I won't get into details, because some people here get peeved when you talk about dumping beer, but I dispatch non-ideal beers quickly.
You're 100% inside my head Passedpawn. I couldn't have said it better. I didn't get into this to force down bad beer. I got into it to MAKE fantastic beers that I couldn't get commercially in my area.

I think it's funny a lot of us have a friend(s) that think our 'bad beers' are one of the best they have drank. I gave some of my brown ale to a couple of buds and they loved it. They are either trying not to hurt our feelings, or they just don't have any palette.

haha, it's true. I have a beer disposal service named Scot. I made a Houblon Chouffe clone that was actually pretty good, but I just never wanted a high-ABV beer. I gave him 2 cases and it was astonishing how fast he got those bottles back to me.

OMG! this thread is about me today..brewed a Nut Brown Ale.messed up on the hops..tasted it before carboy and was extremely bitter/hoppy. Some like hoppy beer, I don't will see in 5 weeks after first taste from the bottle. If I don't like it, I may give itall away or dump it. As Yooper said," life is too short to drink bad beer."

i used to have an alcoholic buddy that would drink anything with alcohol in it, so he was my bad beer / bad wine disposal but now i just pour it out ,i think out of a hundred batches i have choked down about four batches and poured three down the drain.

Enabling an alcoholic!

At least the beer wasn't wasted.

I made a Belgian Tripple that I didnt care for, gave one to a friend who is much more experienced as a brewer and he raved to everyone about how I nailed the style.

That convinced me that I just don't like triples and I've never brewed another one.

I thought the same way about Tripels. Brewed one a few years ago. Body was good, but I didn't care for the flavor. Decided never again after it took over a year to finish the last bottle.

My yeast starter is ready for the Velvet Rooster. I hope I don't regret by my change of heart.
