    While I agree with the latter twoparagraphs, the first statement although true is not the point
    of why traditionally people use invert over non-invert. There seems to be a split perception on
    this in ...

    At least one source I have read says that most likely the first historical IPAs brewed at
    Burton on Trent would have been 1.050 OG, and would have been 100+ IBUs since they were hopped
    at a level equi...

    I think this is the result of what I call the craft brew "arms race". More hops, more alcohol,
    stronger yeast flavors. Everyone is trying to outdo everyone else.A problem with this is that
    people new ...

    This is EXACTLY the spirit of the OP! Based on some posts in other threads, I wanted to get a
    discussion going about "session" IPAs!:mug:Well, Cheers then!History aside, I think that just
    by virtue of...

    Just to nitpick (and incite), the BJCP guidelines are nonsense. IPA as originally intended, and
    indeed for the majority of its history as a style, was pretty much a session ale. The
    well-known 'fact' ...

    I use these for all my cask ale needs. Ignore the Party Star Deluxe Tap System and all that
    nonsense and just vent the excess CO2 at the top and just dispense using gravity. You can see
    that Wells sel...

    Had my eye on this one for awhile, Bob, thanks so much for posting it. Think I'll give it a go
    on Sunday. I'll let you know how it turns out. Ha, just checked my logs and I've done 30 brews
    in 2010 so...

    The sources out there indicate that spruce beer dominated the beer scene in Quebec at the time,
    and it seems that this would have been made by boiling spruce twigs in water and then using
    that as the ...

    Yeah, the Barclay Perkins blog is a fantastic resource. Though they balance out the depth of
    research with poor editing in many cases. Obviously should read 2.92.

    Flyangler, WLP023 in a porter seems counterintuitive but potentially really interesting. Any
    tasting notes?
