Its your first batch. You're so excited. With an air of superiority, you tell all your friends, "So, Im brewing my own beer now. Yeah, got the first batch in the fermenter right now". Friend says, "Sweet bro! You'll have to let me try a sample when its ready". You idiotically reply, "Right on bro. I'll bring you a few bottles.."

Sound familiar? Well, you have this conversation with, oh 3 or 4 people and guess what? YOU'VE GIVEN AWAY ALMOST HALF YOUR BREW!!!:mad:

Dont let this happen to you! Do yourself a favor and KEEP IT A SECRET!!:D

That's when you update your friends with "this batch isn't too good, I'll let you know when I have one that is"...

Within a year you'll have homebrew stacked to the ceiling and throwing parties to get rid of it just so you can brew more.

Its a great hobby!

I agree. I'm at the point where I look for reasons to brew. I invite people to hit my taps so I can refill them with something new. Good times...

Give it to the dog, then keep the bottles. Everyone wins.

the new aluminum bottles that bud does are capped, not twist off. in a pinch i would think that you could use those bottles if properly sanitized.

not to mention it would be the first time BMC had good beer in one of their bottles:drunk:
