Homebrew Clubs / Re: BN Army wins club of the year.
« on: July 06, 2012, 08:31:56 AM »
(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.

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.

Equipment and Software / Re: Hop spider design

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

Homebrew Clubs / Re: BN Army wins club of the year.
« on: June 26, 2012, 11:54:34 AM »
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.

Did not hear the boos from the cheap seats, but the mood was definately subdued ( except for the jerk in the green BNA7 shirt screaming at the top of his lungs, i.e. me ).

I've always entered under the BN and was fortunate enough to contribute to the award this year.  Until recently, I could not affiliate myself with a local club due to their meeting times conflicting with my schedules.  I have now found a club semi-nearby that meets on a day and time that I can make.  I've only been going for about 7-8 months and we're still working on formalizing the club direction ( although we are an official AHA club ).  So next year, I will be entering this club for my competitions. 

But I will always be a member of the BN Army, and will continue to celebrate our successes.  And I can guarantee next year if a different club wins, the BN will stand and cheer louder than anyone ( except for the winning club of course )...because in the end, it's all about the beer!

Brew Strong BN Army and Congratulations!!

To the OP:

I love stuff like this.  I grew up in VT but would spend a week during the summer with my Aunt and Uncle in CT.  When I went to college, one of my roommates was from the same town in CT, and so is my wife ( met through the college roommate ).  It is amazing..."It's a Small World Afterall"  (there...you can all thank me for putting that song in your head for the next 24-36 hours  ;) )
