I just smiled and said "Don't worry, I'm putting lots of hops in this batch."
Corona? Wtf?

And if you don't pronounce it "The Old Shop" you're just as wrong!

I've just started brewing in the last month so I've been reading everything I can get my hands on and asking anyone I know if they know anything about homebrewing or have any friends that homebrew.

...Anyway, I get to a guy I work with today and he starts telling me that he and a few friends tried brewing a few years back, but something had happened to their batch because they kept getting a bunch of messy blowouts/bottlebombs. I wasn't really understanding exactly what he's was explaining as the problem because he kept saying they forgot to burp their beers. After several more questions he said that they didn't have enough, or maybe any beer bottles and so used 2 liter soda bottles...when we started talking about how they primed the beer for bottling he looked confused...after another few minutes of gentle questioning I finally realized where they had gone wrong...he was completely mystified by the idea of an airlock or blowoff tube...

Yep, you guessed it they were trying to primary in 2 liter soda bottles....I was pretty much left speechless and could only offer that maybe if he ever tried again his next batch might turn out better.

I can only imagine where they got their instructions for that batch...Wow!

What makes it even more amusing is that while we were brewing, we were drinking the six-pack of Phillips Hop Circle IPA that he brought over, but he used Corona Extra as an example of a hoppy beer. It's a stretch, but my only guess is that he mistook the dryness and higher carbonation of the Corona for hop bitterness.

I'm reading the Myron Bolitar series, and so far, I think every single book has something like, "Win drinks a Brooklyn Lager. Win only drinks lager, never beer."
