While I admire the homeowner's chutzpah  and I'm sure many of us would like to do that, it seems incredibly stupid.  What if the guy was armed?

Events / Re: NHC 2013 Entry Problems - Possible Solutions?
« on: July 04, 2013, 09:41:52 AM »
I think this is a good idea.  Can we count on it?

I hope so.  I'll see if I can get comments from Jake.

Since the need for a nap interfered with my going to the members meeting (getting old), is there a summary posted for members not in the room?

Not as far as I know, Jeff.  I'd like to see one, too, since I also wasn't there.  Let's see what Jake has to say.  Maybe he can cover both the GC and members meetings.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Hot Side Aeration
« on: July 03, 2013, 08:18:50 AM »
I am careful about not aireating the mash, but is there a concern with HSA while lautering/sparging? I usually runoff into my BK that hangs on the edge of the kettle simply with a hose. sounds like someone taking a leak in my kettle.

Based on my experience, I'd say no.  The way I batch sparge would make me a primary candidate for problems, but I've never had any.

Jeff, to your question about conference beers...

the way it worked when "I" did one for Seattle is like this....grains were donated by Great Western and hops by Hop Union.  Wyeast offered to donate yeast, but John Maier just went with Pacman he had.  We got a mobile bottler to donate bottling facilities and Rogue donated the bottles themselves.  Another company donated the screening on the bottles.  My job was to come up with a recipe and find someone to brew it.  Although I was open to collaborating with John on a recipe, he was up for just using my standard Rye IPA recipe.  Sp, there are a lot of donations involved and I was going around in circles trying to get ducks in a row.  Fortunately Mike Higgins at Rogue was a huge help in getting donations and getting everything organized.  Anything else I can tell you?

Well it didn't get that high. But the foam "Creson?" wen't up and down in about four hours, not two to three days, and now i'm seeing no signs of active fermentation.

I just realized that i spent about 15 minutes swirling the carboy after pitching, and that is a new practice for me. Could all this just be me experiencing how the yeast works with well aerated wort?

Maybe, but it's more likely due to a high fermentation temp.

8215
Unless the temp got over 115 F, you didn't kill the yeast.

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: NHC Finals Scorecards

So is it a possibility we will transition to using these check sheets in regular comps in the future?

That's up to the organizer of the comp.  Personally, I'm not sure that's a good idea for most comps.  But as long as it didn't discourage judges from writing comments, also, they might be OK.

Beer Recipes / Re: 90 miunte bittering charge harshness
« on: July 02, 2013, 11:14:02 AM »
I wonder if the extra 30 mins bring out more of the coarseness, to the point of being this unpleasant.

Not that I've ever noticed.  Also, boiling for 90 min. increases the utilization by VERY little.

What I like about the checklist is that it provides a common vocabulary for all the judges, so it eliminates the vagaries of terminology.  I once read a scoresheet where the judge described a beer as "tanky".  WTF does that mean?  The checkboxes eliminate that, or at least cut it down since the judge would have to write that kind of comment separately.

So, what about your cleaning process?  You can't sanitize something that isn't clean.
