One of the interesting effects of low oxygen beers are the drinkabilty of them due to the lack of what the Germans call herbstoffe. Roughly translated this means "grain bitterness" or "grain astringency." Oxidized beers on the hot side produce this bitterness that is there but is not from hops. With lagers this coupled with the smoothness of the cold ferm and spund produce beers that drink like water.


I think a good pale ale by definition is pretty drinkable, but this one is incredibly so. Definitely won't last long.

Belgian/American Pale Ale 1.056OG 1.009FG really creamy and smooth



My first gel-fining brew came out beautiful.

Well, here is a picture of a recent brew that most people don't post!

I had called it "Kitchen Sink Lager" because I just make it with all the spare things I had laying around one weekend, I guess this is another use for the name.  Drank about 3/4 of it and need the space for something better...down she goes.

Risk of failure should be no deterrent to trying.

Same here. I pretty regularly dump a small amount to make room for something new.

What sucks is when you have to dump a nearly full keg because it just doesn't taste right AND you need the space for another beer. But I'd rather not waste the liver damage and calories on something that sucks. It's kind of why I'm glad I'm brewing 2.5 gallon batches now; not as much to dump if it turns out poorly. But it also only lasts a week and a half if it's really good...trade off. But I'm also trying to cut back on my consumption so it lasts longer than that.

Well, when you're broke-a$$ like me, that isn't always feasible.

Here's my Bangarang! IPA that I brewed a few months back. This was the first beer that I used a pump to do a true whirlpool. A whirlpool of a bucket load of hops. It's towards the end of the keg and is crystal clear now. I wish the elf would bring me another keg!

I'll be honest, but it tastes better. It actually got better with a little time. It's just part it's Prime now by a few weeks.

Yeah, you tap it and the hop character is amazing and it's downhill from there. Worth it, though!
