    The wife and I are drinking our first Fou' Foune, and the first glass was sorda eh? Doing a side-by-side with Filmishmish (yes I know all of the differences between them); and the Fou' Foune really opened up in the fridge after 30 minutes. Curious if anyone has gone to the measures of using a decanter for beer? That would be nuts

    I decant my homebrew bombers if they have an excessive amount of yeast in the bottle. Not quite for the same reasons as you're thinking, but whatever.

    I had a batch that I bottled a while back that has so much crap in tho bottom of the bottle when I pour my first glass and stand the bottle up the yeast cake breaks up and ruins my second glass. I'm not a yeastophobe, but I'm not a yeastophile either, its just too much. So I decant the whole bottle and am able to enjoy the entire 22 oz.

    Sounds like you need a bigger glass. Think German. :slight_smile:

    I wouldn't use a decanter, but I'll definitely use a goblet for Belgium beers. It's wide open and allows lots of breathing. Kind of the same point as a decanter, right?
