One thing we need to stop doing is telling people that there are "absolute no noes", especially
when it is nothing more than anecdotal information. I have never, ever tasted a grassy off
flavour from ...

I dunno, I think it's easy to make beer that won't poison you or offend the average drinker,
but in my 8-9 years of brewing maybe 5 batches per year, I have only had one or two batches I
was really pr...

This interesting experiment regarding long duration vs. short duration dry hopping suggests

methods and ha...

flavor I hav...

So I cooled one and tried it this evening just to see how it was coming along. To my
disappointment, it tastes and feels like a barley wine. It's super heavy and has way too much
