At the homebrew store, Paul is looking for gear.
Paul: Where are the tamales pots?
Homebrew store employee: Wellll, of course you could just brew in granny's old dented tamales pot... dip an immersion heater in the bathtub... But it's a lot more fun to brew in a shiny chrome high tech wonder of a pot!
Paul: Will it make my beer taste better?
Homebrew store employee: Uh...well...no, not exactly, for beginners the pot --
Other homebrew store employee: Of course if will taste better! Eyesore amber anyone?
