That reminds me of when I was bottling my first batch. One of my roommates came in and said "Save me one okay?" like I was going to drink all 50 that night.

I've made beers with a burnt plastic aftertaste... I still drink them because the rest of the beer is good.

Probably the most asked stupid question I'm asked is

Them- What kind of beer do you make?

Me- Good beer.

That usually confuses people enough so I don't have to go into too much detail.

The second most asked question;

Them- Wow, you make beer?

Me- No, I woke up this morning and decided that I was going to tell you a lie today and say that I make beer. It was either that or I was going to finally come clean and confess that it was me that shat in your cat box last weekend so don't worry about your cat's anus, it's not too stretched out.

You know that there are many different styles of beer, right?

Someone showing genuine interest in your brewing isn't stupid. Why not use the opportunity to educate them a bit, or even invite them to assist on the next brewday?

Let me clarify a bit please. Most people that ask really don't know much about beer and when I do try to educate them, most don't care and they go to the default question of what does it taste like. I have spent many hours explaining the process to people and I enjoy talking about it with those that are interested. When I try to explain beers and the brewing process, I try to start out simple and then build upon that so the recipient can understand. I have had quite a few people stop by on brew days and a few guys even are getting into the craft. Sorry if I offended anyone with my previous post. I was trying to make fun and be light hearted.

There are countless styles of beer and I by no means know them all or claim to be an expert. Most ask what "kind" . After I say good beer, I usually go into what style of beer I make. Sorry if I sound like a jerk but to me, kind is not a style. And with my usual joking personality, I am usually able to pull it off, make the guy laugh and educate a bit. I agree that out of context and in writing, my description didn't sound very good at all. Thanks for caring enough about the craft to respond though.

Did they taste it? or were they content to just look
