It was an outstanding conference this year, and it was great seeing old friends and meeting new ones.  I'm still in the Seattle area visiting family.  Got a 6 Hour drive to home tomorrow.

Alton Brown brewed an extract batch on Good Eats.  Don't know if that counts.

Unless he's kept brewing and has done more than one batch for TV, I don't think I could call him a homebrewer.  I'd call him a personality who demonstrated how to brew beer on  TV.

They'll be posted sometime after they're announced at tomnight's banquet.  Late tonight or tomorrow.

I bought one of these thermometers to give it a try.  They claim:
"Each thermometer is tested and calibrated in our exclusive triple accredited/registered ISO/IEC 17025:2005, A2LA accredited laboratory against equipment whose calibration is traceable to NIST"

That looks like the one I use.

For some reason last night I couldn't log in on my password; it kept telling me that the password was wrong.  I had to reset the password to log back in.  Were there account changes that I missed?  Is there an expiration on passwords?

Nope and nope, but beyond that I have no idea what happened.

Session IPA = Pale Ale?

Yep, AFAIAC.  Or "Extra Hoppy Pale Ale".

As far as I can tell, nobody's brewed anything with it, at least commercially.

I try to use the same bill, same ratio and amount of water to gain consistency. Then you can extrapolate what will happen if you increase/reduce the amounts.

This sounds like a good approach. The problem is brewing the same grain bill more than once  ;D

IMO, that's one of the keys to learning to be a great brewer.

When I opened this thread, I thought it was going to be about Dan Listerman's latest beer.

You and me both, Chumley! 

I'll start posting links to NHC pics and videos tomorrow.

Chrispy told me he tried every beer at club night a couple years ago, but he had a glass the size of a thimble.

I can't verify that he tried every beer, but I remember the glass!  I just use my normal conference glass, but I don't start until late in the day and I only take a small taste of the beer.  I have decided that dying at the conference would kinda put a damper on things!

I think that in a lot of commercial breweries it's common to see whirlpool additions, where the hops steep for a period of time in the 180-200F temp range.  You're starting to see more homebrewers doing that also.  I think the "add at flameout and bang on the chiller" method is still likely the most prevalent, though.  I also see a trend where dry hopping either replaces or is used in conjunction with late additions.  It's the opinion of a lot of people (myself included) that it's a more useful method.

Taps on your fridge wouldn't require any additional room.  Cheap it ain't though.

No, but a place to put the CO2 bottle does.  Believe me, it's not like I haven't thought about it!
