Cool.

At first I thought you were collecting maple sap.  How pissed would you be if you forgot to close the spigot?  ;D

Events / Re: NHC Certificates...

If memory serves, the first round site will mail them along with the scoresheets.

The first round site doesn't mail them, they come from the AHA.  I go my scoresheets about a month ago, all in the 30's range and did not receive the certificates.

Hated him as a Charger ( I'm a Pats fan ) but respected the player.  Totally loved him as a Patriot...a true sportsman, hard worker, and never seemed to let his fame get the best of him.

Every year I'm kinda hope he signs back on with the Pats...I guess that is over.

It will be interesting to see what develops in the investigation.

RIP Junior!

If every AHA member got 1 entry, there would be in excess of 30K entries.  That would exacerbate the problem.
If everyone got one entry, and the Ninkasi was based on the medal points divided by the number of entries - every Gold winner would be Ninkasi winner! Problem solved!

Oh wait, what?

Awesome, it will be just like t-ball...everyone gets a trophy  ;D

Zymurgy / Re: Why should I renew my subscription?
« on: April 30, 2012, 06:45:27 AM »
Maybe Zymurgy needs a centerfold to spice thing up a little:



Thank you for starting this thread.  I've been so busy I realized I still haven't renewed for next year ( mine expires on June 30th ).

Zymurgy is a great magazine and a bonus for my dues.  I only have a couple places in NH that offer discounts, but luckily one is where I attend my homebrew club meetings so I get good use out of it each year. 

I am mostly a member to support the AHA, whether it be changing legislation, setting up competitions, or providing this great resource of information, the AHA Forum.

Now if I can only get them to work on getting better beer at Walt Disney World.  I spent the last week there and the best I could find was a Black and Tan in England at the World Showcase in Epcot.  ( Even the beer at Germany wasn't that great...and that is a sin ). :)

Just make sure you check the wind before relieving yourself.  You still have to climb down.   ;)

Paul

They should climb with parachutes so they can jump off when they are done.

now he does "tank work" mostly.

This is the only tank I'd be willing to climb into:


And as far as climbing towers, "Hell No!!"

Steve,

I notice from the list that Smuttynose in Portsmouth, NH has signed on but they are not listed in the directory search.  Are they a recent add-on?  What is the discount they provide?

Thanks.

Thanks for pointing that out! With some of the newer participants, we had not yet added them to the directory. I expect all listings to be available by the end of the week.

Thanks Steve...it's up there now.  20% off all purchases!  That's amazing.  Hopefully that means bottles too.

I cringe when people cringe over mindless blather over the interwebs.

I participate in a couple forums where there can be heated political discussions,  I fond that I tend to ignore the comments of people who can't spell or write properly, no matter which side of an issue they're on.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Any suggestion on scales?
« on: April 19, 2012, 07:00:22 AM »
A bunch of folks on here bought this one awhile ago:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000FSWB9K/ref=oh_details_o01_s01_i00

I like it for weighing out grain but use a smaller food scale that I've had for years for hops.

I bought this one and it works pretty well.  It isn't accurate enough to weigh small amounts of salts.   I used it to weigh my grain container ( vittle vault ) emtpy, and then use it to weigh the container with grains, subtract the empty weight and I know what I have left.  Up to 55 lbs is a big plus and the retactable readout too.
