I've met Ed Stoudt. He has lots of charisma. He'd be a good speaker. His wife Carol would also be a good choice.

Does anyone by chance know when the pre-conference events will be posted? I keep checking back but there doesn't appear to be any information yet...
Would you be disappointed with Sam Calagione? Not so far from Philly, the chair of the Brewers Association Board, and a big supporter of homebrewing. He is also friends with Vinnie Cilurzo and Ken Grossman, and has to keep up with those guys, as they have been keynote speakers (2011 and 2009 respectively).
Who ever it is, they probably have already been booked, and have the calender cleared for a few days.
3068 is the reason I bought a 6.5 gallon fermenter for 5 gallon batches.
It was literally pouring out the neck of a 6 gallon better bottle. I don't think an extra half gallon of space would have contained it, either. Next time maybe I'll rig up a three gallon bottle as a Burton union.
I'm sure there are online solutions, but I don't know any. For a DIY solution, we print membership cards on the pre-perforated business card stock available at most office supply stores. You can get a template and design everything in word. You can also get lamination sheets pre-cut for business cards to really make it look like you know what you're doing.
Option One: One 12 ounce bottle of malta goya , 12 ounces distilled water, add yeast..... done!! no boil, no muss, no fuss !!!
Option Two: DME, distilled water, shake violently, put on stir plate if you have one, add yeast.....done!! no boil, no muss, no fuss!!
Sometimes we make things wwwwaaaaaayyyyyy too hard... cheers!!
I've been thinking about going no-boil for my starters, but there's always that nagging voice in the back of my head saying that you need to boil/sanitize everything that touches your beer. I'm assuming you've never had a contamination issue with your no boil starters?
