It was definitely a bitter, over-hopped taste (back of the tongue after 1-2 seconds). Not
astrigent at all.I think I'm just being picky about wanting the perfect tasting beer. Other
people tasted it a...

I've brewed about 10 times now, but this was my first time carbing in a keg with sugar. Brewed

Posted in thread: What's your cost of a 5 gallon batch? on 11-08-2013 at 07:30 AM
I used to buy the $40 kits from Brewer's Best, then switched over to the Barley & Vine clones

local home br...
