    If you like to brew British Ale, you’ve got to check out this youtube link. Yesterday I went to a brew club meeting and one of the guys there asked whether we’d be interested in tasting six different ESB’s – all having been brewed by different home brewers. As it turns out, the fellow bringing the ESB’s belongs to a brew club on Youtube and 20 of them agreed to brew ESB’s with identical grain bills, identical hops and schedules, mash temps, boil times etc. Each brewer than packaged 20 bottles of their brew and sent a bottle to each participant who will eventually post their personal comments on each individual brew. The only real variables being yeast and water. We sampled six yesterday and there is a dramatic difference. This as it turns out is a coast to coast thing and each brewer used a different yeast. Hopefully once the tasting is complete some summary comments with be posted. What a great idea and group of brewers.

    Here's the link:
