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 Why toss the starter wort?
Why would it be nasty? Why would it be oxidized? I don't think mine are either of those. I dump it all in (usually it's only about 300 ml in a 20 liter batch).

It hasn't landed yet, but I expect it to be about 1.008.

I had Brooklyn Sorachi Ace once, and I don't remember anything like dill. Hopefully massive dry-hopping with Citra will fix this beer of mine.
