How do u folks pour a home brewed bottle? Slowly in a tilted glass? Thoughtlessly onto the bottom of the glass? No preference of pouring? Or drink straight from the bottle? Is there a right and wrong way? I pour slowly with glass tilted to avoid excessive foam.
Most people say leave the last X amount of beer in the bottle but what I do for a pale style ale is to slowly pour until I see the sediment approaching the mouth of the bottle and then stop. I don't like to waste a drop! Of course with darker beers this isn't possible so then I just leave a half ounce or so.
I tilt the glass and leave a little in the bottom of the bottle. I've drank straight from the bottle before when I didn't have a glass. It's not the end of the world but I like to let the beer breathe a little in a glass.
