Thank you.Is it just me that thinks this thread was derailed a long time ago.
Leos - you make good German style beers. I would love to hear your thoughts on this....
...If you purchase a bad beer from the retailer, inform the retailer. Once beer leave the brewery, it is beyond brewery control. You can inform them about your experience but do not expect replacement from them...Some would be glad to hear of any problems, but from some you could expect a yawn at the vey least...same goes for distributors. Or in some cases, worse.
A number of years ago I called the NJ distributor for an established and very respected West Coast brewer, after several times having a less than satisfying experience with both bottles and drafts of what is normally an excellent product. I was not only brushed off by the distributor, but firmly schooled by his response: "I only sell this crap, I don't make it, so once it's delivered and paid for, how it tastes is not my fscking problem. His words.
I guess I shouldn't have been too surprised...his company was also NJ's largest AB distributor. LOL
And, homoeccentricus, I wish I had been raised with the metric system. It makes sooo much more sense than the ridiculous bodged together system that we still limp along with here in the states.
Move to Belgium! We have beer, chocolate, waffles, the metric system, and cobblestones. What else do you need?
If I ever decide to go expatriate Belgium is high on my list.
Still wouldn't help with the fact that I now have to convert everything from the measures I 'know' intuitively to the generally easier to use and more logical metric.
Very dependent upon the brewery. I had a beer from a local brewery that was horribly sour, when I informed them they did not really care about it. They offered me a refund, but no questions about where the beer was purchased or what the bottling date was. I was very unimpressed and have not bought one of their beers since.

If I owned a brewery id be looking for someone who can run a flight of stairs with a 55 sack on one shoulder then weld a stainless sanitary fitting. Id want a person who can find joy cleaning kegs and thought creating recipes was boring.
Thanks for all the input. It looks like my options for the time being (other than Briess) are the CaraRed and Chateau CaraRuby, so I guess I'll try both out and go from there.
