I love the taste brown malt gives.  It tastes like a toasted bagel.

Crash cool and keg here too

Even dry hop in Primary, since I'm not reusing the yeast.

Maybe if you ware planning a long conditioning period it is worth it.

EKG, because I said so.

Hmm, then between 1st Gold and Fuggles.  I just don't know the other one and its expensive.

if you're afraid of the flavor contributions, why not just top mash a very little Carafa III, 2 oz goes a long way.  I used maybe 2 oz, ran through a coffee grinder to make powder then sprinkled it on top of my mash for a brownish Saison.

Old club already well established.  But change of structure this year, added 2 more positions.  To make a total of 5, each of use have a range of responsibilities with overlap of each other.

So I'm a new officer in my club, any words of wisdom that can be bestowed upon me?

One thing I was wondering, how to go about hitting up local shops/maybe breweries for "help"?

I have no idea where you get that from.

I would much rather see one or more smaller east coast breweries grow to fill the need than to have a larger company come in from anywhere and do so.

But Tom, if the need is for Sierra Nevada...I mean we do have a lot of great breweries over here, But SN is my go to beer, its just about everywhere I go, so I can trust to find at least a good craft beer even if I am at a nonbeer bar.  Should the "local" beers step up and take the place of that over here, sure, but they aren't or the buyers aren't buying them over SN.

I'm all for SN on the can, Pale ale on the beach and much easier cleanup.

I'm going to say best show ever, whether its staged stuff or not, Tim is my new personal hero.  Anyone who can rock overalls like him is cool in my book.

The ABC Agent is pretty funny to watch, he does near crap his pants when he saw the dog, I guess it makes sense bodies can be hard to find in the Virginia backwoods.  The camo isn't a fashion statement its a way of life.

Legality aside, its cool to see they are keeping the tradition alive, what if the "early" homebrewers didn't do it illegally, where would we be?
