I've never had asafoetida, black cardamom or fenugreek in beer if that helps. Or black salt or
onion seeds. They are all tasty though.
Posted in thread: What beer style do you not like and why? on 12-28-2014 at 12:52 PM
Helles and Pils just bore me stiff. I was travelling through Bavaria and one of the highlights

Posted in thread: What's your best 'fast' brew beer? on 12-24-2014 at 09:02 AM
I've done a couple of milds served from cask in two weeks from brewing. OG around 1035-1038,
