I was describing how to brew Belgian beer to one of the guys I met on the German homebrewer forum.
Me "Strong Belgian beers use between 10 and 20% sugar."
Him "Sugar? Like, table sugar? White sugar."
Him "But, that's against the law!"
Me "Then don't tell the police!"
It's really crazy to me how even German homebrewers take the Reinheitsgebot seriously. He also has a haze problem, (I suspect) because he never uses Irish Moss or any other clarifiers. He does have an amazing HERMS BK/MLT system with like, ropes and pulleys and stuff, though.
