Unless you are brewing a style with a unique yeast derived flavour just stick with dry yeast. Belgians, hefeweizens, sours and some english styles go with liquid yeasts. If you are brewing American...

Initially this beer was waaaaay too hoppy. Delicious but a crazy amount of styrian goldings. I originally kegged but bottled the last slightly cloudy bit and let it sit in the back of the closet...

Ron, I just listened to you on the Beersmith podcast. I enjoyed it but "vintage beer" is way to big a topic for only 1 hour. I'm sure you could have talked about brown malt for twice that and I...

This is great, thanks. I'll give this a try. And where have you been? Your blog hasn't been updated in months. I was starting to think you'd gone pro and stopped homebrewing:)
