The Pub / Re: Are some beers better than others?

Very subjective.  Light American lagers = not one of my favorite styles.  I am also not a big fan of sour beers, doppelbocks or wheat beers.  Now, I have had examples of all of these beers that I enjoyed and were good, but I would not seek them out, order them in bar or brew them often.  I have brewed some wheat beers, mostly for other people though.

It's really what tastes good to you.  I will agree that it bums me out to have people refuse to drink anything but fizzy, yellow beer.  I am not trying to change their drinking habits, just trying to get them to sample another type of beer.  I don't pressure anyone into drinking my homebrew, but when we have a party, I don't go out and buy BMC beer for people either.  Thankfully most people I have met in CO enjoy craft beer.

I agree it depends on your taste.  Most big commercial beers like Bud are very well made.  Personally, I would take a Bud over a Miller any day.  Don't really care for Miller products at all.  Coors is ok to me, but not great.  All these commercial beers have very little beer flavor to me.  I don't diss them as a beer snob, but rather I choose not to drink them because for me, they are flavorless empty beer calories.  Also, they are not that much cheaper these days than craft beer.  I see Bud in most stores in CO for $5-6 a six pack unless it's on special.  As for light beer, I don't care for any of it.  Just don't like them - BL, CL, ML, Sam Adams Light, etc. 

I would never call someone out for drinking what they like.  If you like it, drink it.

Never 2 at once, but I have done 2 batches in one day.  Once the first one is boiling, I mash in for the second batch and go from there.  Only done it a few times.

Going to be racking a Munich Dunkel and then putting a Schwarzbier on the yeast in the next week.
