Today I shared with my family an IPA that I was very proud of, it got 4 place in a BJCP contest(a judge gave it 42 points, the rest of them gave me around 36-38).
I only had a few left ... they ask me if they could try my beer, I say yes and the first thing someone asks me "can you serve your beer ice cold?" I reply "what?" and she says "put it in the freezer, I've tried homebrew and if you don't drink it near zero its horrible".
Ughh after serving my last bottles they drink a little and then they left the glasses half full... 4 out 5 glasses half full after they left my home.
Now I understand the prejudice against homebrewing, is not about the average homebrewer producing low quality beer is about people having a different concept about what beer is and how should it taste.
