What would we do without lists telling us what we should buy? Without these kind of articles I'd be sitting at home with an empty fridge.

There is some merit to calling some beers a session IPA. I brewed two ales this summer that came in around 3.5% abv, but used 7 oz of hops and tasted like an IPA of twice the abv. So for the sake of...

I started doing this about a year ago. I usually only pour about a pint to drink, but it definitely did help me realize I was fermenting my beers too cool and carbing too high for my own tastes.

I'm a bigger threat to craft beer profits than any big brewery, at least when it comes to my own beer buying habits.

I don't think I've bought more than $50 worth of craft beer in the past year,...

Doesn't Brett take a while to work? I've never used it, so I can't really comment on that. But if you want it dried out pretty quick, an active starter of Wy3711 will take it down into the single...

Did you get a good hot break/cold break? I have an English IPA that used S-04 (another very flocculent strain) and it's still very cloudy. My guess is it's not the yeast in either case, just...

Alright, I think I'm going to change the hopping a little. Take the flameout additions down to 1 oz each and add a 5 minute addition of 1 oz each Columbus/Centennial.

I dry hop my session IPA (OG of 1.038 ) with 3 oz. I really like a mix of centennial, simcoe, and Columbus, but its really hard to go wrong with straight cascade.

I've never had to do that. Just beer name and style category entered.

I've entered an 8% abv saison into competition and had it place. If it tastes like a saison, it'll get judged like a saison.
