Here we go Yankees, Here we go!!!

Do I even gotta? *sigh* guess so!

Yankees Suck!

(but not nearly as much as Jose Canseco when he "played" for the Sox)

I love Magnum. Good clean bittering.

Typically, I use a high alpha for bittering to avoid too much "vegetation" in the kettle. This is both the greedy miser in me not wanting to lose more beer and the culinary "artiste" in me wanting to avoid all the lovely green phytochemicals that plants carry.

Having said all of that, there's times when that greeness is part of the character profile, so... :)

There's several other Bay Area folk on board, but your experience with the Malts seems to reflect what's been going on for the past few years. The club's just going more and more dormant which is unfortunate since they've been around for a damn long time.

This was my favorite Gumball Headish beer. Bigger and hoppier though, cause I'm a homebrewer. :)

We haven't been able to secure any location yet, but we should know one or another in a day or so.

I don't know how fast the annoucement will be, but given that all the votes were online this year - it shouldn't be long.

They can't hold things off until the conference because the new members of the GC have to make their plans to be there. (Weds afternoon at the conference is the annual Governing Committee Face to Face meeting.)

And when you talk with the AHA folks (probably Janis), don't be disheartened if you find your self 2 years away from your COC comp. That's just the way the waitlist works.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Brass or Chrome Faucets?

+1200 on the Forward Seals.

They are more expensive, but they work wonders, particularly in low volume serving situations like you, me and the bumblebee homebrewer.

With the regular rear seal faucets, the beer dries out on the lever mechanism basically locking the tap closed with dried goo. The forward seals don't let that happen and instead you'll get an easy open without having to feel likc you're possibly breaking your taps, tower or bar everytime you pour your first beer.

If you have a frozen tap, you'll have to break out the hot water to clean it out.

I assume you're talking Schaarbeek Cherries. Sadly, they don't even grow enough of those in Belgium anymore and its a rare Kriek that uses them exclusively.

Well, the Hop Woo is done and burbling away in the kegs.

Today's split brew will be a Citra Saison and a amber spiced Belgian.
