I read yesterday that Seth MacFarlane is negotiating to redo the Flintstones.

Maybe the car could have a collector to catch the water "exhaust"...and a special button to eject the water towards the sidewalk when you see someone you don't like  :P

Prices have dropped a few cents in the last couple days.  A local Shell station is at $3.85 per gallon.

When are they going to perfect Methane burning cars?  I love Mexican food.  ;D

I just cut back my second year hops ( Centennial and Cascade ) to leave the strongest 4 per bine on the trellis.  Just didn't feel right cutting them back.  I probably cut back 12-15 per plant.  They are going crazy.

I also agree on carbonating in keg and transferring.  You could even carbonate a little higher to account for loss in transfer and it may sit out a bit before being judged so a small amount more would account for that as well, just don't over do it.

Last week, most places were $3.95, but a couple stations have dropped this week to $3.88...what a bargain!

Would it make a difference if Charlie P wore it for a day?  :D

I do agree though a t-shirt as a thank you is a little weak.  Maybe a discount on BJCP testing for lifetime members or a voucher for a couple free entries to the NHC competition.

Or nothing at all except the feeling of supporting a great organization.

Janis - thanks for the hard work this time of year!

I imagine Janis must feel like an Accountant at tax season around this time of the year.

Thank you.

2097 judging is continuing until May 8th.   For the people in the crowd who have made second round before, what was the due by date in past years for 2nd round?  Wasn't it something like the end of May?

Let's just hope Janis has a chance to get the info to the people who move on in time to get there stuff together and shipped by the deadline.

I think that's a safe bet.

I guess it doesn't matter since the score sheets are received earlier than the NHC posting anyways.  I'm sure it has to do something with having the database complete before releasing it to the site.

The only advantage I can see is the people who know they are advancing can rebrew their entries if they know they are going to the second round.  But the only way to alleviate that would be to not release any scoresheets until everyone is done, which I doubt would fly ( nor would I want that to happen ).  

But let's not forget that the NE region WAS one of those early judging sites.

Equipment and Software / Re: Beersmith

I've used both and like beersmith better.  I particularly like the feature where you can enter grains by % and scale down to a homebrew size recipe.  Very handy when you get a recipe from a commercial brewer who gives you percentages.  Promash may do this as well but I haven't bothered to look.
