How do u folks pour a home brewed bottle? Slowly in a tilted glass? Thoughtlessly onto the bottom of the glass? No preference of pouring? Or drink straight from the bottle? Is there a right and wrong way? I pour slowly with glass tilted to avoid excessive foam.

just pour it carefully and leave about an inch in the bottle. The important thing is not to move the bottle around a lot before you pour, cheers!!!!

Most people say leave the last X amount of beer in the bottle but what I do for a pale style ale is to slowly pour until I see the sediment approaching the mouth of the bottle and then stop. I don't like to waste a drop! Of course with darker beers this isn't possible so then I just leave a half ounce or so.

I have poured them all different ways. I find that after a few, maybe to many, that I dont leave any in the bottom.

I tilt the glass and leave a little in the bottom of the bottle. I've drank straight from the bottle before when I didn't have a glass. It's not the end of the world but I like to let the beer breathe a little in a glass.

AN INCH?!?!?

Dude, are you crazy? An inch in a standard bottle is a lot of beer.

Try half a centimeter...

Just pour all of it and get an appreciation of yeast tastes.
