Currently, I mostly mash/brew lagers (pilsners) using a freezer with a temperature control for fermentation and lagering. I mostly follow German pilsner recipes such as Bitburger and Warsteiner as well as Pilsner Urquell. I have also often brewed a modified Steam Whistle (Brewery in Toronto). I have also recently brewed a Westvleteren clone and a Flanders Red clone (Rodenbach).

    Hi Bottoms_Up, sorry I don't think it's possible to find this in Toronto. I lived in europe for
    a few years and had access to it from time to time in beer boutiques in Paris and it's my
    present lack o...

    I look forward to seeing how this continues to evolve but I'm planning a re-brew for next week.

    your question i...

    The joke started shortly after the drawing when people, for what ever reason, kept posting and
    getting "in" to the contest. Most had very few posts and probably did not understand that the
    prize had b...
