I am new to brewing and had what I considered a legitimate question about the effect of raising alcohol a little. Most people said it could have a negative effect so I decided to at least put it off until at least a few brews. While I truly don't drink beer to get drunk and honestly don't even remember the last time I was drunk I would be lying if I said I didn't like the relaxing feeling of alcohol.

Also I probably will make some wine and cider later but I prefer beer most of the time.
You asked a fair question and got a good array of answers. Nobody is bothered by the question. Rather, they are just giving their own personal opinion...which, by the way, will assist you just the same.

Remember, above anything else, home brewing is about being unique and experimenting. You should certainly do the homework before trying something radical, but your idea of a great beer may differ from other people's
I'm trying to catalog every brew online so I don't have to keep notes all over the house. Check it out on my blog site below:
