How's the Hoppy Hefe? The Hoppy Hefe is brewed with German Weissbier yeast but shows no fruity or banana flavors and and no spicy clove or hints of lemon, bubblegum or vanilla you might find in a typical Weissbier, or in something like Hopfen-Weisse. With its dry, complex hop bouquet HH is a grassy...

oh come on, doesn't anybody think of the children anymore? :roll: Helen Lovejoy still does! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qh2sWSVRrmo I think nanos are a neat idea but the time and effort to make 100 L of beer is the same as 1000 L, and will end up crushing your soul and eat your profits.

Almost as depressing as seeing a brewer and author of several books on beer spell 'palate' wrong twice in one post. You wouldn't catch Garrett Oliver doing that

Good advice from Grub, and while his methods speak for themselves (kudos on the BoS at TBW), I would dispute 2 things: - Most styles don't require a secondary in my opinion, it is a wasted step that provides little to no benefit.

Vote for the Freedom Party! Viva la revolution! In all seriousness could someone explain the rationale behind the Liberal sales tax on Ontario-made beer? How can local brewers remain competitive?
