    Any Beers in India to try

    I had Maha Raja the other night when I went out for Indian food. It was strange tasting it side by side with Kingfisher. The Maha Raja was an Indian pilsner but it had a huge malt character to it, compared with Kingfisher anyway.

    Witbier Blue Balls Belgian Wit (Blue Moon Clone)

    I'm planning on brewing BierMuncher's extract version of this brew in the next couple of days, and I've never used flaked wheat before.

    Soon to be kegging question

    I'm finally making the jump from bottling to kegging, and I wanted to see if anyone else had tried this before. I'm kind of cramped for space in my fridge, as I am having to share my food fridge. Is it possible to lay a corny keg horizontally and still dispense beer? I haven't gotten my...
