I heard these guys on The Brewing Network last Sunday.  Their site allows you to setup a login, search and rate beer ( 1-5 mugs ) and it will give you suggestions of beer that it thinks you will love or like.   There is also an option to follow you friends who are on it and see how they rated stuff.  The more you rate, apparently the more accurate it will be.

I may not be for everyone, but it gives me an opportunity to find out about other beer that I never hear of because it's not available where I am.

The site is:

I think Ninkasi Brewing in Eugene, OR would have some issue with this.

That's awesome, congratulations!  Hopefully I'll finish my own degree by NHC . . .

I would shoot for that since you'll probably lose a semester's worth of brain cells at NHC. :)

[Sorry, but I can't resist, being from Hawaii... Book'em Dano!

Since he's got an accounting degree, it should be "Close those books, Dano" :)

Go to any good keggers while at school? :)

All kidding aside, congratulations.  I can barely find time to brew, let alone go back to school.

I know its Steve Martin....thats all I can remember about it... one of his standup routines, he said it was his real name.

You have won....the right to change your name to whatever you want.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Airlock blow-off

Dump is a 4 letter word :)

It will probably be fine.  Even with the airlock off, the active fermentation is blowing co2 out the hole so nothing was going to get in.  Ferment it out, bottle, and drink.  No sense dumping now when it may be can always dump later.

"Mr. Sad, Lonely Man...paging Mr. Sad, Lonely Man.  Please report to the customer service desk to pick up a life"  :P

I'm changing my name to Gern Blanston.  ( Bonus points to you if you can tell me where this name comes from without googling it ).

Sam was on the Sunday Session on the Brewing Network and mentioned that they wanted to get it away from football on Sunday and Monday.  Thursday at 8pm is a primetime spot, so I assume the show is doing really well.

The dog wants the beer.  The cat just wants to get away.  Here it is folks...PROOF.   Dogs are better than cats!!

Great picture.  Do you have any kids and were they left out to make room for the beer? :)

I find the red coolers are more susceptible to scratching than the blue ones :)

One scratch?  I must have 20 in mine...guess I better stop stirring my mash with a pitchfork!
