General Homebrew Discussion / AHA website issues????? help please
« on: February 24, 2014, 07:56:34 AM »
My friend is trying to join the AHA but the AHA website isn't working.  you can get to the main landing page but none of the links work. They all say NOT FOUND on this server. I can't look at my Account, I can't go to issues of zymurgy and my friend can't join.  Obviously he needs to join asap as he and I plan on attending the NHC and he needs to be a member to go.

I only posted this in this forum as I did not know where else to post it as even the CONTACT US link doesn't work.

Does anyone else see this issue with the website?

Any help is appreciated

FWIW, I think my Cascades are weak.  After boiling a wort, I split it into 3 equal portions and did a hopstand with each portion with 4 oz of homegrown whole Cascades, 2 oz of Citra, 2 oz of Summit, respectively.  The Cascade split is tasty but nowhere near the intensity of the Citra and Summit.  Obviously the Citra and Summit are very powerful hops, but I thought I that doubling the Cascade would somewhat compensate.

Were the Cascade hops still wet hops or were they dried?

So Rolling Rocks flavor was caused by faulty exhaust which allowed some condensation back into the boil..Does that mean any condensation that drips back in causes DMS?   If I use a Hop Spider  won't some condensation likely drip back in? Will this cause DMS?

Just trying to learn! so don't beat me up for any silly questions.

I only in the last year made the move from the stove with a 4 gallon pot to the garage with a 15 gallon pot and never noticed any off taste before since I always brewed with the lid off.  I do partial mash....and usually do IPA's  which i have never noticed any off tastes.   But recently have made a couple of pale ale and they have all had an off flavor that i can't put my finger on.  It almost has a "burnt" type flavor...

 I do usually leave my lid cracked or the pot tends to want to boil over...but condensation does from and drips back in.....looks like my methods have changed!

Glad I asked!   The lid will remain off from now on!

I was curious if everyone here left their lid on or off their pot during the boil.  I have a friend who leaves his off and I leave mine on...just curious if it makes any type of difference.
