Well, a few here may have been raised in, or were exposed to, a metric environment...

Brewing in metric would come naturally, no??


Notes:
- Doing it in your sleep does not count!
- Beer really taste different!??!

The metric system is the tool of the devil. My car gets 40 rods to the hogshead, and that's the way I likes it!

I don't understand the point of the question.

Using metric does come naturally.
Of course the beer tastes the same!

Not sure I understand the point as Orfy said, but for the record I'm all metric here! Nice simple numbers and easy conversion.

Not sure if 6 gallons of beer tastes better than 23L of it but I know it'll get you just as drunk!

One of the best is when they go on the road selling love tonic. I still laugh out loud every time I think about the mob chasing them out of town...but as soon as they turn off the bluegrass "chase music", the mob stops. Comedy gold!

I don't know. I've brewed in metric before, and I think it lends some off-flavors to the beer.

Brewing with grams and liters is bound to cause an infection!
