I often hear about scorching decoctions but does anyone have any experience in actually scorching a decoction?I've burnt up a decoction pretty bad (my first one) the thick portion was too thick.. lol no amount of constant stirring helped... I even chucked the pot afterwards lol.
Too thick is difficult to stir until it gets up to temperature, that I can understand especially for a big grain bill.
Big thing with the written exam is practicing answering those questions as quickly as possible. I got my exam, read through it, and thought "Wow I'm going to ace this thing. I could answer these with my eyes closed."... Well that is true... but answering them in the allotted time proved to be a different thing altogether lol.yeah I'm pretty happy. burns a little to know I would probably have done better if I read the instructions more closely but lesson learned.
Don't feel bad, NOBODY reads the instructions...everybody jumps in. For a short time the examinee was asked to initial each line that they read it, I wish we still had that.
When we gave the essay exam getting the examinees to number the pages correctly was like herding cats, all of a sudden intelligent adults became children with one of those big fat pencils and paper which tore as soon as you touched it with the lead. I'm not quite sure why that was, but eventually I made a template and gave it to every examinee. Several still got it wrong.
thanks Mike. I've got some time before I'm eligible for the written exam (I've only got 3.5 points right now) but you can be sure I'll read all the instructions carefully when I do.
Look out Allagash...you're next:Only if Innovation gets the trademark. ;-)
Yes it was with guys from the brew club I am in. We have a black IPA coming out next weekend. And will be filling back up with the barley wine. I would like to leave at my shop over the summer but was thinking 90's during the day might not be good for the beer. I can move to my basement and that would be around 68 constant
Hopefully I got your attention.
I just booked my room for the NHC, but it's (gulp) like $700 with taxes and fees for four nights (Wednesday through Saturday nights). Does anybody know of a woman attending alone who would be hoping to share a room? I've never shared a room before, but the room has two queens and I'm almost never in there anyway, so I was hoping to find a roomie this year.
If you are interested, or know someone who may be going as a single woman (like me) and wanting to share, please let me know! I'm hoping to come into San Diego early, and stay at the beach or another resort for a few days before the NHC and not wanting to blow my entire hotel budget in 4 days!
