When I first started brewing, I went together with a friend to buy all the equipment. We brewed my first 6 batches together, then split the bottles.

As we were discussing what kind of beers we wanted to make first, he said:

"Anything but an IPA. Imagine you are playing basketball, shirts against skins. You've been playing for a while and everyone is dripping sweat. You go up for a rebound, the same time as a skin and you get mouth full of his sweaty armpit. THAT is what an IPA tastes like!"

If my IPA smelled or tasted like that,I'd hurl & dump it. The man has no tastebuds...

To be fair, I've had IPAs that tasted like that. But they were outliers!

I've had my nose forced into a fellow wrestler's sweaty armpit before. Never smelled or tasted an IPA that bad...

My 4year old was telling his teacher the process for brewing. He told her all about weighing the grains and cranking the mill ( gives him something to do, I use the drill) putting it all in a big pot with water. Then you drain it into another pot, add rat food (hops). After you're done you put yeats in it. In a couple of weeks, you have Ice Tea.

She called me on it, she said "sounds more like you're making beer with the boy, not 'Ice Tea'."

Had to laugh, he came up with what was being made all on his own.

I hope he says "Yeats" instead of "yeast" and it's not just a typo

Homemade fortified wine or was he bottling mixed drinks?
Sounds like my FIL's family secret BBQ sauce. "First start with a bottle of Kraft sauce, then add . . . "

Conversely... if sweaty armpits smelled like IPA's I'd probably play more basketball!
