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 How to treat Brettanomyces for secondary fermentation?
Yup. I consider myself to be pretty careful, and my sanitation procedures had always been adequate... until I introduced Brett into my homebrewery.

comment 90-minute boil for pilsner malt?
This is great info to have! It's interesting that John Palmer's How to Brew doesn't seem to mention this. He's got recipes in there using all pilsner malt and, unless I've missed something, he just specifies a 60-minute boil.

comment Has anyone used molasses in a beer?
Yes, FAR from subtle. I found 1 cup to be too much. For me the perfect amount is zero.

I'm a little confused about how you asked this in August before this forum existed, but I'm mostly interested to know how your beer turned out!

comment Krausen During Primary
That sounds like a perfect ratio to me ... make a batch, put it in the plastic primary for about 2 days, then into one of the waiting empty carboys.

comment What's the point of going all-grain?
The bulk grain I get costs about 80 cents a pound. So ten pounds of that is $8. The hops I get are about $2 per ounce. With a dry yeast or a re-used liquid yeast, it ends up about $14.
