    Propane Burner Issue *bummer*

    I started the night off super excited and now I'm just bummed. I finally fired up my turkey fryer propane burner after sitting in storage for two years and it just isn't firing off like it should. I remember this thing sounding like a freakin jet engine, but the flame is only to be described...

    What style would this beer fall under?

    Question concerning style guidelines. Can you categorize a beer based only on the SRM, IBU, and ABV? Tasting the flavor profile would be a huge part of defining the beer, right? 20 SRM 75 IBU 6.4% ABV

    Beer clarity and how it relates ?

    I just bottled two batches this weekend. I did not use a secondary for clarity. Both beers (APA and American Wheat) both sat in primary for three weeks. How, if at all, does clarity affect the finished product in regard to taste or mouth feel? Thanks !
