Homebrew Competitions / Re: NHC Final Round Sign Up
« on: Today at 05:08:24 AM »
Wow so much drama. Quit crying. Volunteer to judge our steward if you think you'll enjoy it and want to help out the competition. If you don't then don't. Simple as that. These long posts crying about ranks are totally unnecessary.

High temp silicone won't collapse but it does pinch pretty easily. If you don't mind the stiffness the reinforced is nice for some areas. If you're not making any angles with the tubing the regular silicone tubing is probably fine.

I do notice some of the events are missing.  So far I'm noticing BNA/WL Party is missing and the Ménage à Myces seminar.

Does anyone else have trouble finding the conference site?  All I can get is the "register now" page with no way to jump to the actual NHC pages.
Nope.  No issues here...

Well tapatalk is still working for me on all my other forums.. Just not the AHA forums.  Says it is failing to connect which makes me think maybe the AHA forums need to install an upgrade or something for the plugin.

most my experiences have been great with uber.  I've always had nicer cars using uber than a taxi.  It's been cheaper than a taxi as well...

I think you're in for some slim pickings finding someone that lives near enough to your family to car pool with... Have you checked out Uber?  That's how I'm planning to get around most of the time.  You can get a fare estimate from here:

Shameless plug but you can use my link here to sign up if you don't have an account... It gives you $20 off your first ride... and me $10 off my next ride :D

I'm ready to rock out with my... bock out...

Listening or even watching the seminars online doesn't really compare to being able to attend in person.  You can't ask questions, talk to them afterwards, or sample the presentation samples online.

Meeting and talking with other homebrewers from across the country (and sometimes world) is also not to be overlooked. 

At the Homebrew Expo you get to see demos (and oftentimes samples) of all sorts of different/new products.

Freezing will work fine... Just remember to not freeze full containers... or they may burst...

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Keg Headspace

Your talking temperature stratification.. not stratification of the different gasses in the air.  Pushing the sanitizer out of the keg would be your ideal way to get the most o2 out of the keg... though I think for practicality sake the put co2 in the 'in' of the keg and purging gets the vast majority of the o2 out via displacement.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: NHC 2015 First Round Results
« on: April 28, 2015, 11:18:20 AM »
Entrants may only submit one entry per subcategory. For categories that have no subcategories (Categories 20 and 23), you may only submit one entry. An entrant may be an Additional Brewer for a different entry in a subcategory they have already entered as the main brewer (e.g. John Doe enters an American Pale Ale, Category 10A, and is also the Additional Brewer on an American Pale Ale submitted by Jane Smith).

That's from the rules. It seems that if you want to submit the same pale ale to both American Pale Ale and American Amber Ale - it's good, and there is a lot of overlap in the style guide.

As for the team thing - I would give them the benefit of doubt and hope that they just made a mistake. Janis caught it in her audit of the results and did the right thing. It is a shame it wasn't caught by the site director so that one of the entries didn't advance to BoS.
...That's one way to interpret that rule... I would read that rule as you can only enter 1 beer per subcategory where you are the primary brewer.  If someone else enters a beer in that same subcategory with you as the secondary brewer it's ok.  I don't interpret it saying anything about entering the same beer in multiple subcategories...
