I'm sure this will cause some controversy, but I've been to Asheville, Portland, Denver, Boulder, San Diego, Philly, etc.. and Asheville SUCKS for beer compared to them! (and I'm an east coaster). Don't let them win beer city of the year again! (they're currently in the lead)

This year, let's all vote for San Diego. Lost Abbey, Aleworks, Stone, Ballast point, etc... it's their turn to be recognized!

FYI, I also followed the suggested "complicated" mash and got very little banana aroma and virtually no banana flavor.

Otherwise, it's the same grains, yeast, etc... I use with a single infusion mash where I get a lot of banana.  Something in that article just doesn't work.  I just checked the C to F figures in the article and they seem fine. I'm not sure what happened but I have something closer to an american wheat beer than a bavarian hefeweizen- even with 3086.

Beer Recipes / Recipe Converters

FYI, I recently found this recipe converter:

It turns promash rec files  (not the text output like an older converter out there) into BeerXML v1 files.
Those can then be imported into BeerSmith, QBrew, Brewthology, etc...

People LOVED this stout. We served it at the Farmers' Market to the public.

Is there any way to get them in "BeerXML" format so that I can plug them into QBrew?

Nope, I don't think so.

Hey Denny!

Is the collection database driven?  If so, it can probably support BeerXML depending how it was designed.
