No offense taken, he's an idiot and a dumbass. I told him I would help him get started. He didn't take me up my offer so its his loss.

I told him in that there was probably nothing wrong with it and he shouldn't have dumped it out. Personally, I think it was a fleeting moment of coolness. He didn't seem to care to talk about the experience.

You should say you distill it from whiskey (Canadian or Irish, not some corn whiskey) and that you add hops to help get the alcohol out. Then laugh devilishly in your head while they believe you.

Wow. I mean, that beer was so green he probably pissed green urine after that.

Today while ice fishing with a bunch of Bud and Budlight drinkers;

Guy: What are you drinking?

Me: "A homebrew. Its an Oktoberfest. Want one?" (I was curious to see the response)

Guy: "I don't want a whole one, but I'll try a sip" *sips*. "Eh, not bad, but I don't like the aftertaste."

Me: "Yeah, my beer is pretty good, but its no Budlight." (tongue in cheek)

Guy: *Laughs* "Yep" (he took my comment at face value)

The irony is that it's much more difficult to make something that looks and tastes like a BMC than the brown ale you (generically speaking) have on hand -- ever mention that and the battle is lost, because obviously you just aren't able to make "good beer."

Another classic conersation....

- No, moonshine can make you go blind.
- I that stuff on the bottom dangerous ?
- No, just dont pour and drink it, it tastes bad.
5 mins later: Can i have another ?

Actually, it's nigh impossible to get blind off of moonshine. Most is made with corn and barley, perhaps sugar. Now, brewers add all of these to brews that call for them, and we all know that you'll never go blind off of homebrew. Drinking moonshine is no worse for you than drinking the mash it came from...In fact, since distillation removes many of the bad alcohols, it's actually quite a bit better for you.

This myth comes from back in the days of prohibition, wherein some unscrupulous shiners added methylated spirits to their own, which was cheaper for them to produce. If you were to distill your own, there is almost zero danger from methanol etc, unless you're fermenting wood dust .

As for me:
Me: Hey mom, why don't you give this beer a try? It's a belgian blonde, light but tasty.
The old lady: No thanks, I don't really like beer except like some Stella every now and then.
Me: ummmmm....
....

Female friend upon drinking aged cider: Ewwww! this tastes just like beer!

My brother said he preffered Coor's Light over my Texas Blonda Ale. I wanted to slap him so bad.

I get "this is kind of chewy and has a wierd aftertaste" I gave them a really well
done amber ale all grain. Before I knew really good beer that is what I would have said too. Ha!

It depends. I'm guessing that freeze distillation was more common, and that type does not remove bad alcohols (methanol and fusel alcohols).

Using fractional distillation you can get rid of all six of them (sources: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Methanol http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fusel_alcohol). Although freeze distillation would dangerously concentrate all of these (ESPECIALLY methanol) as they all freeze between -36 and -97 C.

A lot of that is true- The rest of people going blind if from Distillers using lead solder and pipes in their equipment leeching out lead into the alcohol.

Discarding heads and tails will rid 90% of all Fusels.
