I got a co-worker that frequently asks me when I'm going to have more cider available. "Oh I've got some, but not for you" I feel like telling him! Last excuse I had was that I ran out of caps to bottle with (which is true) and then he offered my one of his half gallon growlers to put some of my cider in. Dude a half gallon of my cider??? Chill out bro! This chit ain't that easy to make and it's time consuming at that. I only give my ciders away to people that appreciate it or if they happen to be around when I have some line BBQ's and such. Anyone else have this problem?

Teach him how to make his own. He'll wind up appreciating the effort it takes, will be able to make as much as he wants, and might wind up sharing back.

Yeah maybe. It's the part where he asks for some that gets me, you don't ask for cider, you receive it or get your own

One of my friends at work I do share with brought me this from colorado. Now that's cool. Sharing is fine but not giving and not receiving.

Not to derail, but I just had the Decadent the other day and it's deliciously strong.

Not really, but I don't have any co-workers and most of my beer drinking friends homebrew themselves. Plus, I don't bottle. People are welcome to drink my beer when I have parties.

Tell him straight out, NO, he's not on the distribution list.

I'm pretty open with sharing my cider with most folks, most of the time, but those people who just assume that since I made it myself so it must have been 'free' really get my goat.

Funny how those types of people rarely get invited to BBQ's, concerts and parties etc.

+1 to sweet brew and live 311
