I have been drinking my own beer over the past few weeks and decided to open one of the store bought buds I used to enjoy. It tasted like that smell at the funeral home. I didn't think my beer was that much better but it is and I'm new at this so ether I'm great at making beer or there very bad at making beer. I think I'll just wait for my next batch to be ready before drinking any more beer.

I am with you Vanman-I used to drink a lot of Mudlight when I was pulling a long session with my brother in his barn...After brewing my beer, and drinking a couple batches, I have trouble drinking it, as it has no flavor or character. I do still drink commerical beers like Bass, Killians, Guinnes, Murphy's and Sam Adams, as well as some of the quasi local brews like Wachusett, but now I am into my homebrews and any of the more handcrafted specialty brews that can be found at good packages stores...

Welcome to the miracle of homebrewing. When I started doing it, the thing that I was most skeptical about was when I was told by a number of people that my very first batch would be the best beer I had ever tasted. I thought they were just messin' with me.

I was amazed when it turned out they were right. How can that be? I really don't know, but I'm sure going to enjoy the ride.

Commercial brews such as Bud have their place (just what that is in the case of Bud, I'm not exactly sure ), but I don't think you are alone in your experience of going back to it after drinking your own beer. You will likely become a lot more discerning in your choices when you do buy commercial beer in the future.

Happy Brewing!

My first batch was swill! I got better at it. Living in the PNW makes for high standards.

the only thing bud is (was) good for was the bikini babes in the commercials back in the day...

I guess Coors light had the twins last year or whenever...

but not for drinking! I just tried a "bud select" that they're advertising as if it were special, but it's just water too...

Haven't brewed in a couple of months. Brewday is tomorrow. No particular recipe, just black and strong !
Bought a twelve pack of Miller the other night. I appreciate the fact that there's no real flavor to get in the way of my alcohol enjoyment, which, after a couple of shots of tequila, seems abundant . They really do have a fine product. It's consistently weak and tasteless. That takes precision control at all levels of the manufacturing process.
Guess I'm just jealous.

Confession time: I actually like Miller Lite. I can't explain why, but I do. Whatever they did when they invented that stuff, they hit on something.

Regarding Bud-- I don't want to start a big argument if there are any AB lovers out there,-- but I'll tell you, I've consumed many, many American canoe beers in my life (Old Style, Special Export,High Life, Pabst, Schlitz, Stroh's, you name it) and I can't for the life of me figure out how they sell so much Bud and even worse Bud Light. No taste, no color, high price... hmmm, yeah, let's go out and buy gallons of the stuff, right?

My beer of choice among the BMC beers is Miller Lite and then Canadian. I drink BMC beers from time to time and find nothing wrong with them if you don't expect too much in the way of flavor.

I like Coors just becase it is from Colorado (my favorite place). otherwise it has very few redeeming qualities.
