Bananas aren't really good until about Thursday.



Yeah, for sure. And on a different note, I really like duct tape. It's pretty useful for stuff.
Penalty!!...5 yards for delay of thread.  NOT an "unpopular" brewing opinion.


Ok in that case, duct tape's adhesive is actually derived from beaver anal gland secretions.

Wow.... that's a blast from the past!

I don't want to brew sour beers anymore. Too many crap sour and Brett beers out there. I don't want to be mixed in that noise.

Yep, same here. I'll buy an occasional bottle of sour something but I'm done brewing it. Just not for me to brew .

That doesn't seem logical to me. If the rest is crap, it's much easier to shine if you're good...

We're not selling them anyways. Most commercial IPA is crap (and by that I generally mean "not super-fresh when I find them"), so I brew my own instead. I think the same thing applies here to an extent.

As far as the sour thing goes, I'm not into it enough to make it worth the months to years on time investment for a batch that will take me years to consume. I've decided to focus on quick-soured Berliners and really get my technique honed in there. I enjoy drinking those in quantity, so it's worth the effort. I can easily reserve a gallon for long-term aging with some gueuze dregs to satisfy my needs for those more complex sours.

I may never brew a batch larger than six gallons and feel okay about that.

If it moves but shouldn't, add duct tape.
If it should move but doesn't, add WD-40.

My unpopular brewing opinion is in too many craft beers the main purpose of hops is to camouflage flaws in the brewing process.
