I also prefer Field 41 pale ale but I enjoy all of their offerings. I took a couple of Sixer's out to NHC in Philly and shared them with some people (Stan Hieronymous included)
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?
I don't regret buying a thermapen but I probably would buy the RT600c from the same maker as the thermapen next time. The thermapen is a lot of money for something that is not water tight. The RT600c appears to have better water resistance (vs. splash proof).
Hah!! Is it officially going to be "Grains"? I thought it might be Malts but then they wouldn't have a new & different vowel to highlight in a different color on the cover.
