Now the BN is like the New England Patriots.  After they won their Superbowls, everyone said they cheated and started gunning for them.

So maybe it's time for the other clubs to step it up and start gunning for CoTY...because you know the BN will be next year.

On the OT, I found that following the #NHC2011 hashtag on twitter was helpful in seeing what was going on.

I did this and it only made me kick myself harder for not going to the conference  >:(

Seriously, it was great information being posted and I WILL use it next year in Seattle!!

It's been a killer conference so far.  Really smooth, great facility, lots of great beer.....hell, people even attended my seminar for some reason I can't fathom.  Tonight is club night which is always the highlight for me.  If you're thinking about going to Seattle next year, don't hesitate...just do it!

I've been watching the twitter feeds from the AHA and I think the hardest part is picking which talk to go to.  There are some really good talks happening at the same time.  Do you typically do your talk a couple times during the conference?

Dumbest comment I heard from the commentators near the end of game 7.

"Boston beat the British, and they will beat British Columbia"  or something like that...

I don't watch, follow or really even condone hockey but anything that puts USA beating Canada gets a thumbs up in my book.  ;D

Was surprised to see the Vancouver fans' reaction. Taking it waaaaay too seriously, fellas.

At least it's better than Detroit where they burn stuff when they win.

As a Boston fan, I can say there have been some pinheads that make the fans look really bad after the Patriots/Red Sox championships.  Some people just like to burn s*** down I guess.

365 days and counting... :D

I am planning to attend my 1st NHC in Seattle, as long as something doesn't come up to screw up my plans like every other year ( surgeries, death, job, etc ).

As you might expect, there's going to be the usual grumbling about another West Coast NHC, but it's all up to the local clubs getting together and putting a bid in.  With that said, I think there will be a big push for Philly in 2013.

Can you directly set the evaporation rate, or do you have to extrapolate from the starting volume/ending volume measurements?

I don't have 2.0 in front of me but you can set your evaporation rate in the equipment setup.

I had about 5 minutes to spare this weekend so I downloaded and installed it.  I love that fact that everything I had customized in version 1.4 carried over to 2.0 seamlessly.

I'm looking forward to playing around with it this week.

BoSoxBrews...I like him already.


Just to save a little face here, there are plenty of educated and enlightened areas in Alabama. For instance, Huntsville has more rocket scientists and engineers per capita than almost anywhere else in the US.

And don't forget Spacecamp!!

For you Opie and Anthony fans, this guy is the same dummy(along with an assistant) they had a sound bite on concerning some type of beer related legislation(if memory serves, it was about allowing higher alcohol beers to be sold); "what's wrong with beer we got? It drank pretty good..." SMH...

I loved O&A when they were local hosts in the Boston area.  Whip'em Out Wednesdays ( WOW ) were the best!!!!  Then they had to get fired for that April Fool's joke about Mayor Menino being killed in a car accident in Florida.  Haven't listened to them since they went to pay radio.

I'm not sure I agree with the adjustments to the bill with lowering the amounts and taking mead out of the equation.  I really don't think it will matter with these people.  Someday I believe they will turn it around.  I'm just glad the rest of the country isn't following suit.

I saw it after seeing the Facebook post this morning.  Truly unbelievable!

Let's hope the AHA and Alamba homebrewers can educate these folks!

"What is M-E-A-D anyways?  ::)

Also...if there's a bootlegger in your county and you know where he is...arrest him.  It's probably that guy's next door neighbor!  Geez!

Mosquitoes area attracted to CO2

Fine.  Bite me all you want, but stay away from my kegerator!!!!
No mosquito-bourne diseases for this homebrewer.  I take no chances.   It's DEET for me!

After seeing what Babalu is going through right now, you can be sure that the family and I get covered head to toe in bug repellent.
