The only thing I could think of was that by letting the barley malt out in the sun for a few days, it would pick up some wild yeasts, which would in turn be used to ferment the mash.
I bet thats where he heard that. He loves those goofy shows.

Me: I'm going to start brewing beer.
Wife: Ew!

Me: Try this first batch of extract.
Wife: Eeww!

Me: This all-grain smells wonderful, don't you think?
Wife: Eeewww!

Me: At least try the hard cider.
Wife: Eeww - wait, got any more?

We have a winner!

By my brother in law this weekend:
Absinthe is the best beer they make.
So, beer is made with barley?

Many more I can't think of right now.

This was my mother. She despises every single style of beer she's ever tried (and she's tried a lot, thanks to me), because they all taste and smell too "beer-y". So I started making cider, and now she keeps trying to steal bottles of my cyser.

I got one. Was talking to my sisters bf (i have not met this fellow he lives severalllll states away) and I heard he loved good beers, so speaking over speaker phone I asked him what beers he liked, he replied that "I dont like american beers" I retorted with " so you dont like founders, seirra navada ect?" he says "I dont know iv never heard of them" then he said "I like belgian beers like trappist" and I say "well If I brewed you a belgian you would not like it because its american?" (confused)

There was a bit more to that conversation but I was talking with family and already had a few brews so I dont remember much more from that. Plus after that short convo that guy wasnt worth my time at that moment.

Im assuming he likes everything "imported" and if its not imported it sucks. Sad

Make him a big American IPA and tell him it's a Belgian. Chances are he wouldn't tell the difference...

I hate it when this happens........even when most of the top 10 beers in the world are american made

It is true that america had a dark age of brewing from prohibition up to the early 1980's, but since then I say that we make some of the finest beers in the world

This was a quite a few years ago.

I was in a bar and asked what they had on tap the waitress rattlled off the generic:

Bud, Coors, Miller, and every version of Light, Ice, and Dry (what ever that is).

Then came Corona, Dos Equis, Killinans red, and Sam Adams.

She said domestics were $3.00 and that imports where $4.00.

I said I'll take a Sam Adams.

The bill came and it was $4.00 a beer. I said what gives? I ordered Sam Adams. She said that was an Import.

I said Sam Adams is made in Boston. She just looked puzzled, and said it was still an import.
