All Grain Brewing / Re: all grain pumpkin ale recipe

I like Jamil's recipe from Brewing Classic Styles...definitely not 6 month aging time.

I also use real pumpkin and double bake it before adding it to the mash.

Wow - the competition must have been stiff in Belgian Strong. My beer got a 46.3 but did not place.

No score on one of my entries so I am not sure what went on there.

Did you already get your scoresheets back?  Or are you viewing your scores on the website?

46.3 and not place?  Wow indeed!

Out of curiosity, when (or where if they already have) do they post the Club of the Year scores?


This is where they were posted last year, so I'd assume they would just update this page.

When?  I have no idea but I'm sure they are just getting back to normal operations.  They definitely deserve a vacation with all the hard work they do for the conference.

5PM outside Salon AB!

Sorry I missed the meetup but I wasn't checking the forum for time and place.  I looked around the lobby of the 5th floor but couldn't see anything that looked like a meetup (just mass confusion with everyone getting out of seminars).

Were there a lot of people there?  Oh well, better luck next year.

I had 14 beers in the first round.  I find that usually 30% of my beers move to the 2nd round and maybe another 30% may medal.  I think if we limit the number of first round entries to 5 you will end up with a lot of brewers tied for the Ninkasi with 1 gold medal.

Congratulations on your medals and Ninkasi, and to your club for the Gambrinus award.  We were a table away from you and it was cool to see how excited everyone got!!

I bet several of the larger shops sell wholesale (like MoreBeer mentioned above) to LHBS's

Morebeer has their wholesale subsidiary, Fermentap that sells to LHBS.  Maybe a call to them would help.

Philly is 58 miles from the Atlantic Ocean.
Manchester is 34 miles.
Baltimore is 116 miles.
Orlando is 45 miles.

Technically none of them are ON the east coast.  Close enough for a homebrewers' association this size though!   8)
Seagulls s*** on my car while I'm at work, so I consider myself to be on the coast  ;D

I have seen a couple of references that this is only the second NHC on the East Coast. One was in the Philly Beer Scene, and mentioned the Manchester NH conf. as the first.

What about Baltimore and Orlando (which is about as close to the Atlantic as Manchester)?

Hey, I'm on the east coast in Manchester right now...East Coast of the Merrimack River  ;D

But I can be at the ocean in about 35 minutes.

I am now accepting bets on how many bottles arrive in philly.

My bet is they all arrive to Philly...they just may not be intact.  ;D

We do have a room! It's one of the ballrooms even, so break out some beers and make sure we have everything we need to have some fun. I'm trying to secure some signage to make it more apparent.

Hey folks. any idea when we are going to try to make this meetup happen? I'm starting my final planning and my wife would like to know when I will be MIA.

So the last seminar for the day gets over at 5:30pm but I don't know when the competition judging will be done.  I'm going to definitely grab some food real quick and guess I'll be there around 6:15-6:30pm.  Is there an official start time?

The graybeards around here may recall back in the halcyon days of the 1970s that it was very hard to get Coors anywhere but Colorado and westwards.  A huge mystique built up around it and everybody east of the Mississippi had to get their hands on some.  People would go out of their way to bring cases of it back East.  I'm sure if they had done that survey back then, Coors definitely would have been on top of the list (though, back then you'd have to had made the list the "Top 10 Beers in the Country" or something like that).

I bet some even hired a truck driver to bring a load back and he had a guy driving a Trans Am running interference with the cops.  ;D
