Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Nottingham dry yeast
« on: Today at 07:39:59 AM »
My cider I made this fall with Notty yeast turned out very peachy, to the point where I don't even really care to drink it unfortunately.  In a plain-jane cider, there's nothing for off-flavors to hide behind.  However, I LOVE how my US-05 cider turned out, very very clean.  I will be using US-05 for cider a lot more in future. </tangent>

What temp were you at?  I had mine in the basement around 65-70F and I don't pick up any of those flavors.

I want this:


This is the one at Epcot World Showcase ('Murica of course).  I could smell the smoke from a couple countries away.  Well, at least I still have my WSM...works well for me.

Thanks for clearing things up, Gary, I'm just stoked to hangout and drink (mostly) homebrew with all you cool folks!

Some of us are just old folks! See you at the NHC!

Old is the new cool!

And here's proof!

I hope the laws for venue next year aren't this screwed up.  Where is that going to be again?  ;)
Mars?

Well damn...I better leave now to make it on time. :)

AFAIK, most seminar rooms will be commercial only and seminars that serve homebrew will be in SD room.  No idea how that's gonna work for the banquet.
So, they're going to tell people not to share homebrew during seminars in the 'commercial' rooms?
Most likely have security at the front door.  Does the CA law allow them to bring their own commercial beer into the banquet or does it need to be served by the resort?  We used to argue with guests about that when I worked in the MA hotel business years ago.

There will be blank nametages so you can wrote your forum handle on them to OD yourself.

WDW actually has a ton more stuff since I was there 3 years ago.  I used this app to try and track down some stuff.  http://beersandears.net/

Each park except MK had some great offerings, as my final bill at checkout can attest to.

Sorry to threadjack Wort...your picture definitely awesome!

I was great last year meeting everyone and I hope this tradition continues and grows year to year so it becomes a recognized event at NHC.

Hopefully I'll make the one next year (where ever that may be) and it will be close enough so I can bring some homebrew to share.

Have fun and take pictures!

Final Review no less.  So when people start complaining, the Review and Commentary guys are going to blame you :)

It will be interesting to see who will be the first major competition to use the new guidelines and how smooth it goes.  I'm guessing that NHC2016 will be using the new guidelines then?

Nice.  The closest I get to China is walking by it at Epcot on my way to Germany to grab another beer.

This will be my 5th.  I missed Grand Rapids last year ONLY because my daughter was graduating high school on club night.  Like Jeff said, it's kind of like "Hey, Norm!", but at your class reunion every year, and your class gets bigger and bigger and you somehow remember more and more classmates from all over the world.  It's great hanging out in person with the folks you've been talking with on the boards for so long, putting names to faces, and sharing all those beers.  And its always great judging 2nd round.

Sorry I'm going to miss this year BDawg.  I have a feeling BNA10 is going to be epic.  Have a great time and hope to run into you next year.
