Amen Major. I had a guy ask to come over and see my Brutus system, ask questions and such as he was looking to build his own.  He tasted a couple of my beers and here are some of his comments to a tee...Ill never forget because I spent the evening thinking...wow I never met a homebrewer like that before. What a pompous ass.

"Clean IPA very good, but I do this in mine and its better for it"
"Youre better than 99% of the brewers I know"...me:"oh thanks man" him: "Im the 1% better though"
"Ive been brewing for 7 years I know all there is to know about brewing, hes adjusting his water for this reason, but I know all there is to know about water and I dont do it for a reason."
to his gf: "THis is the second best pumpkin beer we've had huh sweety?"....his gf turns her head and takes another sip of mine and says "yeh"

Lol comical. Funny thing was, hes over in MY HOUSE asking me questions about MY SYSTEM, making these comments. Then when he left he said, maybe we can do a collaborative batch or something. Never understood people like this, if you know all there is know, then where is the fun in doing it. Get over yourself.

You never asked him to come back and bring beer?  Hell he must of had beer of the gods.  You should get the same chance to critique his brew...  hell call him tonight and ask him to come back and bring samples.  Update the thread in a few days.

I cannot believe some opinionated barfly has caused a thread to go on this long.

I knew the "Homebrewers (insert eyeroll) tag would catch some attention. :P

When I was a CFHBer I always thought we could have chosen a better logo.  But talk about truth in advertising...   ;)
