    Vote!

    I noticed a lack of activity on the site, so I thought I'd at least try to throw something on and try my hand at adding a poll (never done that before!). So pick one, ale or lager. Also, feel free to post your favorite or most recent beer.

    I've been enjoying Founders Dirty Bastard lately.
    Two ciders please, I'm thirsty!

    On deck: Soon Cider
    Fermenting: None
    bottled: Old and dusty something rathers
    Secondary: None
    Kegged: Carbonated Water (enjoying home made soda syrups)

    I went with ale as there seem to be more available on the store shelves at any given moment.

    Somewhere on a park bench Godot is waiting on me.

    Yes, I do simply walk into Mordor!

    Me too. Though I had a nice set of German beers over the holiday weekend.
    All of them were lagers.

    It was pretty awesome! Nice and malty/roasty with a good amount of coffee and caramel flavour and no indication of the alcohol ... until you finish off a bomber and then try to stand up quickly. lol

    I like Ale, because most lagers here in Denmark are not that special.
    But we have a nice German type pub in Aarhus, where I work, and they have a nice selection of German Larger' like Rauch Beer, and Keller Beer.

    I've been having a hard time finding a wheat beer that really struck home for me. Oberon is enjoyable, and Leinenkugel Summer Shanty was a good lawn mower beer. Got any suggestions for a solid wheat beer?

    Malty, if you're looking for a brewing challenge, brew a roggenbier. Like a weizen but with rye instead of wheat. Give it a nice long protein rest, and have lots of rice hulls on hand.
    On deck: a clone of Carolina Beer Co's Rye Stout, clone of Breckenridge's Vanilla Porter,
    Primary: Schwarzbier
    Secondary: Dortmunder, Hopweizen
    Keg Conditioning: Dunkelweizen, Roggenbier, Okto, Ord. Bitter
    On tap: Alt, Hefeweizen, Cigar City Maduro clone, Mild
    Bottled: Mead, Quad Rajet, Granola Bar Braggot

    Too much of everything is just enough.

    No. But choosing between ales and lagers is downright criminal!!!
