Not all of us can grow beards, so we gotta just do what we can to protect ourselves.

Relax, my good friends. Can't a guy get distracted by a sexy wife . . . New Years Eve . . . And a Barley Wine hangover?! I am pleased to report, however, that the bottled Houblonmonstre is very carbonated(and actually my clearest and best beer to date!). Two things come to mind: 1.) The beer that I used as the "sampler" was bottled with a cork. perhaps a no-no. 2.) I could have gotten that beer to the fridge before conditioning was complete. In any event, I've taken some good stuff from this thread. Hydrometer is next purchase, and I gotta just keep at it. Thanks, men.

I will excuse you this once... For a good reason.

The more I think about it though. Your Houblonmostre is probably bad and you should ship it all to me for evaluation and disposal.

Always make sure conditioning is complete before you refrigerate. 3 weeks to condition, 1 week to settle and clarify.

I'm glad it turned out good.

Snaps, I would love to share this with you. I am in a very rural setting and I am either surrounded by Bud Light drinkers or the infrequent hipster that drinks the occasional Heffe, or lighter Ale. No, my friend, I have few friends who are ready for tasty beers. I'm the weirdo in my circle. They put-up with me as much as I put-up with them. Guys give me a good, hoppy, session Ale recipe. I need to build a bridge for my fellas.

Read this and take heed:

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f66/bee-...ale-ale-31793/

It is set up for all of the "normal" methods of brewing. It is drinkable by all except the most hard-bitten Busch Light drinkers.

You don't need to read very far past the first page. If you try to read the whole thread, you will spend almost as much timie as it takes to make a batch.
