  • Posted in thread: Are My Standards Too High For Fresh Beer? on 12-10-2016 at 02:37 PM
    I agree with you 100%My experience is this.At EVERY one of the local home town craft bottle
    shops, much of the beer is older and possibly out of date. It's unfortunate but true because
    they are typica...

    You're a beer snob for wanting fresh beer? News to me. I'm a snob then.Not trying to speak for
    RM-MN, but I think the point you are, posssibly, missing is that a "one rule applies across the
    board to ...

  • Posted in thread: what beer were you pleasantly surprized with on 12-10-2016 at 01:30 AM
    Can't remember exactly how many years ago but, on one of the many business trips I made to LA,
    when staying over in Santa Monica at the sea shore motel I found the library alehouse. Until
    then I had o...

    I see it now and then, and would like to eliminate it as much as possible. What is one thing
    that you could do with any (or almost any) beer to prevent/improve this?Giving the beer enough
    time to carb...

    So its been 15 days now, it has started to clear so I need to get it racked. I took another
    gravity reading (just in case) and it hasn't moved below 1.000, hardly surprising. It also gave
    me an excuse...

    I think I puffed my first cigarette at about 9 years old. Then the next summer, '76, my mum
    caught me with a packet of cigs and went to town on my arse with a leather belt. '78 to '79 and
    my first yea...

    Those bittering hop additions are the epitomy of frugality:D That brewery knew how to eek out
    their money's worth.Interested to hear your impressions of the final product and whether it
    brings the nos...

    I would also just double check that you are using RO water for your bottle priming solution. I
    might have missed you saying that, but if not...Was thinking along similar lines myself but OP

    People keep referring to "Guinness Stout" but I think what you mean is "Guinness Drought"? The
    stout is strong, the drought is not strong.Guinness drought? Is that the one that's really
