A true interest?

"Dude, I wanna drink some of your beer!"

"You mean, like, beer I bought or beer I made?"

"Haha, beer you made."

"Do you like stouts?"

"Yeah, I had Guinness Extra Stout the other day. It was awesome."

"Well, mine's like ten times better than that. I normally don't say that. And stupid question anyways, cause it's not a stout. It's a porter. A coffee porter. You'll like it"

Finally, I think someone may have more than a feigning interest in my beer. Feigning interest is exactly what friends are for. Although he's a friend, he may be genuinely interested. I wasn't even talking about beer when he brought it up.

Updates, updates...

RIS is doing well in the barrel, gonna leave it for another month or so.

IPA is being dry hopped with Columbus and Cascade(no Amarillo at the store).

Thinking about ditching the cooler system and investing in a stainless, heatable mash tun. Expensive, but it allows for multi step mashes, which could mean increased efficiency.
