The red, malty, lemony may do fine if it finishes dry, but with the banana and bubblegum if noticeable will probably take a hit.

I think that recipe calls for Carafa Special (II), not Carafa I.

You can also try The forum has a section for developers and financiers looking to move in that direction.

Thanks, Janis. Kudos to all the organizers. So much effort in such a short period of time. They are amazing.

If you don't have a vehicle it will be difficult to make it out of the cities to, say the Trappist monasteries. Several (Chimay, Westvletern and La Trappe) have wonderful restaurants that serve amazing local food and of course the Trappist beers. Brussels is not my favorite city, but Cantillon, Moder Lambic and a couple other spots are worth spending a day if you enjoy sours. If I had my druthers I'd spend the whole time in Brugges. Wonderful restaurants and amazing beer bars in a beautiful old city. Cambrinus and Belgian Beertje are my favorite spots there.

Cambrinus and Belgian Beertje in Brugge. You'll never forget it.

My first hop book was "Using Hops" by Mark Garetz. Lots of information has come up since then, but it is a good read with great base information. It's hard to find a copy, but worth it if you can.

I brewed a Cal Common and a alt a couple weeks ago. I fired up the kettle for a brew this weekend and discovered one of my hop cups sitting on the shelf with one of my additions from the previous brew day. For the life of me I can't remember not adding them and to which batch i didn't add them to. I don't even know how I got distracted so badly I forgot an addition.  I wasn't even drinking.

Probably my Common. There is irony being that I had just adjusted the Common recipe to accommodate the continuous "not enough hops" comments from judges. Damn.

Don't even open it up. just rack it into the out-post and call it a closed-system transfer. It might just be crazy enough to work...

I have the style you pictured in the OP. It's great. Easy to set up and use and allows so much more style variability.

I tried an Equinox single-hopped beer from one of the vendors at NHC. The main aroma that jumped out was "gasoline". Not kidding. Did not come through so much in the flavor, but it was definitely there.
