I am sure that I am not the first person to have said this but, I never should have started into this "hobby". After brewing and drinking most of my first batch almost all other beer tastes like piss!! Oops, can I say piss? And I never liked bud, coors, miller etc, they have always tasted like piss. But now I can't stand most of the other beers that I used to like. I feel like I am forcing it down! The worst part is that I only have 4 bottles left and my 2nd batch is not even in the bottles yet. Ahhhhhhh!!!!!! If you guys don't have any of your homebrew what do you drink???

Water with lemon...

Well, first off, I'm never without HB.

Second...now you're a beer snob. Welcome to the club!

I like to drink German Hefeweizens, a good IPA, and if it's hot outside and there's no home brew or Apfelwein (like never), a cold Dos XX's or Tecate with lime hits the spot every time.

SNPA, St Arnolds Texas Wheat, St Arnolds Summer Pils, Broken Halo, Redhook ESB......But it is hard to find me without a few full kegs of homebrew.

I went to a dirt track race last saturday with $1 Tecate....man that was cool.

Don't worry about it your brews will get better plus once you figure out how to time it right you'll have more beer on hand than you'll know what to do with!

Yeah, I think I need to brew a batch every other weekend. Seems like my first batch will last about 3 weekends. Fortunately I do have a batch in primary and another in secondary but I am realizing I will probably be out for about 2 weekends after 4th of July. I wish Mac & Jacks bottled their beer!!!!

i usually enjoy a good german weisse-bier when i don't have homebrew (although the franziskaner around here is getting a little aged). brew up a few hefeweizen's, too. they're quick to make and they'll keep you stocked.

you know I have never been a big fan of hefe's but I am sure that with the vast world of homebrew there has to be several that I would like. Besides, it seems as though almost any homebrew will taste better. How long does a hefe take?

hefe is very quick because you don't need a clarification period. You can bottle right out of primary if you wanna.
