CARDINALS. That is all.

Signed this last night.

We need to get the whole AHA behind this issue.

Agreed. I signed yesterday.

Every now and then - clicking unread to refresh the list of topics... it will wipe out everything as if I had clicked the mark all read button. Probably happens to me every second or third day.

Yep. This happens to me all the time. Probably everyday, but I'm on a lot due to my job being really boring. I'll just use Tapatalk on mobile to see the most recent stuff when that happens.

Would be nice to have that fixed though.

I am always having trouble with login.I get locked out trying to log in on multiple tries.they should not have this feature.I just found out that my password for login on the asso. is different then the forum.why would your password be different.This makes no sense.If these issues can not be changed I would like to be logged in all the time .Is this possible.

I also have this issue. The AHA login doesn't stay logged in, I have to re-login if I head to the BA store, then I have to re-login if I go to the forum. I finally set up my forum to be automatic login, but when I go back to the AHA website to read eZymurgy or something, I have to re-login. It's quite annoying.

What would ever possess a brewery to come up with that abomination???

Girly beer, Asian market.  No offense, Amanda!

None taken - I'm German!  ;D

Dang. That's bad.

We are heading to Boulder/Fort Collins/Denver next week, looks like we have more time for Denver now.

What I find irritating is I seriously contemplated buying shares of the company around 2000 at $8 per share, but it was fluctuating so wildly on a daily basis I did not. It's at $226. Where's the facepalm emoticon when you need it.

Ha. I went back and forth about that when it was $100 a share... figured they could be worth that much. Oh well!

Good on ya, Jim Koch!

I have a hobby that involves the next step after the fermentation process, but we're not allowed to talk about on this forum.  I find this pretty amusing because homebrewing used to be illegal too, until homebrewers worked hard to have homebrewing made legal. 

This other hobby suffers from erroneous myths that are repeated by many out of ignorance of the subject.  The hobby is involved in a new craft renaissance on the commercial level.  Take my word for it.  Doing it a home will become as common as homebrewing someday, once again.  We just have to overcome all of the BS myths that surround it.

Don't tell anyone, but this hobby is actually legal in Missouri. Federally no, but on the state level, yes.

Does your current brew fall short in the cuteness department?

Um, I can say this has ever been an issue for me...

To me "resinous" is sort of the flavor part of a strong bittering character. It's sort of like licking pine sap as opposed to the aromatics of freshly crushed pine needles or juniper berries. It's sort of the same character, but resin is a bit more abrasive and clings to the tongue, while piney is more fleeting.


What about "dank"? Does this reefer to the precursor to bong water?

I see what you did there.  ;)

And when I use the term "dank" I am definitely referring to cannabis. The wet basement thing is more "musty" to me. I get that more from Brett than I do with hops.

Same here - I use "dank" to refer to the fresh buds, not the bong water. Totally different.

I use the word "resinous" occasionally on a score sheet. What I mean by that is that the hop aroma/flavor is so intense that it's almost like I'm holding the hop cone in my hand and getting all of the sticky resins from the inside of the cone into the beer. For me, this term usually accompanies other descriptors like "dank", "piney" or "citrusy".

There seems to be too may people who think they are getting out of this alive.  I really wish they would notice that we all have an expiration date and just let the tiny little threats go once in awhile.  Too much of anything is bad for you, don't sweat the small stuff.


This is my thought process when people look at me weird when I eat "unhealthy" things like pan-fried chicken and homemade macaroni and cheese. Hey, you only live so long and I ain't going without fried chicken! ...but I also don't eat it but once every two months or so.

Boulevard got ahold of an experimental hop variety that was described as "dill pickle". They had it in their tasting room for a week or so. Very strange beer. Like a blond ale with a faint pickle aroma. Not too enjoyable.

I have tried to mash breakfast cereal before back in my stupid, stupid youth.  Please don't.

It was the secret ingredient at one of our Iron Brewer comps a few years back.  I'll never forget the color of a Froot Loops mash....

Hahaha. I love homebrewer 'war stories'.

I love to cook and usually do every meal from scratch.

I also love Cardinals baseball.

But lately my time has been devoted to house hunting and wedding planning. I'm really looking forward to expanding the brewery once I get a house, but this whole house shopping thing is a bit much. It really cuts into my brewing time!

Just got finished using one of those on a batch of wine. I think you might be able to keep the cork sticking out a bit if you put a stopper of some sort on the upper part of the shaft.
