Just saw this.  Apparently everybody who already registered is in and ticket purchase links should be going out by tomorrow:

That's Great!

@ Amanda - That is a great idea but this being my first NHC, I don't feel I have enough info to suggest a when.  Anyone?

When will we know if we are in?  I don't recall reading anywhere about a time frame so I assumed that the day after registration closed I'd get an email one way or the other.   This will be my first NHC - just anxious to get all the downstream issues taken care of.

Oh, and I am looking forward to meeting you, Steve.

Thanks!  Yes I am looking forward to meeting you and the other participants of this board!  We are planning to arrive Monday and spend a couple of days looking around San Diego.  I spent 4 years there in the Navy.  That was ~35 years ago!

I love beer and cigars too.  Whiskey- not so much.

Ingredients / Re: Michigan Hops Farms Expanding.

I've been meaning to post an observation of mine.  This Winter I have noticed a BIG increase in new hop fields going in.  There is one about 2 miles from my house that alone is probably 200 acres.  And it is just one of at least a half-dozen new fields I've seen.

Apparently the thinking is that there is another hop shortage coming up - or at least good profit margins to be made in the next few years.

I voted for Jonathan.  I understand that I get a can of Heady Topper now.  When should I expect it?

General Homebrew Discussion / CO2 when dumping yeast

How many of you with conicals hook CO2 to the top of the vessel when dumping yeast in order to avoid introducing oxygen?

I love that book.  Had it on my iPad for a year or so.  I reference it primarily to coordinate hop flavors.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: accident proves theory
« on: February 14, 2015, 11:59:19 AM »
This does work good if you are in a hurry.  The only caution is to make sure there is less pressure in the keg than your what you have the regulator set at.  Otherwise beer will travel up your CO2 line and ruin your regulator.

Beer Recipes / Re: Hops to pair with trois
« on: February 13, 2015, 05:12:34 PM »
I did a Black IPA with Brett trois earlier this year.  I used Centennial, Amarillo and Citra.  It turned out pretty good, but I would up the flavor/Aroma hops as they were subdued from what I like.  here is what I did:

2.00 oz Centennial [10.00 %] - Steep/Whirlpool 10.0 min
2.00 oz Citra [12.00 %] - Steep/Whirlpool 10.0 min
2.00 oz Citra [12.00 %] - Dry Hop 14.0 Days
2.00 oz Amarillo [8.50 %] - Dry Hop 7.0 Days

The Pub / Re: Will beer cans be the "Food Babe's" next target?
« on: February 12, 2015, 09:15:57 AM »
I don't know about the science.  I think Mother Earth News often takes a Chicken Little approach to the latest food scare without serious unbiased investigation. 

That being said, I don't like canned beer.  It does not taste the same as bottled beer.  Don't ask me why or how, I am just stating my impression.
