Gordon - do you add the spices in the boil? Or do you add them after fermentation? I've done both, and can't seem to decide which I prefer. I think I prefer the boil, just out of sheer laziness. But I go back and forth.
Are you saying people actually used that word at a professional conference? Doesn't sound like anything I ever attended.
National Homebrew Conference. American Homebrewers Association.
Did the BN enter any of the club-only competitions in the past year? If so, how did they chose which member had the best example to submit?
I have nothing to add except that I think it'd be funny if all of the Northern Brewer forum-ites started listing their club as "NB Navy".
[I belong to their club. I was the club president. I go to several meetings a year. I judge in their competitions. I proctor exams held there. I'm active on their email list. I hang out with them at the conference. I bring kegs to serve in their booth at club night. I wear the club shirt at club night. I go to outside social events with them. I'll match my interactions with this group with anyone who lives within a couple miles of any other club. Most importantly, I'm a member of the club because I choose to be. And I continue to be a member even though I'm done entering the NHC. Same as I was before I entered the NHC.
And for those keeping count, they would have won Club of the Year even if I didn't enter at all. Check the numbers from Cincinnati for the best example. Something like 8 different club members medalled in the 2nd round, many of them golds. They won it with people with St. Paul zip codes. Don't take that achievement away from them.
How about those Yankees.
Now the BN is like the New England Patriots. After they won their Superbowls, everyone said they cheated and started gunning for them.Everyone knows the Pats cheated.
