I was actually kind of bummed and amazed at the same time lol

Give it a couple more months and Sam Adams might even taste thin. Good stuff!

It sounds more like homebrew has improved your taste!

I bet if you drank pee for 6 months Miller Lite would taste ok again.

Problem solved.

I might consider it, I'll have to get my taste back for it before the Reds start up. Lol

I think rat pee and bud light are considered laboratory equivalents so you can take your pick. It'll suck at first but you will definitely appreciate Miller after that.

I'm not saying I would actually drink rat urine, but I wouldn't drink BL either so I guess it's a wash.

I went to a home brew club meeting and someone brought Budweiser... I do not understand it.

I have actually ran into some brews that I used to really love (hefeweizens especially) that really don't quite do it for me. Alas. It is both from doing home brewing and getting more into craft brew; my tastes have changed, and i want my beers to be a real experience.

I've noticed the same thing. I always have more home brew around here than I can drink. I have four kegs on tap. I LOOOOOOVE beer on tap. Earlier this week, I was out snowboarding and decided to have a beer. All they had was the usual piss beer. I bought a Miller Lite and was pretty disappointed. I used to drink that stuff all the time. I like my homebrew over anything I can buy in a store.

Yes, homebrew greatly improves ones taste to beers in general.
