So I've been brewing 5 gallon extract batches for almost a year now and I'm sure, as most of you, I give a portion to friends and family to try. My reasoning is I like to get feedback so I can figure out where to make changes in my recipes to become a better homebrewer (plus its nice to get a pat on the back when a recipe comes out good). I'd say as of right now if I get 2 cases from a 5 gal batch I probably give away a case between some of my family members, close friends, guys I work with, and even mail some out to friends in other states (which tends to get expensive). I tell everyone I have no problem giving out the beer, just give me some honest feedback in return. My issue is I get feedback from hardly anyone! I'd be happy with acknowledgment that they at least tried the beer at this point!! Lol Am I delusional and think my beer comes out good and everyone else is afraid to tell me it sucks, or are people really that inconsiderate that they can't tell you what they though of the free beer you gave them that costed you time and money to make? Now I do it cause I love to brew, but am I a sucker for sharing the fruits of my labor?? Anyone else have the same problem??
