OK i just finished bottling a brew kit that i recieved from beer-wine.com. I see that everyone has name for their beer. I need to know how you classify a beer. How do you know if you have an english ale,pale ale, red pale ale , red ale, porter.etc...I have the charlie papazian book and i didnt come across how to classify a beer. PLEASE CLARIFY THIS FOR ME.
What would this be. Steeped crystal malt, 2 cans of amber lme, uses hallertauer hops. and brewers ale yeast...this was my first batch with i tested after 2 days of being in the bottle to make sure it was being carbonaated and it tasted great...no more commercail beers for me..
