Strange I just now came upon this post. The same thing was concluded back in 2006/7 on BBR. Just going through the backlog I have of them now. Weird that we are continuing to test stuff that has already had empirical evidence suggest the same thing.

From what I've been reading I'm not convinced that everyone that bought tickets were AHA members!
Even sadder then. What's the point of having a members ONLY sale, if we can't even buy them? They should sale these early to members, if the members choose, and send them out. It's not like it's a surprise where and when the GABF will be.

Events / GABF Sold OUT?!?

Trying to get some tickets after I get home from work. As normal people do go to work. I thought. But how are there a limited amount of tickets for the actual members of BA and AHA? And there will still be a General Public sale going on? That sounds a bit ludicrous. And really giving it to the members, and not in a good way.

Tie these tickets to the AHA Member. General public can scalp all they want. This is really a pathetic showing by members. And they should really be ashamed of themselves for buying tickets expressly to sale or trade them away for beer. I've seen more than a couple people post pre-trades for these.

Yeast and Fermentation / Don't make yeast starters from dry yeast? WTF?

when you sprinkle it into your wort, you really aren't re-hydrating in alcohol though
I think Kai was responding to the person saying that trying to pitch on a stuck fermentation never worked for him/her. Actually, I don't think it, I know. Since he quoted him and all.

When you put up the sign that says sold out the underlying message is "this stuff is damn good and you should have gotten off your butt and bought some when it was available and next time you see it available you'd better buy a case before it's sold out again."

Sadly I think this is the trend with most brewers nowadays. Too many wine people came into the industry and saw how that worked with wine, now they are doing it with beer. Darklord anyone? Kate the Great? Reserve Societies? The 'exclusivity' or the 'I-got-it-and-you-didn't' crowd is becoming larger each year.

Now there are some good beers that are sold out because they are good. And they seem to try to make more each year. Demand for those have grown semi-organically because the beers are really good. But the 'special release' mentality is going to end up hurting more than it helps.

Will be brewing both recipes (5gal, or so, each) on Big Brew Day.

Go to or email me at suprchunk (at) gmail (dot) com

As soon as the ability to post and view the sites are up and running (probably should've been before the details were posted, but I digress) I'll update that.

Sorry for the delay, but I don't check these forums that often as the flow of information seems to be very stagnant.

I am in Heinsberg. It's near the border of Netherlands and Belgium.

Gut Sud!  (German for "Good Brewing")

Sud is Sud. Süd is South. Unless it was some mangled slang.

I am too far away from you Chris otherwise I would invite you over. I am in need of a brew partner and am in the process of converting a couple coworkers. Good luck in your quest. And gute brau.

... You're well established in the very upper echelon of the homebrewing cottage industry (think Palmer, JZ, Papazian, etc). ...

I wouldn't go that far.

I agree though, you shouldn't do it. It will definitely kill all you love about it. The fun aspect. If, on the other hand, you won't have to rely on it to live, and don't mind losing all you invested in it by just packing it in at a moment's notice, then go for it. I feel that you would probably regret all the blood, sweat, and tears if you felt you lost the passion and hung it up.

Most anything beats Shiner. And the US needs to institute some labeling laws - I don't know how they can, in good conscience, call it a Bock.
