Homebrew I+: English Pale Ale, Revisited
Pictured is my final pint of English Pale Ale, brewed last September and poured and consumed tonight. (Yes, Butch, I hoard my homebrew -- yours, too; there's a bottle of your second batch of Autumn Amber in my fridge, if you're interested.) You may recall that my big complaint was that the beer wouldn't pour or hold a head (as shown in the photo below, which accompanied my original post).
Now four months later, the last two bottles poured with a creamy, persistent layer of delicious foam that lasted the entire glass. Are my glasses finally clean? Or does it get that much better with age? Oh, but they were good, friends -- cheers!
