I was brewing with my FIL this past Sunday. We were doing and Irish red. Keep in mind he is a devouted Miller Lite fan and he kept commenting on how dark it was looking. When I put it into the fermenter and topped it up to 5 gallons he said "its still sooo dark, maybe you should add another couple of gallons of water." I just shook my head and said "no its just fine."

This is more of an ignorant action than a stupid comment, but...

Several years ago I gave out some newly-bottled Ales to some friends. I explained how they were new and should be stored somewhere for several weeks and then refrigerated before drinking. Instead of listening to these instructions however, one friend decided he was thirsty right then and proceeded to crack open the warm homebrew right there.

Me: Don't do that!
Him: ...

He tilted the bottle up to the sky like it was MGD and then proceeded to cuss at me when he got an entire face and body wash with frothing suds. Since it wasn't MY carpet that got trashed with beer, I found this extremely amusing. The really funny thing is, about a month later he did exactly the same thing with someone else's bottle. *sigh*.

I find this funny as this is why Im going into AG. My daughters friend makes VERY GOOD AG bear and I really never liked beer all that much until I drank about 14 different styles of his about 2 months ago and was amazed how much I actually LIKE beer, just not the piss that is sold over the counter. I think I have him making wine though after he had some of mine in which he really didnt like wine so it was an interesting day.

I got the comment last week upon letting a friend taste my nut brown ale. "This is hopper than the first batch." First batch wsa an American Pale dry hopped with an ounce of cascade. I started to say "No..." aw nevermind.

I know the people who have tried my first batch all said, wow This is really good. But I wish someone would give me an honest opinion. I even took a bottle of my newly bottled Brown ale at the time. Probably bottled 3 days. Poured a small sample for all and told them it's comparable to a Newcastle.
Them:"This is pretty good"!!
ME: "NO IT"S NOT!"
It tastes like granny smith apples. Give me an honest opinion

One of the guys there though is planning on starting brewing though so it will be cool. He is a nature boy and his comment was, I'm gonna be purist and just do All Grain. I'm like Thats great. But You should REALLY do at least one extract batch first. Ease into the confusion. I turned him onto this site. Dunno if he joined or is just lurking.

Well in all actuality, they may not be able to notice it as a defect. It merely tastes 'good' to them, not in the sense that you are critiquing the brew based on your own rigid analysis.

I mentioned to that the green apple flavor they're tasting is from it being very young. Maybe they thought it was a green apple brown ale...? I guess I wouldn't have known why the taste was there before this forum.
