  • Posted in thread: Worst Commercial Beer You've Ever Had? on 10-04-2012 at 12:26 PM
    I've never had steel reserve, but I doubt it, or any other beer in this thread is as bad as Sam

    There is a lot of talk on what kind of vessel to age the Flanders in. Plastic buckets permeate
    to much air, whereas an airlock on a glass carboy doesn't let any air in. I've read about Raj's

    worth. I did the s...

    oh and in asia they call it rambic. i am assuming that there it is made from full grown sheep,

    mushroom cloud billowing out of the top. I left about four fingers of headspace below the

    Are there any wineries in north queensland?- i got one of mine from a brewery and one from a
