I agree. I can't wait for the hoppy extreme beer trend to be over. They give me worse hangovers, take the enamel off my teeth, and generally aren't any fun to drink- why would you want to be in...

In May I was at one of my fellow Troegs brewer's wedding, and he brewed a Kolsch-ish thing with American hops for it. Two half kegs of that, plus bottles of Pale Ale, Sunshine Pils, and Hopback. ...

What he said. DMS precursors still hang around, but if you had a good boil, then they should be minimal, and also most pasteurizers at big breweries are flash pasteurizers, they heat up and cool...

Yes. I am sick and tired of stupid huge beers, especially anything with "IPA" in the title. Give me a blonde ale.

2. We add them, and then there's a 5 minute...

I'm in the process of doing a blackberry lambic/sour beer. 1.5 pounds of ground-up blackberries. I figured it would be a good break from the ordinary (and overdone) cherry and raspberry beers.
