Yes, Denny. The AHA could solicite the major broadcast news channels local to those areas when and where legislation in favor of homebrewing or brewing period is passed with the AHA mentioned as a supporting party in the decision. Awareness is or should be a key item for the AHA. Even if legislation is defeated, the Issue as well as the AHA should receive some recognition of awareness so people understand any given battle lost does not mean the loss was permanent.
What is the possibility of the AHA trying to gain more public awareness or recognition? Where I live, a person may as well be speaking a foreign language when they ask if they've heard of the AHA. When legislation is passed, by and large, it goes un-noticed by the public... as well as the AHA. Jmo... I think the AHA should put the association a little more forward, especially when they have helped accomplish something for homebrewers.
Its good to know someone has my back.... do they? I'm sure many wonder "what if". Is it asking too much? I think it would help the AHA grow. Jmo...
Both audio and video captures of presentations are ideas that have been discussed and I'm willing to bet will be implemented at some point. Powerpoints are available going back a few years. Text might be difficult. I know I don't have prepared text for my presentations and I don't think many of the presenters do.How can you have text for your presentations, Denny? When I was in Cincinnati, you spent a large part of the time answering questions.
Having said that, a youTube Channel might be a good idea. The problem, of course, is the expense of recording and editing the sessions.
Those look really cool.
What are the rules. Only water and sand, or do they add something to make it more stable?
I'm in agreement with your hypothesis, Kai. And I won't be testing a coarse grist since that would require me to readjust my mill. I'm not gonna mess with that.
No, I was not really soliciting volunteers.
I usually stir once after adding the sparge water. I believe additional stirring wouldn't render any significant amount of additional sugar assuming one has achieved starch conversion during the mash.
I want you all to relax this week and have a cold one or three.
