So I was just recently looking at the latest issue of Zymurgy online and noticed that there was a small write up about NHC in Grand Rapids. It indicated a pre-registration over time but there is a chance of not being selected to attend. Can anyone explain how this will work? Also, when would one know if one is selected to attend through this lottery system? I have never seen a conference utilize a lottery registration system.
Perhaps you're confused with the conference and the competition. Hope so. A lottery for the conference would alienate a lot of homebrewers.
What can somebody tell me about using BeerSmith across multiple computers? Basically, I am looking for one collection available at home, work and mobile. Automatically synced would be a plus, but one button sync is ok.
Sinamar is best if you're not looking to change the flavor profile. Carafa dehusked, midnight wheat, chocolate wheat or even black malt would be fine at a really small amount to adjust the color but would not be as invisible in the flavor as sinamar.
Many bars pay to have their lines cleaned for them, many fewer do it in house, and the equipment for that is much cheaper than a keg washing rig.
James - being on the GC does not prevent/prohibit you from entering the NHC.
Jake is correct here. Although, it does preclude you from entering contest the AHA runs, like the Siebel scholarship.
No employee of the Brewers Association may enter.
I wonder how you keep a layer of CO2 on the beer to prevent oxidation if you use a wooden spile.
I have two English beer engines/beer pumps (one is Hi-Gene and the other is Worthside). After a lot of disassembly and repair they both work well, but if I attach them to a keg with more than 3-4 psi, the faucets drip. Is this normal? I realize that bitters are low-carbonation beers, and perhaps that is a designed way to tell you if you have too high a psi. Or maybe I put them back together improperly, or there is some part not functioning properly? Anyone have experience with beer engines who can help answer my questions?
