B-complex def,but estrogen,no. The stupidity never seaces to amaze me. Like the guys at the store talkin about the miller triple hopped bit. "It's got more hops than that IPA you picked up. It's triple hopped!". Ohhh,the sweet agony of it all...

A guy on my hockey team said this last night, turning down the offer of my now infamous steam beer (made with real steam!).

He then slammed back a couple MGD's he brought over. Because, commercial beers, esp. BMC, are definitely cleaner than my simple grain-to-glass stuff.
Wow! Wish you had of got more out of him on the subject

I love to hear a guy say "real men drink (BMC here)" when typically BMC's products are American Light Lagers (regardless of how difficult it is to actually brew this style well, it is unarguably a brewing accomplishment, so lets not have that discussion) but, If you look at the history of the style it was designed to be much lighter tasting, in order to appeal to women following the prohibition and going on through WWII when most of the country's men were at war... Not to take away from the style just funny for someone to argue those beverages make them a more manly man. I say Real men drink what THEY like and aren't busy questioning how it makes them look. haha wether it is american light lager or barley wine it's not a purse or other fashion statement it's a beer. If it tastes good drink it. Maybe you should enlighten him about the history behind his Man's drink? Unless he really actually believes homebrew somehow contains estrogen, in this case don't bother he is too dumb to ever understand so leave him ignorant haha, but I am assuming this was just a poor attempt at humor?

I find a lot of humor in product reviews.
"No carbonation Review by ******
Rating 1 star out of 5
been in bottles for 8 weeks and no carbonation. I am 0 for 2 with the danstar dry yeast. (Posted on 4/26/11)"
Downgrades the product; perhaps because of the yeast. No thought that his process may have been lacking.

Another great review I have seen is one star for product quality because shipping was slow.

Be true to yourself SiriusStarr. Don't ever let them change you. Unless it's some sort of surgical procedure that is meant to change you; I guess you can let them do that.
