    You need to harness the power o' fermentation, prisoners use raisins and shit for hooch; sugar's cheap--even wine juice, I used to set the fermenter on top o' the fridge where you could use gravity to get a good shot o' young wine right outta the hose.

    btw, on various 22oz/650mL fresh hoppers 2nite, they're in season.

    New Belgium + Ben & Jerry's: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ale.
    http://www.newbelgium.com/beer/chocolate-chip-cookie-dough

    TASTING NOTES
    VISUAL
    Golden and bright with perhaps some small particulate. Light wispy white foam.
    AROMA
    All things decadent: vanilla, caramel, and chocolate (baker's chocolate, hot chocolate powder). Essentially straight up cookie dough! Slight caramel malt and malted milk balls, very slight cherry and almond in the background.
    FLAVOR
    Starts fairly sweet, then a slight bitterness comes in to finish with a mellow sweetness.
    MOUTHFEEL
    Creamy and certainly coating, it has a medium-light body that moves to a thin and slightly astringent finish.
    BODY
    Medium-light

    All of New Belgium's beers taste like ass. Fat Tire was some of the most bitter, skunky shit I ever had.

    How hard is it to make good beer? Apparently too hard, judging by the glut of shitty 'micro-brewery' beer in the US.

    And buying anything that says 'ben & jerry' (2 kikes) is, ugh, less than smart.

    Harder than wine making, ale, that is; you wanna make a good German beer--lager or pils, that's hardest of all. Still, not too hard for a thirsty GWM. I used to make better beer than I could buy but the quality ingredients cost nearly as much as buying quality beer. You need to enjoy the science/art of brewing and have the time, space and equipment.

    There's a huge glut of micro-breweries in the US, fortunately a small percentage are good. Hardest-core beer-nerds I know are American.

    I used to try imported beers and beers made far away, like in Washington State, but Texas heat made these beers skunky by the time they got here, so i explored Texas beers. Real Ale Brewing in Blanco, Texas, provides some good stuff.

    You can make passable beer with cheap equipment and ingredients, but the results are mostly going to reflect how much you spend. "Food Grade" doesn't mean jack shit in regards to 5 gallon buckets and plastic carboys; you're going to taste the plastic. The fact that even shit brewers like Annheuser-Busch tend to brew in copper kettles also make me suspect that using a cheap steel or aluminum stockpot from Walmart might lead to tiny bits of that metal leaching out into your beer and giving off flavors. Shit, maybe that's what Heinekin does; don't even tell me I'm the only one who thinks that shit has a strong metallic aftertaste.

    Fuck anyone who spends the extra money on foreign piss that they think is somehow more sophisticated then drinking cheap piss made over here. Corona and Heinekin are the worst offenders when it comes to awful swill bought primarily by pretentious fuckwits who have no idea what a good beer tastes like. Dos Equis, Becks and Stella all deserve honorable mentions. These are brought in for working class people who think that people will see them drinking like the upper crust and assume they're cultured and financially secure. It's like a slightly higher grade of the same symptom with niggers buying Coors Lite in cans because millionaires don't be drinking St Ides and shit, yo.
