Default BBC Story on Homebrewing

From July, but my search did not indicate it had been posted before.

BBC NEWS | UK | England | Pricey pints inspire homebrewing

Curious about the way that they appear to be drinking straight out of what might have been the secondary fermenter at room temperature.

The British do have a fondness of undercarbonated room temperature beer. To be honest, for certain styles it's actually pretty good.

Cellar temperature does not equal room temperature, sir.

I love English cask ales myself, and a gently carbonated hand-pulled pint is heaven.

Ha! Those cheeky Brits are stealing our youtube pioneered technique - adding unboiled, unfiltered tap water directly to the LME and away she goes...

It looked like one guy was drinking right off of his kitchen counter. That would be room temp as far as I am concerned. I guess I am too "American". I'll certainly try a real ale if a bar has one on tap, but I like my beers around 40-45 and nicely carbed.

If you look, those plastic containers that look like fermenters (at least some I noticed) are actually serving vessels and they have a nipple/fitting on top allowing these to be carbonated. I have seen one or two mentions of them with pictures on this site over the last year or so.

Orfy drinks his at room temp, but it was rainy and cool when I was there.

Drinking your beer at room temp can be a real eye opener when it comes to beer flavor. There is nowhere for any off flavors or aromas to hide. I recommend everyone try it.

I love my Bavarian Wheat when it's cold, but I can't stand my own Irish Stout when it's right out of the fridge. I let it come to room temp then I open it.
