I was at the pool last summer with some home brew, and my great-aunt-in-law's boyfriend tried one of my home brews (Imperial Blonde Ale, slightly heavy for a hot summer day). He said "I dunno about this... you know what I really miss? Bud Ice. Shame I haven't had it in a long while"
Me- "Bud Ice? I didn't know AB made an 'Ice' version of Bud?"
Him- "Oh no, no, no. I would take a large glass of Ice and fill it with Budweiser. Really set the flavor off."

I about dropped my bottle. Guy must not actually like any beer at all.
They do make bud ice and it's a 1$ for a 22 in the bodega on my corner. I've had and enjoyed many on hot summer nights on the stoop with friends when feeling lazy and cheap.

I haven't actually seen the show so I don't know what their meth making equipment looks like. Does it really resemble a homebrew rig? Because people seeing my setup and going " this looks like breaking bad!" is becoming the #1 most frequent reaction I get anymore

The first few seasons of Breaking Bad used traditional lab equipment. Bunson burners and pyrex flasks and jars. Then he the cartel recruited him he had large stainless steel vessels. But at that point it looked like a full size chemical facility, not unlike something you would see at a 3M or DuPont facility. I guess for the casual observer its easiest thing that they can visually relate to.

Though I think on that show he harps sanitation as much as everyone in home brewing does.

This would be more effective than your approach, "yeah you're a newb." Followed by no explanation or anything This just comes off as you simply feel like name calling or tooting your own horn about your time brewing. It degrades from the forum for the person insulted and all others who have to read the poor conversation. With the former approach you will be more likely to actually be listened to, rather than just written off as a dbag. Unfortunately upon first seeing this statement I let myself get dragged in and responded just as poorly.
It was Brewer - with a capital B. Anyone can get brewer status, that's a piece of cake. Brewer status is only obtained once you've made a delicious american light lager. Good luck.

Ahhh with a capital B I see it now. It is a shame I will never obtain that at this rate because currently I don't like American light lagers, the same way some people don't like IPAs I guess. I do thank you though kind sir for wishing me luck, but as I don't enjoy them, I won't be brewing one any time soon. Maybe if my palate changes in a few years I will get into them though, who knows, so thanks for the wish of luck.

Anyway back on topic since we dropped that whole thing already...

My brother during a mash," it doesn't really smell like beer"
