People pay for beer glasses?
Oh I pay for beer glasses.  Everytime I bring one home, the wife gets on me about another glass.   ;D

I love the glass from NHC2012...I hope Philly has something similar.

I voted for $5 for the shaker glass style.  Anything above that, I rather save the money for the beer and use the glasses I have.

The hotel info is up on the conference website.  It's the Philadelphia Marriott downtown.

That's an interesting move to release the hotel info before we can book at the discounted rate. Either I get a room now for a higher rate or wait and risk that there will be no more rooms left.

They also haven't decided on the speakers yet, so I don't even know if I will be going.

Kai

The AAA rate is $332 per night :o  ...I'd wait.

I assume since they said the conference was going to accommodate 2500, they'd have more than 100 rooms for the block...although it will sell out quick, I'm sure.

The room plus tax is $1.20 cheaper than last year. ;D

I wasn't getting them over the weekend as well.

I think someone at the AHA kicked one of the servers when Denver lost  ;D

I would do the keg.  Start with a measured sample and add drops until you are satisified, then extrapolate that to the full batch and add to the keg.

edit:  yeah...what Denny said ( sneaking in under the wire :) )

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: No lager activity

Only problem is that it is going to be severely underpitched.

I don't see how. At four months old, the smack packs were probably 80-90% viable. 3 * 80 billion / (19 L * 10°P) = 1.3 million/mL-°P.
I'm not sure I can agree with the 80-90% viability after 4 months since they leave the plant at 95%, even though Wyeast guarantees it for 6 months.  And not knowing how it was handled getting to the store and into their fridge, as well as the package not swelling too much.  I think Mr. Malty putting it at 10% is a little extreme however.

I agree with Dave on waiting.  Even with a starter, it takes a couple days for krausen on mine to show.  Only problem is that it is going to be severely underpitched.

[...]Hiney Wine[...]

you can find it in the finer stores, right between the buns!

I used to hear those hiney wine commercials driving to school in the morning.

We used to pre-game with Bud pounders that we could get at the Mobil station right down the street from the dorm.  A guy in our suite had a Mobil credit card his father gave him for gas, but this particular station didn't differentiate what was being purchased.  You know it's bad when you drink the "good stuff" beforehand  ;D

Also was enjoying rooting for the little man from the PNW.  Too bad his defense failed in the final :30.

I really didn't care who won that game but what a great finish!  I imagine the Packers were just a little happy it ended the way it did.

I was always ahead of the curve.  In high school, I drank Michelob Light, while everyone else was drinking Budweiser. 

In college at UVM, we would drink Molson Brador - 6 % ( Canada was only about 45 minutes from school ), although we downed our share of Stroh's 30 packs and stuff we called Hiney Wine, which was a Bartel and James wine cooler ( $12 a case but the next morning made you feel like you had open heart surgery and they forgot to put the heart back in).

After college, Sam Adams ( mostly Boston Lager ) was my beer of choice, and it's been uphill from there.

Bummed out about the Broncos. I was hoping Denver would knock out the Pats.

Go Texicans!
