That and some distillers used to use an old car radiator as part of their equipment. Eeek! So the lead solder would leech into the product. I've actually treated a case of heavy metal poisoning of this sort once. 'Course, the guy was such a hard-core alcoholic that it was hard to tell the difference between what was just baseline brain damage versus what was caused by the metals. Labs did show heavy metals, though, and we had to chelate him. He only got a little better...

I have been super fortunate. I have yet to have one person give me any really stupid comments on my beer. Not everyone has liked everything I have made, but it's usually something like they didn't like my IPA, but they are not big hop fans. More common comments have been:

them - "So, when are you going pro?"
me - "Uhhh, when someone else wants to finance it!"

(EDIT - I think I make some pretty decent beer, but I don't think it's commercial caliber - yet! )

Of course, that can backfire. At a party this weekend I brought a growler of DoubleBuzz Espresso Stout (Walker's recipe) and one of the guys that tried it asked me how much he would need to give me to get a brewery started.

The battle doesn't have to be lost there. Often, when I get that comment (or even make it), I reply with or tack on the following:

"It would be pretty difficult for me to **** a man, too, but that doesn't mean it's better."

I know it is not much of an analogy, but it gets the point across.

MY Dad: "I love this one!" (It was an IPA, I had given him a case of 5 or six different brews)
ME: Yeah, that one turned out well.
Dad: "I'm not so fond of the ones with the star on the cap"
ME: "umm....that is what you are drinking"
Dad:"OH!...well then...What about the IPA with the leaf on the cap?"
ME: "That was an american amber"
Dad:"....I'm confused"
ME: "where is the list I gave you that identifies each one?"
Dad: "what list?"
Me:"........you are a really hard person to get a review out of."

Buddy:"This tastes pretty good! When will you try something more advanced, like michelob?"

haha, that made me laugh..


I had another "here is your sign" comment this weekend...

"Seriously, im impressed, this is really good for something you made at home"
oh, only because I made it at home?
"No, im amazed you made this at home. Do you have a big vat and crap like that?"
Nope, its done all in my kitchen and sits in the closet in a 5 gallon glass "jug" until it gets bottled.
"That's amazing. You should get one of those 500 gallon vats"


Yeah, SWMBO won't mind that in the 2nd bedroom

Not to be rude, but the flow of this response made me think the next line would have been:

"It gets easier the more times you try it!"

I guess that's my stupid line for a thread about people saying stupid stuff.


Seriously though, I get these a lot:

"it tastes like beer!"
"it's not illegal to drink this, is it?"

usually friends and relatives that come over they usually like what I make and I have been complemented on my Catholic school girl Stout, that it was the best stout they have ever tasted, my version of the Amber ale, is really popular




*sigh


God bless my father in law.
