I cannot stand the taste of American pisswater. Give me rum anyday. Shine's even better; I love guzzling down that stuff and breathing fire out of my mouth thanks to a match!

"Federal investigators were set Tuesday to begin an investigation into a fire that ruined about 4 percent of America's yield of hops, used as flavoring in the brewing of beer and ale."

So the way I see it, there isn't any flavor in American beer anyway so what's the problem?

I agree with your stance on most american beers. There are some breweries, however, that produce great product though - Sweetwater (only in the southeast), Rogue, and Samuel Adams, just to name a few. Mostly it's the micro breweries that excel.

Moonshine is rough stuff - honestly, you can't really enjoy the taste of it, can you? I built a distillery a few years back and had a few test runs on it, but never got around to actually whipping up a batch of mash to distill. The best shine I ever had was peach flavored - got it from a guy in Copper Hill, TN. It went down relatively smooth...I guess as smooth as ethanol can. Be careful blowing flame balls - a few years back at a local college here, u[sic]ga, a frat nearly burned to the ground due to flaming spit tricks.

I like European lagers like Heineken (the light's pretty good), Warsteiner Lager, etc. If I have to drink North American brew, it's generally Labatt Blue, and if the place doesn't have it, then fine, Bud Light. At least it's made across the state in Saint Looey.

Do you get good results . or is it horrid swill ?
I love my homebrew!

It's really not that hard to make, and with $100-$200 in equipment you can really make some good stuff.

I like being able to experiment and make all different kinds of beer. I personally like strong beer (Imperial IPAs, Double IPAs, Barley Wines etc), so I have the ability to control that.

I currently have 5 beers in the closet, Raspberry Wheat (for the wife), Hefeweizen, Double Dry hopped IPA, Organic IPA, and an Oatmeal Stout.

Since it only costs approx $25 each batch of 55 bottles, it's way cheaper than buying beer (if you get quality beer that is).

Oh, if your homebrew isn't carbonated, then you probably didn't get a complete fermentation. The byproducts of fermentation are CO2 and alcohol. Do you know what kind of yeast you used?

Anyways, I love homebrewing, it's interesting, fun to do, cheap, and it's a great way to meet people.
