Tell us your opinion of brewing and tasting ales vs lager.
💩are lagers superior to ales? Are apples better than oranges? Is hockey better than basketball? Is astroglide better than ky?
Everyone has their own tastes and their own likes and dislikes.
There's no right or wrong about what you prefer or don't prefer.
I drink ales and lagers. But also sour beers, stouts, gose, kolsch, san francisco lagers, bier de garde, cider, perry, wine and just plain water. Each one has a time and a place. I can't say one is superior to any other.
Yes. No one makes orange PIE or hard orange CIDER...Are apples better than oranges?
No. Both Nielsen ratings and jersey sales suggest hockey lags FAR behind basketball in popularity.Is hockey better than Basketball?
Yes. It's also nonspermicidal which helps if you have to make a deposit at the fertility clinic but don't want to start a fire with your johnson doing it dry handed.Is Astroglide better than KY?
Haha!Are NE IPA's superior to West Coast IPA's? Anddddd go!
Wait. You need to be talking to me about this Key Lime Wheat you have planned... THIS is of great interest to me and my pursuits!If you brew a really good lager & an equally good ale, I would most likely be impressed more by the lager, because of the work that goes into it. Personally, I prefer ales (pales, porters, stouts) but I understand the intricacy involved with brewing a solid lager.
Ha! I've still yet to do it. Buddy went to Fla & had one, graham crackers & lime...sounded delicious. Maybe next month? Pale ale Sunday for August...Wait. You need to be talking to me about this Key Lime Wheat you have planned... THIS is of great interest to me and my pursuits!
I like this34/70 is a fantastic yeast that is will work in temps from 9-22°C (48.2-71.6°F). If I could only have one strain for the rest of my life, that might just be the one I'd pick.
When people say they don't like lagers they usually mean American Lager or possibly some Germain styles (if they have even tried good examples).
Another misconception is that lagers are hard to make or take a long time. If your temp control is solid it is just as easy to ferment a lager as an ale. I can keg a lager in the same 10-14 day time frame.
So, no lagers are not superior to an ale but lager yeast can be great. And to get the "style" out of the way... try fermenting you favorite beer with 34/70. You'll probably be shocked how good it turns out. No, it won't be the same... and probably won't do as well in competition due to style categories but larger yeast can make fantastic beers.
Flavorwise? Much.Is Astroglide better than KY?
