The Pub / Re: My gift to the AHA...

And to you!

It's great that there's such a community here.

People even notice which continent I'm on (and I've posted from four of them), and this is without doubt the friendliest web forum I've ever frequented.

You should be set up now. The forum has most of what you'll need.

Hope to see you online for the January class.

So, Euro AHA fellows, who wants to meet up and do this during this summer? Maybe during the NHC weekend, so we don't feel left out?

Yes I'm serious.

I'd be game, but I may actually be in Seattle talking about Soviet beers.

Incidentall Phil, I have you on the list for a BJCP exam next October, and I'm running a prep course which has webbased distance learning. We've had two classes, and the next is in January. More details here - http://www.bristolbrewers.co.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=265

Well crap, I had no idea the classes were going on. Was there an email sent out? Did you record the web distance stuff for the two previous sessions?

The answer to both of your questions is yes. We even have a BJCP course forum on the Bristol Brewer's forum. If you sign up I'll give you access.

As a Brit who lives in Britain, I can also tell you of a number of great trainline pub crawls. Nearly every station in Britain has a pub nearby.

The Pub / Re: Have to vent....

This all reminds me of the bit in The Restaurant at the End of the Universe where Ford Prefect tries to fly an all balck spaceship and points out that a when you do something a black light lights up in black to tell you you've done it.

No brewing as I'm running a BJCP prep class tomorrow (with a live webcast and remote tastings), and then preparing for a trip to the US to visit family.

There must be a fuse you can pull out, right?

Tape over the light. Problem solved. That fuse might do something else too....

I have many, many things to do, but I finished the article I was writing for Zymurgy, so should probably brew one of the recipes just to be sure....

Equipment and Software / Re: cleaning a nylon mesh bag

I deal with this regularly from apple pressing. I find the best trick is to use a hose to get all the big bits off and then run it through the washing machine on a cold cycle without detergent. I have a front loader, and I don't know how this might work in a top loader, but it does the job very well for me.

Brewing a Belgian Porter/Winter Saison - going to throw in some dark candy syrup and ferment with White Labs Saison II

Apple pressing for Cider on Saturday, and some kegging on Sunday.
