My favorite is my CDA, it's the only beer I've ever deemed worthy of a name, "It's called CDA".

But the most technically accurate and overall best beer I've ever made is the current batch of Helles. I have half a keg left and I'm on thin rations.
The power to tax, once conceded, has no limits; it contains until it destroys. I was not joking when I told them to dig into their own pouches. It may not be possible to do away with government sometimes I think that government is an inescapable disease of human beings. But it may be possible to keep it small and starved and inoffensive and can you think of a better way than by requiring the governors themselves to pay the costs of their antisocial hobby?

A Victory Headwaters clone. If it was placed right beside the original no one would be able to tell the difference. I love my Citra hops. My local HBS hooked me up with 3lbs of Citra leaf hops for $13 a pound. What an amazing price for hops that you can't find on the internet.

My best 2 have been yoopers 60 min ipa recipe and edworts kolsch. I have yet to make a beer I was completely happy with though. I guess I am a perfectionist when it comes to brewing

A BDSA that I has been in bottles for almost a year now. Yum.. Only two 22oz bottles left. I really will hate to see them go.

My first go at BIAB. A Dark English Mild - very nice and balanced...

I would say my IPA has been my favorite. It's like SNPA only double the hops. I did just bottle my version of DFH 120min and while bottling I sipped on the gravity sample and I can't wait to have this one carbed.
Primary: too damn hot
Bottled: 120min Clone, Winter Bock, 90min clone.
Yeast Bank: Generation 5 1056, Generation 2 1028, Bottle Harvested Ommegang Abbey Ale.

My Baltic Porter made this winter is probably the best beer I have done. It's the first beer I've made where I wouldn't change a thing.

Second would be the next batch I made, Arthur's Revenge, a Russian Imperial Stout. A former coworker of mine wanted me to help make a batch of Guiness for her boyfriend for Christmas only to cancel on me at the last minute. I took the base grains and yeast and added some extra specialty grains and ended up with a fantastic beer. The RIS might end up passing my Baltic Porter since it's only 3 months old and will take well to aging.

Believe it or not, my best ever was a Festa kit beer called Czech Pilsner... was the absolute best beer I have ever tasted, let alone made.

Now if you were to ask the best I have ever made myself then I would have to say a Helles I made last year would be the best. I won a gold for
it last year in Montreal.
