I'm having trouble registering. It says that everything is $1000!  Anyone else have this problem, and how did you fix it?

well, maybe I will get a hotel room... but I can't pay 140 a night... If I end up needing one, I can walk over to one of the cheap hotels near by.

You can certainly do that, but take it from a seasoned conference veteran...it's MUCH better to stay at the conference hotel than to be even next door.  How about getting a roommate to knock the price down?

Or several room-mates.....take turns sleeping on the floor.
You may want to require them to take a shot of beano before agreeing to share your room  :D ( Watch out for the Yeast Ghosts )

I booked the hotel but no matter how I try the book the conference on the AHA webiste I get this error:

"There are one or more errors with your registration and it cannot be saved to the cart at this time. Please review your selections and then add the registration to the cart"

I have tried the full package and the social package options - same error.

You have to make sure you check the "No Guest" option if you are not registering a guest...took me 5 minutes to figure that one out.

Hotel and conference booked.  Obviously the servers are overloaded but it will eventually go through.

It felt like I was trying to get Buffett tickets.

It can be done, but it is not fun.

I'd go with at least a 10 gallon pot, but you need to consider if you will go to larger batches in the future.  I was doing full wort boils in a 7.5 gallon pot with Fermcap-S and a spray bottle of water.  I then moved to a 10 gallon pot since I doubt I will ever do more than 5 gallon batches.

When did Wisconsin become Alabama?

Let's hope the good guys prevail.  Stuff like this really brings to light the things we take for granted in our states.

Good luck Wisconsin!

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: To decant or not to decant??

I'd just pitch it.  In the future, you could make it about 18 hours before the time you expect to pitch.  That way the yeast we be very active and fermentation should take right off.
