Is Guinness Draught the most "sessionable" session beer?

I am on vacation in Cambodia and have found a pub that has canned Guinness Draught with the widget.

I like Guinness Draught a lot. It isn't my favorite, but I enjoy it. Most beers, even those...

Cans are definitely better, assuming the beer going into them is good. At the moment, though, it is mostly crap macro breweries using them so they have a bad rap.

Wouldn't matter if he did. The beer would still be fine to drink.

1. No.

Congrats!



Leaving it in the bottle for a long time won't cause it to overcarb. That is a product of how much yeast is still active and how much sugar is left unattenuated.

Agreed on...

Yeah, I gave up way too much of my first batch. I am being more stingy now. Perhaps once I have a continuous pipeline going I will become more giving again.

12" should be high enough and I doubt the diameter matters. What does matter is how much of a sample you are putting in the tube. If it is bottoming out continue to add beer to the tube until it...
