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 the distinctive flavor in Warsteiner Premium Verum?
Sounds interesting. Is your recipe anywhere, like on hopville.com? If I can get a similar flavor I'll be happy, but it doesn't seem like it's what's Warsteiner is doing -- that beer is so light I wouldn't think it has anything like dark Munich in it.

comment No-rinse acid sanitizer - is there a risk?
If rinsing my bottles with tap water is going to contaminate my beer, I've got bigger problems to worry about than my beer. I drink my tap water all the time.

comment Recipe for Brewing?
Yeah, spending some time learning from a good book, like John Palmer's, is a very important first step. After you understand what it's all about, you'll be able to understand what to do for a recipe which doesn't include "procedures" details.

comment Using trub directly vs. yeast rinsing.
How did you store the trub for 5 months? Refrigerated? Room temp?

comment Bottling and Caps are loose
Ah, it was a loaner! I thought it was maybe a worn-out capper at first, but you said this was your first attempt at brewing. I had a capper that was great for about 8 years, and then I started getting all these non-sealed bottles. I got a new capper and everything's fine again.
