Homebrew Testing

There is quite a difference between the two beers we have so far made using the Brooklyn Brewshop kits.  The Bruxelles Blonde seems to have gone wrong somewhere in the fermentation, and each bottle is very cloudy, and will foam up and completely overflow when opened.  The beer in each bottle is not that great either – there is a white filmy deposit that seems to have settled into sediment before the bottle is opened, but is remixed into the beer by the violent fizz when it is opened.

The English brown ale is way more successful, a really nice dark craft beer that is close to a porter in its malty taste and dark brown appearance.
