comment Tasting my uncarbonated beer: Bitter.
After 4 weeks, this turned into a really tasty little beer. It took a good long while for the bitter/metallic taste to finish out, but it did (just as I finished it) get quite tasty.

comment Williams Warn Personal Brewery
The system has a "trub holder" at the bottom. Before you serve the beer, you shut off a valve and then throw away the yeast - at least that's what they show in the video.

comment Do homebrewing shops get brewery's permission before designing/marketing a clone beer kit?
As noted above, it's not an issue of whether it's a clone - Bell's doesn't care - it's the NAME of the kit.

comment Common practices for adding liquor to homebrew?
I've had good success adding 1/2 cup bourbon per gallon to my brown ale recipe (at bottling). Very tasty brew.

comment What are the easiest and hardest commercial beer bottles to re-use for homebrew?
Olde Towne is closing its doors. Sad for the beer business.

Thanks for the encouragement. I'm already mid-boil on a Brown Ale to back this one (my first real batch (non-Mr. Beer)) up.

Tis bottled now. My buddy thought it wasn't as bad as I did. We'll see in two to three weeks.

Sweetwater bottles in the southeast work well too. And the beer is better than Olde Towne... :)

comment Which commercial bottles are good for repurposing?
The Sam Adams bottles are ridiculous. If you're in the south, Sweetwater bottles from Atlanta are easy off as well.

comment Are there tools that can make the bottling process easier?
Wow... that's just... wow. Great idea. Don't need a bottle tree, don't have to worry about spill... dang. That's great. Best tip I've read on bottling so far.

comment Are there any tricks for removing labels from bottles?
I've had great luck with Oxy Clean as well. The ones that are particularly stubborn, I just let sit longer.
