    clearing floaties

    Honestly, I don't know how to get rid of floaties once they are in the bottle. I just drink it - which grosses out some people. For me, its easier to throw a grip of Irish moss into the boil - not a fan of lecitihin, isinglass or other artificial finings. My beers are obviously homebrewed...

    What is proper way to dry hop?...

    I've had good success with both whole hop leaves in either a grain sock or a stainless sleeve - holds about an ounce... So far, I get great aroma after about a week in the secondary, either bottled or kegged.

    My first beer (2 years later)

    Interesting. I haven't had any metallic tastes in bottled beers, but the Mrs. and I accidentally killed a Boston Lager clone (done with ale yeast), and it developed a RANCID taste after a couple weeks. It was passible for a while, but then it got hideous - like someone put a couple rank pennies...
