I enjoy making and drinking lots of different beer, but my favorites tend to be Belgian style ales. But then again, there's nothing like a nice fresh IPA.

I won a "best of show" for a Southern English Brown ale, which I then got to help brew at Howe Sound Brewing. London Town Brown: https://untappd.com/beer/320937

comment What is it about this receipe that makes it an IPA? Or more generally, what makes an IPA?
1:1 BU:GU? BJCP's "American IPA" min OG is 1.056 and min IBU is 40, so that suggests a min BU:GU of around .71.

We need John Palmer to answer this question about aluminum, and also tell us what he thinks about doing it to stainless steel. Looks very nice!

comment What does skunked beer taste like, How would you describe skunked beer?
I think you should the shed the "I'd rather not ruin a beer to find out" way of thinking. Live it up a little for the sake of learning more about beer! :-) It's a very cheap and reliable way to understand this off flavor/aroma. Cheers!
