I'm not super experienced (in fact I'm only on my second brew now), but what I've been using is hop pellets (usually come in 1g bags) and the malt extract I use is a thick syrup.

Any other flavoring is usually done when you transfer to secondary (primary> secondary fermenter). So things like spice, fruit, coffee beans, or flavor extracts (same stuff used in baking) is added at this transfer stage.

I don't really have a preference due to inexperience. The hop pellets and malt extract are convenient and keep fresh much MUCH longer than raw grain, but it would be nice to make beer from SCRATCH rather than from scratch. I don't even think it's much more work when you have raw grain either, you just have to grind it up pretty much, but it's obviously harder to get. There is a directory at my local brew shop that tells you where there are hop farmers around. I think they deal in fresh hops too, I didn't ask though.

Whole leaf hops in boil cus no whirlpool, pellets in fermenter at sensible gravity or pellets in cold conditioning tanks. Very occasionally use whole leaf hops for dry hopping in the cask but it can be a real pain in the arse to clean afterwards. Dabbled briefly with hop oils directly added to "finished" beer but I didn't like the results

Went to a local craft beer festival today. Lots of good beers, nice buzz going on, and a souvenir mug. Good times


Realized that I like heavy beers like stouts more than IPA's and similar stuff more, though.

I am actually a fan of Guiness' Nitro IPA. Pretty tasty.

Guiness makes an IPA?! I've literally never seen Guiness other than their regular beer.

Haven't seen the Guinness IPA around. I'll give it a go if I do.


Stopped at a brewery called Chatty Monks in Reading, PA yesterday. I think they're relatively new. Small place. Really, really liked the beer. One of the better breweries I've discovered in a while.

Never seen them. Do they distribute to the PNW?

Don't get me wrong, I've had some good dry ciders, but they are few and far between. Most "dry" ciders I've had have still been too sweet.

I don't know, you can check. I would but it appears to be using my IP as a locater and I don't feel like spoofing it.

I got a case of vanilla porter from Leinenkugels and it's really fucking good. Anyone got some recommendations for some sweet-ish dark beers?

Here's a question for you boys in America. Have any of you tried any beers with Azacca hops in? I managed to get hold of 10kg of whole leaf and 5kg pellet a couple of weeks back and I'd be interested to know what to expect

My girlfriend found Tiger beer! I've always wanted to try this. I hear it's insanely popular in Singapore. I actually saw that on the TV show "Departures" and have wanted to try it since

EDIT: not bad! Not the best beer I've ever had, obviously, but I could see myself drinking it regularly. Not taste, not overpowering. Slightly thick, but not stout-thick. Pretty nice!

Off the top of my head, no. But over-hopped beers are stupid popular in my area, so I probably have without realizing it.

Brewed with it now. Fairly pleasant flavours that you'd expect from high alpha US hops so quite citrus but a bit softer than Citra and Mosaic for example. However, I do not like brewing with it as it seems to have a tendency to shed a hell of a lot of general gunk and clogs up all my filters and wrecks one of my pumps. Bit annoyed about that.

If the ''Dieu du Ciel'' brewery is something you can obtain somehow, I highly suggest their Aphrodisiaque. A sweet and mellow cacao vanilla stout.
