Homebrew Competitions / Re: NHC 2016 Final Round scores

Congrats to forum regular theDarkSide who got a Silver in European Amber Lager!

Congrats! I take full credit if I judged it. lol

Or blame because I didn't get Gold :)

Although the gold went to the Ninkasi winner, so I can't be too upset.  My silver in 2012 was 2nd to the Homebrewer of the Year...always a bridesmaid.. ;)

Dang it... I was hoping for Austin Texas.  Oh well.  Should still be fun.  I'm not making it to Baltimore this year, but I'll hope to go next year (and hope they change the name back to NHC.....)

I think in the past Texas was out due to some outdated alcohol laws.  I'm not sure if it's still the case though.

I would suspect so, since they usually give you a bag to put all the swag into.  I've seen them at other conferences.

Being an avid disc golfer, I can tell you all that you'd have a great time here.  On top of great beer, a beautiful park, and some disc golf fun, you'll get to network with other homebrewer / disc golfers.  Then maybe you can make it an annual tradition of playing some disc golf at the annual Homebrew Con meetings like I do. 

Cheers!

The one in Grand Rapids was the best I've ever played.  Of course it was the only one I've ever played.  It was a blast though.

Is it still being updated?  For example, the NHC website schedule shows the AHA Forum meetup at 12:45 - 1:45pm, but the app shows it from 11:15am - 12:15pm.

Since it's in the social club area, can we bring our own stuff in or does is it limited to stuff that went through beer services?

I'm want to bring a brown ale from my local brewery that has won several medals for Drew since he's trying to resurrect the style.

DREW'S trying to resurrect the style?  Hell, my Noti Brown Ale (in the recipe wiki) was the first beer I ever won an award for, I brew it often and promote the style heavily.  He's a johnny come lately!  ;)

Well...from a commercial standpoint at least.  I'll bring some for you too Denny.

Other Fermentables / Re: First Hard Apple Cider - Any Tips?
« on: May 26, 2016, 05:30:20 AM »
So I'm too lazy to look back through 1 page of posts, but Drew Beechum has a nice book on making hard cider http://www.amazon.com/Everything-Hard-Cider-Book-making/dp/1440566186/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8

Also, if you are an AHA member you have access to the past NHC seminars.  Gary Awdey did an excellent talk in Grand Rapids on Post-Fermentation Cider Adjustments.  Go to the 2014 seminars at this link https://www.homebrewersassociation.org/how-to-brew/resources/conference-seminars/

I've used both as a resource and have done well in competitions with ciders.  Not to mention having really great tasting cider available to me whenever I'm in the mood (i.e. all the time).

About 3/4 the way through right now...good stuff.  Even though we all know Denny is not a fan of the NEIPA style (yet :) ), it's nice to hear him keep an open mind.  My biggest gripe about people looking down on them are the ones who say the brewers are putting out a flawed product and not caring about quality.  While this may be true in some cases, for the breweries I frequent in New England, this couldn't be further from the truth.

Also, you guys missed a couple "bleeps" when talking to John Hall.  No big deal for me, but you seemed to be trying to bleep out all the other stuff...except dickhole...lol
