Aaaarrrgggghhhh! Plastic cups. That's no way to treat a beer...unless of course you have to.

Again not the best beer, but pretty smooth bokeh from the DA35 Ltd.



… perhaps I don't have any pictures of my favorite beers as I'm busy drinking them.

Tell me about it. It was a party after all but I did bring my own glass. Party guests get plastic, friends get glass.

We just opened the first bottles of our 1st homebrew. The Belgian Tripel that we started about a month ago. We needed something to drink while working on our 2nd batch which is a nice Pale Ale, not IPA but hoppier than Sierra etc according to the guy who gave us the recipe.

So we pop the top and hear a satisfying PSSST, we pour and see a nice golden head. We'd heard that your first homebrew will be the best beer you've ever tasted. I was surprised to find out it's true. We love Delirium Tremens and this is at least as good. It is honestly one of the top 5 beers I've ever tasted. It's the recipe that won a couple of awards for our local brewer. And at 8% alcohol and a light breakfast we're feeling it.
OMG!!

The first pour from the first bottle.

Has home brewing changed yet? last time I tried a home brew, the best tasted like a bitter wine... Yuk!
Is there "mexican" style home brews?

thanks

Wow! That looks very good. 1st homebrew ever? The colour looks spot on

I occasionally get Chimay Blue, which is a lot darker than yours, and Duvel, which looks about the same. I prefer the German style for casual tippling and have the strong Belgians to savour.

This came close to being a tragedy. It's Australia Day today and someone I've known for almost 35 years was elected "Australian of the Year", so I decided to have a couple of Australian beers to celebrate. None in the fridge But I found a bottle of Beck's hiding at the back. This will have to do. Except, OH NO, it's past its best before date. How did that happen? But, beer is beer, so I gave it a go. It wasn't as fresh as it should be, but it was OK.

Randy,

When was the last time you had a homebrew? You probably just had a style of beer you didn't much care for.

has it evolved since then?

It's always been good and bad, it's usually the maker or using poor kits that makes for a bad homebrew. I brewed for a big part of the 80s and early 90s at a ubrew with a mash Tun. Never used a kit always started from mash and made many a beer i would have been happy to place against any micro brewery. Really the Canadian Micro brew scene grew straight out of the home brew craze in the 80's, a lot of the people who started them had been brewing in their basements

which micro brew would you say your homebrew tastes like? I have tried most of the mill st and a few other micros like robersimpson from barrie (also flying monkey which I thought was to bitter for me) to name a few

I mostly brewed ales and when I didn't gop off in some whako direction (ie Chilie beer) the closest i could put some of my beers would have been durham count SPA, Mills St Tankhouse, Mill St Coffee porter (different batch obviously), Wellington County SPA
really if it is a hoppier ale it's in the style i favoured as that is what i drink.
I never brewed a Lager as it isn't my style of beer I've tasted a couple of decent ones people brewed ( a friend of mine was brewing one similar to Corona for world cup)

Follow the link in original post... still made and now they'll be distributing KEGS for the 1st time in 15 years. It usually goes for $1 to $1.50 a can at a bar, so I figure were looking at a lot of "Dollar Draft Nights"... Boh knows!!!
