I wonder if Michael "Mufasa" Ferguson knows about this.  Every time I've heard him speak about the AHA, he's been a big supporter.  Maybe they are allowed to do whatever they want now.

Portland's closed at 751's rigged I say.  :P

Looks like this is going to be a great NHC this year.

Registered and paid for 3 entries.   Decided not to go with a new judging center this year after the debacle that was Saratoga Springs last time...

In past years I had sent my entries to Philly and everything was great.  Without opening up old wounds, I'm glad I'm sending there again this year.

Philly region is in the lead with Portland at it's heels.  My 4 are in and paid for!

Events / Re: NHC On Lone Entry open yet?

12 noon for us east coasters, Fritz.  (10am mountain ).

Just like the conference registration, try hitting the site around noon today.

Anyone want to guess the over/under on when all the regions will fill up.  7500 entries plus the Canadian competition...does anyone doubt it will fill up after seeing the response for the conference registration!

Good luck to all who enter ( and especially those judges that taste my entries  ;D )

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Poll: Do you use a secondary fermentation

I stopped using secondary because I'm lazy  ;D

The only time I use them is when I want to reuse the yeast from a beer that I'm going to dry hop ( rack to secondary then dry hop rather than trying to rinse the yeast later ).  If I'm not reusing the yeast, I dry hop right in the primary.

WooHoo, Spring is coming folks!!!!!!!

I thought Spring was already here then this damn snowstorm hit.  Can't complain...we've had 1 big storm in October ( yes October ) for 12" and about 7-12" expected for this storm today in NH.  Everything in between has been 2" or less or rain.

I meant to check my hops the other day but forgot.  My wife's tulips had already started sprouting about a week they are buried under 7" of snow.

The BJCP exam study guide also has suggestions to doctor beer for certain off flavors.

Not yet but I hope to soon...just been really busy at work and at home lately.  My son is into DC Universe, but then he's only 9 and has all the time in the world.

How is STO so far?

My wife just finished the first book and want sme to read it too.

At least Jennifer Lawrence is hot, so you should be able to forgive your "friend".

Actually what bothers me more is the overuse of acronyms these days.  I've actually heard someone say, "For your FYI".  I just wanna scream.

Right up there with "ATM Machine"
