Homebrew Clubs / Re: BN Army wins club of the year.
« on: July 09, 2012, 05:50:02 AM »
I didn't hear any boo's either, but plenty of applause?  Most of what you hear is coming from the front table where the BN setup and gets picked up on audio.  And I can tell you there was not much in my section either.

Looking at that crowd and a LOT of people sitting on their hands, it's obvious that there is a lot hard "feelings" out there.  Justin's speech, now that I've had chance to listen to it is pretty funny, about how he has always been proud of every club that has come up on the stage for COTY...

  Are there other ways to remove the chlorine?

If it is chlorine, you can fill you kettles the day before you brew and it will evaporate off.  If you local water supply has Chloramine, then campden tablets ( 1 tablet is good for 20 gallons ) work well.  I cut mine in half ( doing 5 gallon batches ) and I still have the original bottle I bought.

you guys know where you buy epsom salts and chalk?  Is there food grade chalk?

Epsom salts at the grocery store or pharmacy.  The chalk ( Calcium Carbonate ), I get from the LHBS or online.

(I boo the Yankee's and Patriots, root for the Cub's very year - just my nature)

Oh, I'll be looking for you in Philly!!!  I can accept that first boo, but the second, well them's is fightin' words  ;)  And if the Red Sox can't win the WS ( i.e. 2012 ) then GO CUBBIES!!

As far as the NB or White Labs club comparison, I believe Justin has mentioned on the show that it wasn't even him that formed the BN club, but some BN Army member.  I'll have to listen back to last years post-NHC show to verify.

The Pub / Re: What's the Weather Like Where You Are?

Hot and muggy yesterday when I was brewing my stout.  I wonder if the gallon of sweat that dripped into the kettle is why my numbers were off.

I'd much rather brew when it's below 30 F than when it's above 90 F.

Based on this thread, I went to Home Depot and bought the parts for the hop spider.


I`m brewing a dry stout today using the BIAB method (inspired by Brad Smith's talk at NHC), using the hop spider, and adding my roasted grains later in the mash (inspired by Gordon Strong).

So much for changing one thing in your process at a time.

Happy 4th everyone!!

I can't say anything about where it might be, but I can tell you that I haven't heard any mention of Atlanta.

Ya' know, Fred said the same thing on the shuttle back to the airport.  I think you guys are just touting the party line  ;).

Honestly, I'd like to survive Philly before worrying about 2014, but I understanding the people who can't make it next year.  I was in that same boat a couple years ago before attending Seattle for my first.

I also heard Atlanta, but Michigan would be good too.  At the rate it's growing, they are going to need them at places like the Meadowlands or better yet, Gillette Stadium  ;D

I don't have a problem with BN in particular, but I would hope that BN can encourage members to join local clubs and be a part of that community.

As someone who listens to all the shows, this is done extensively, almost to the point of "ok we get it" and will be again on the next session I'm sure.

Does anyone know the total points yet?  If last year is any indication, then we are talking about the BN, DOZE, or Quaff being COTY.
