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 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.

I've heard this "cat pee" thing before. How does one go about learning what cat pee smells like?

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.
