If you can get to Willie May's  scotch house, I believe in the 9th Parrish, GO! Best damn fried chicken you will ever eat but get there early- lunch, they don't do dinner cause they run outta food;)

I read this article as well, left me curious to know if the author actually had pre and post buy out bottles to compare or if his evaluations were strictly off memory and thus, suspect at best. Not that I didn't agree with his thoughts but curious nonetheless.

Didn't sound like they did a side-by-side comparison. Don't think that would help much - these are light or hoppy beers that wouldn't take cellaring very well. The hops would certainly drop out quite a bit. Because of this, a side-by-side might favor the new beers regardless of how 'close' they were or weren't to the originals.
True. It was just a thought i had as I read through the article

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Homebrew at festivals

I don't think setting up a booth and doing a demo would be much of an issue as home brewing is legal in all state. Serving samples is where the law steps in and as mentioned every state and community will be different.

There is a large fest in Illinois each year. First year they had it they had a homebrew tent sponsored by a couple clubs and it was a hit, then they discovered what they did was illegal, second year no homebrew tent:( they then petitioned the local officials and got the law ammeneded and have had the tent each year since:)

Hey cool! Tell her to stop by the brewery and ask for me and I will prepare you a mix pack personally!
Thanks Keith, that'd be awesome, I'll try and get in touch with her and let her know.

In commercial brewing we passivate all our stainless with acid about once every quarter. Kegs less frequently than this. New stainless that is not passivated will almost always leave a metallic taste in the beer as the oxidative protected coating does not set (and there are still microscopic pieces of metal on the tanks from welds and manufacturing.)

I tried to allude to passivation in one of my earlier post. If it were me I would buy some acid from 5 star and passivate my kettle and all my kegs. I have a hunch it is coming from your kettle though.
Thanks Keith, I actually put off my brew day tomorrow to do this to the kettles, even though its a new brew easy system with only 4 batches if figured what the heck. I also dumped 2 kegs, found no rust, but they are older so those as well just to be sure.

BTW, met a nice woman from Huntsville the other night while out with my wife. She raved about your beer and the craft scene there! She's heading home and then back again in a few weeks on business and promised me a sample pack of your beers since I can't get any in the Chicago 'burbs.

Cheers and thanks,
Gary

For the grains, I was thinking more, if you, or your LHBS had an improperly stored bag of malt that might be a cause, but it would probably have to be something like the same base malt used in all four beers.
Yeah, different grains and my LHBS is a really busy place, they go through a lot of grain weekly with proper storage so I know I'm always getting pretty fresh ingredients. I don't store anything at home except hops in the freezer.

Usually I brew once a month to 6 weeks on a Saturday or Sunday. I'll generally start about 10am and finish up between 2 and 3pm. I can usually grab some lunch during the boil this way. It allows me to sleep in a bit, and get some family time in pre and post brewing.

That being said , Daughters travel soccer schedule kicks in April so my anticipated schedule will soon fly right out the window!

Did they all use the same grain mill, or wort chiller? Mill could be wearing out a bearing or axle and throwing some metal shavings. Wort chiller is just another metal to check. 

Any malt you used in all four?
I'm checking my mill this weekend, as far as malt, only the pale and the IPA used similar grain bills and malt, the Pilsner was totally different. Been really busy with work so I'm hoping to get some time this weekend to really dig in to all this
