They think anything dark is from the sludge at bottom of a barrel.

It has a possibility of being true if they harvested the yeast or may have poured fresh wort onto a yeast cake. But how likely would they have known that, much less understood why?

Not a chance! Arrrghhh!!

Those are "Good ol' boys". I alway tell people the difference between good ol' boys and rednecks is that good ol' boys raise livestock. Rednecks get romantically involved.

"Tastes just like beer" is one I got a half dozen times for my first batch.

Last year my LHBC had a competition, style 5...I brewed a Maibock. So at the meeting I was pouring a growler and I heard one guy remark to another "not enough caramel...I like caramel in a Maibock". Of course, Style 5A says "little to no caramelization".

I won the comp with it and later took 2nd BOS in a local comp.

Everyone has different tastes, but at least know what the **** you're talking about.

The other night I brought over 4 beers to a buddies house and left them there because he was drinking his stuff. I brought over admittedly not one of my best beers (The awful, to me, extract RIS I made like 2 months ago.) and I brought over one of my proudest beers.

I called him a week and a half later and asked him what he thought honestly. He told me they, "just tasted old. I don't know how else to describe it, not to knock your brewing, they were just old beers." Yeah they were old alright, neither of them were even brewed 4 months ago. And No, before anyone asks, they do not taste green at all anymore. I've sampled from each batch, heavily .

He is a devout Coors Light drinker. So that pretty much explains it. Rice hulls and Beech chips = beer to some.

Guess who is not getting any more HB?

I gave a 6'er of Hefe Weizen to three buddies from work who I thought were beer snobs. Two of them gave me really positive comments, intelligent feedback, and asked for more.

One of them described it as "kind of cloudy and yeasty."

Guess which one doesn't get homebrew anymore.

After a keg of my brown was emptied:
Him: Wow, your beer is really good, I don't think I've had one of your beers that I didn't like.... who knew you could brew homebrew that tasted good...
Me: (inside my head... WTF???)
