General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Ridiculous recipes on AHA
« on: May 09, 2016, 04:14:52 PM »
In the case of these National Homebrew Competition recipes, that is exactly how they were submitted to us so that is how we post them. We don't want to start taking liberties and altering people's recipes.

That being said, the Zymurgy and AHA Web teams are devising a plan to address a standardization of recipes in print and on web, which would cover situations like unhelpful weight measurements and such.

As always, thanks for the feedback!!

Good to have ya back, Denny

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Tuesday Beer Trivia: More Hops

Hey FaradayUncaged and Kramerog-

Guy who made this trivia quiz, here! Here is where I pulled the info from that I based this question off of:

For the Love of Hops by Stan Hieronymus
Page 266, paragraph 1:
"The first time Steve Dresler brewed a wet hop beer at Sierra Nevada he added five to six times the weight in wet hops that he would have were the hops dry. Soon he increased to that between seven to eight times the dry weight. The simple explanation is that wet hops contain about 80 percent water, while dried cones have about 10 percent"

I actually went into this question thinking it was around 5 times, so I was a bit surprised too, but Stan knows a thing or two so I took his word for it  :)

I remembered something similar, but can't seem to track it down. I've found a lot posts for store bought ones... Thanks for chiming in!

Pimp My System / DIY CarbCap: Has anyone made one?
« on: February 25, 2016, 11:10:13 AM »
I was wondering if any AHA Forum users have made their own carbonation caps? I've seen a few innovations online where people get creative with bike tire-tube fittings and things like that. If anyone has made their own (or knows someone who has), I'd be interested in potentially sharing it on as a featured Pimp My System story.

Let me know!

Another interesting xBmt. Thanks for sharing these, Marshall!

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: AHA Recipe WIKI broken?

We're still working on it. We ended up running into some unexpected issues, so it likely will not be going back up until next business week. I will keep this thread updated.

Thank you for your patience as we get this sorted out!

Randy also gave a talk during the 2015 National Homebrewers Conference on these sorts of myths. AHA Members have access to the audio and power point presentation. It's the first seminar under 2015.

The Homebrewopedia should be up and running again by sometime tomorrow.

Thanks for pointing this out. We recently decommissioned the Homebrew CLub Wiki since a very small amount of people use it every year, and it looks like it took the Homebrewopedia down with it.

I'll talk to our webmaster about the Homebrewopedia Wiki since as of now that should still be up.


The Pub / Re: Beer Trivia Quiz, AHA main page.

I got 4/5. Missed the Geo. Washington question.

It was incorrectly published in The Oxford Companion to Beer that Washington's small beer was written in his journal in 1737. The thing about that is it would've meant he was only 5 years old at the time... It was supposed to be 1757, and we've since made that change to the quiz.

Thanks for taking it everyone! If you have a topic you think would make for a cool Tuesday Beer Trivia quiz in the future, I'm all ears!


Check out this video of Miami Heat's Chris Bosh and Dogfish Head founder Sam Calagione touring LA while homebrewing a stout in the back of their stretch limo.


It got me thinking... what other athletes or "celebrities" out there are also homebrewers? Here are a few I know off the top of my head:
  • Jared Veldheer (Arizona Cardinals)
  • Wil Wheaton (Stand By Me, Start Trek)
  • Aisha Tyler (voice of 'Lana' from the animated show Archer)

The American Homebrewers Association (AHA) Governing Committee is soliciting nominations for two opening seats in 2016. Governing Committee positions are held for three-year terms.

If you, or someone you know, would be a good fit in helping shape the American Homebrewers Association, please let us know by following the link below. Nominations are due by November 30, 2015.
