Posted in thread: Bitter commercial beer on 09-14-2013 at 01:31 PM
Would a fridge that's too cold cause this? The cooling element has a good buildup of ice on it
and needs to be defrosted.I find drinking beer at too cold a temperature accentuates the
bitterness and n...

Maybe you're having a reverse lupulin shift? :D Your analogy to soda water makes me think of
carbonic bite, but I would think most commercial breweries do not have overcarbing problems
with their beer...

Not even close. Not sure where you came up with this idea, but ambers and IPA's are
WWWWWAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY different.As far as BJCP categories are concerned you're most
certainly right, but bas...

Zoe and Red Rocket are two good examples that come to mind. Though I kind of feel like there's
such a large cross-over between Amber ales and IPAs/PAs that the style is a bit redundant.

22 ounce bottles.... 50% time savings.I bottled for a LONG time.... still do some. Nothing

but it's nice h...

1) Accidents can happen regardless of how careful someone is. It just takes one mistake or slip

take a cha...

Some of the suggestions for 'worst' are comical. I guess I'm just glad that most of you haven't
experienced true horror. Try this one on for size: Budweiser & Clamato Chelada. It's Bud heavy,

I've never seen them sold anywhere but NB, but I believe the old ones were produced by
Fermentap.The new model looks pretty sweet but I'm also having a hard time pulling the trigger
with that price ta...
Posted in thread: Using pellet hops or loose leaf hops for dry hopping in primary? on 08-24-2013 at 03:10 PM

they tend to stay on top of the beer so you'll need to rack beneath that layer to avoid sucking
up any hop...
