Congrats, Tom!

Everything in 3 months?!  Were they offering an advance large enough for you to quit your job and do nothing else, then have 6 or 9 months to find a new job?  I'm guessing not . . . :-\

The advance they were offering was about 1/3 of my already meager yearly salary.  IOW, about a month's worth of what a normal person makes!

I used to name every one, but now that I'm near 400 batches I find I'm just not clever enough to come up with names for all of them.  I have quite a few named after pets, like "Nick Danger Porter" .  FWIW, most people don't know the real names of 2 of my most popular recipes.  The Rye IPA is officially "Wry Smile" and the BVIP is "Rudolph's Foggy Night".

Yea, I am loving the fact that Denny is using '07 Columbus :o

That's just leftover in Promash.  They were actually 2010 Columbus.

I am seriously thinking of starting a mug club. Ten bucks scores you a personal mug. You're welocome to come over and drink free beer from your mug, anytime, all you can drink, at 3$, maybe 5$ a session. I thinks that's fair. three bucks for alll the free beer you can drink, and it's not Bud. You figure one poker night with three dudes here, and that keg is paid for. Next weekend, a propane refill, next weekend, a c02 exchange. Some week I might feel generous, and the rounds are on me. Sometime I might be extra kind and let them fill a growler. But, at least it will put thee brakes on this deal.

Weaz, that could get ya in serious legal trouble.  I'd think twice about it.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Finally got my water figured out!!

Next time try it without the 5.2.  You should be able to be right on without it and not using might improve the flavor of your beer.

Good suggestions.  I wanted to have graphics and such, but the deadline for that passed before I could do it.  I thought I would be able to have those ready while the book was being reviewed and edited, but nope, they needed to be submitted along with everything else.  Something good to know for the next book...

That's what pretty much killed the book deal I was offered a while back.  They wanted the entire book, including photos and graphics, in less than 3 months.  Looking forward to another one from you with all the stuff you know you need in it!

Please let us know when this particular show airs, I would like to see it! Good luck, and have fun!

If I know, I'll post.  But there's no guarantee I'll be on it.

I don't know how many of you will remember, but back in the 70s there was a band called Free Beer.  It was great to see posters advertising them playing at bars.

When my wife got it, she installed a fold down rear seat bed so she could go camping.

Yeah.  "Camping." Gotcha.   ;)

I knew some sick minded person would think that.  Should have guessed it would be you!  ;)

That's awesome.  Man, I wish I was crafty like that...I'm so worthless when it comes to build your own kinda stuff.

You and me both, bud!  99% of the time I'd rather buy it than abuse my meager skills by building something.

I just brewed my 399th batch...

Nice, Denny!  Doing something special for 400?

I started a Belgian quadrupel thread in the recipe section.  When I decide what I'm gonna post I'll post the final there.  I have some candi syrup samples coming and I'm waiting to see what they send me before I finalize anything.

Something big and Belgian.
Nice!  I'd love to trade Belgian recipes with you, Denny!

To my way of thinking, it's not even the cost of ingredients that would tick me off.  That's not that big a deal.  It's the time I have to find to brew it that's really invaluable.  I kinda like Gordon's idea of telling them if they mow your lawn, you'll have time to brew.

Wish I lived closer denny I would love to take that bus off your hands. I've owned a ton of bugs but never a bus, always wanted one. My wife and I stop and look at everyone we see. Got any picts?

This is all I've got...you can kinda see the curtains in the back window.  When my wife got it, she installed a fold down rear seat bed so she could go camping.
