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

Google "whirlfloc half" and you'll find plenty of sources suggesting using half a tablet for 5 gallons.

comment Make American 2-row taste like Pilsen
This is very interesting, but I'd say that it depends on the pils malt. I think if you had compared an American pale malt with Weyermann Floor-Malted Bohemian Pilsner Malt, for example, you would have noticed significant flavor differences.

comment Yeast overdose?
You can't stop fermentation by putting a lid on the jug. That would just (potentially) explode the jug. But if you just let it go a few days after putting the lid on you might be okay.
