Well, not really, but its the clearest beer I've ever brewed. This is my Spend Your Days in the Sunshiiine Belgian Ale. My first partial mash. I did a late extract addition, that had to affect it as well...

Looks great. I really like that third photo on the radiator, you should convert it to black and white and see how it looks.

It tastes great, its still a bit young (only three weeks in the bottle so far). Its crazy, I can taste a hint of the barley (in a good way) near the end. I think it could have used a bit more hops in the flavor addition, but that's just me, and the honey definitely adds another, good dimension to it. This will be perfect when the weather gets hot.

I know a lot of us will say this from time to time, but I truly mean it, this is the best beer I've brewed yet and I would actually buy this if it was in a store.

There we go, McKBrew, I added a little gradient on the edges and played with the contrast a bit...

Nice job, my next brew is going to be Deathbrewers partial mash. I hope mine turns out as good as yours.

that black and white would be sweet if you could get the beer's color through, while keeping the background b+w!

looks good, I have an IPA on tap that is see through too. I thank leaving it to ferment/clean up a long time and crash cooling before kegging it...oh and the whirlfoc tablet too I guess.

Damn, I'd forgotten about this thread. I like both of the B&W images.

I really want to reprint the color/B&W one and frame it.

That needs to be re-posted in the beer photo thread, unfortunately I can't find the link for you.

dont most beers come out that clear? or am i lucky with my 1st 7 batches?

I think you're lucky with your batches? Most of mine, in the past before I started partial mashes and late extract additions, have come out dark because of caramelization...

I believe your gift is greatly appreciated, Cheeto, by at least McKbrew and I...
