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 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!

comment Off flavor/odor from cold break
Yeah, it was the exact same yeast because I only pitched once. I pitched before separating the main batch from the "PET batch".

comment How precisely can you read your refractometer
Buy one! You won't regret it! If I without mine for whatever reason, I would replace it before I went through another brew day.

comment Using Grolsch “Premium Lager” bottles for bottling
+1 for using Grolsch bottles all the time without problems. I've done that too, though not much anymore. No skunkiness if they're kept out of the light. But I wouldn't boil the gaskets.

I've always thought that grey layer on top of the grainbed was grain dust.

comment Measuring Cup for Batch Sparging?
I'd guess the measuring cup is for draining wort into for re-circulation.
