Yeah, people think of RB ticking as pointless since you donít get "credit" for them. I kind of wish they counted the same as ratings just to discourage people from writing crappy reviews.

Probably depends on brewery. Purged w/ CO2 would help but counterpressure is even better. By counterpressure, I mean you not only purge w/ CO2 but bring the container up to the same level of pressure ...

Do they fill them w/ any sort of special system, like under counterpressure? It seemed from the CCB crowler video, they just filled them like a normal growler so I would guess shelf life would be pret...

33. When I first joined the site I was one of the young guys. Now I am a normal aged guy who has been here a long time.

By the way, it is totally much easier to just pour the beer in a glass and micorwave that.

Well, you need to be some kind of beer geek to be a brewer at all so I will say the geeks game first on a technicality.

Side Q: What is your prefered package for malt liquor?
I prefer malt come in either tallboys or six packs of pounders. Easier to keep it cold. I do try to chug a couple forties ever now and...

Corona is bad even when it is not skunked. It tastes mucky and muted even fresh in cans. Worst American Standard made in North America by a major brewery. You have to go to a brewpub in Bumblefuck, Oh...

I plan ahead. Pull out the next beer I am going to drink when I pop the current one.

I would suggest Bohemia as an excellent choice for Corona replacement. Corona should be replaced by another beer in pretty much all situations because it is an absolutely terrible beer.

Stone RuinTen for me. That beer is just not good. They make at least two better IIPAs too. Whatís the point?

Mixer sixers of terrible cider from the grocery store.

Yes, I really want to make white/Belgian IPA a style. There are lots of commercial examples and the style seems to be gaining momentum. Furthermore, I just donít think thereís an existing category tha...

I would think it more likely that the barrel aging caused the defects in these case. I feel like BA beers have negative oxidative qualities at least as often as they donít. I mean what flaws is barrel...

A BYOB ballpark would be the site of much fisticuffs, I think.

I have never once rebrewed anything and had it turn out better the second time. I think that is partly because my attitute tended to be along the lines of "Letís try this again only higher gravit...

Either way you have IPA like hopping and are using a fruity/spicy Belgian yeast. Belgian ales other than wit use corriander and other spices. Most white IPAs are considerably stronger than a standard ...
8/18/2014 11:58:06 AM
Yeah, I think the brewers themselves are legimately excited about their BA offerings. I bet they tend much more towards being "no expense spared" type offerings.

I am a fan of the style and think there are very much enough of them to merrit a new style on RateBeer. I would most definitely lump them in w/ Belgian IPA as well. It does seem like white IPA specifi...

I doubt many breweries are barrel aging to disquise bad beer. The process is too expensive. Better off throwing a bunch of vanilla extract in there and calling it a day if you are trying to cut corner...

I was under the impression Corona was some kind of sweet nectar of the gods but it turned out to be skunky and heinous.
Nobody thinks Dark Lord is good anymore, by the way.
