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

Is it bottled yet? If so, how did it turn out?

Cool, thanks. I don't think there's any significant bacteria in mine, either. And thanks for the correction... I've edited the question.

comment What is skunking?
I agree with all of the first comment, except for "NO beer is intended to have skunk flavors." I'm quite certain that the mild skunking of Sleemans (Canada) is deliberate. If I'm wrong about Sleemans, then there's my own beer which I sometimes skunk slightly on purpose.

comment Is there a limit to how many times you re-use bottles?
Wow... I would probably kill someone who didn't give my bottles back. Where do you get your bottles from? How can you have so many that you don't want empties back?

comment First Fermentation And Worried Something Is Wrong
Well, now that digital cameras have been invented, you need something to do, right? If you had started this hobby a couple of decades ago, you probably would have started with a book called, "The Complete Joy of Homebrewing" by Charlie Papazian. One of the most important things you would have learned from that book is: "Don't worry. Relax. Have a homebrew."

comment Confused about using a carboy
No, normally if you're only going to use just one or the other, you'd just use the carboy. But I'd recommend starting in the bucket, and racking to the carboy after the foam has died down (probably 3-4 days after you started).

I don't think "twist-off" should be a disqualification. There are some twist-offs which work really well.
