As homebrewers we often find it extremely difficult to believe that most of the world drink beer (megaswill lager) because it's a refreshing, savoury (most other alcohol is sweet) low-alc drink that gets them pissed. They honestly and truly do not want a lot of flavour in their beer.Jon's Brew said:Ha! Yeah totally off topic, but I think people drink lagers becasue they're easier to drink 700 of. Not saying they're bad, but I appreciate beer for complexity of FLAVOUR, not it's ability to make me drunk.
So we insult the megaswill drinker for their ignorance, when it's out arrogance (founded on a knowledge-base they do not have, or want) where the conflict of interest arises.
And, find me a cork-sniffing, hop-head, brewing legend who can honestly say they didn't spend their years of 15-25 sucking down the very lagers they now abhor and I'll show you someone who's father is a professional brewer.
Jon, I ferment in 20L willow brand jerrys because they fit in my fermenting fridge and are cheap. There, on topic!
