Somebody send Drew a PM about the meetup.  Since I'm not gonna be there, the ball's in his court.

Damn, wish I could see how you do that!   :o

Thanks, all.

Know what you mean, Jeff.  My father in law died Memorial Day.  My mom was the last parent between us.

A friend once made a "beetweizen".  You couldn't really tell there were beets in it.

I do what Denny says.

This should be on a T-shirt.  Might be as popular as the "Eddie Would Go" shirts in Hawaii! ;D

Should include the ukulele picture on the shirt

I'd buy one!

Well, crap....sometimes life interferes with beer.  My mom passed away this morning so I'll be spending the week in the beer wasteland of Phoenix.  Wish I could be there with you all, but that's the way things go.

AFAIK, all presentations will be available for AHA members a few weeks after the conference.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Best igloo cooler for all grain brewing

A 70 qt. Coleman Extreme is the choice of a lot of people.

Thais is what you're looking for.

Neither that, nor any other calculator I've used, has been able to accurately tell me how much to heat the water.  I think it's becasue coolers resist temp changes.

I heard good things about Williamette? I read an article a week or so ago that recommended it for APA/IPA

Despite the fact that I live in the Willamette valley near the Willamette river, you'll never find Willamette hops in my IPA!  They have an earthiness I don't care for.

I'll be there...I'm introducing you!

I haven't had that one, but Keith's other beers that I've tried have been outstanding.  I'm not surprised to hear how good this one is.

Not unless you heat them during the mash or insulate them.

No brewing today.  Kegged 2 batches yesterday and have one more in the fermenter.

After 440 batch sparged brews, I've reached the conclusion that it just doesn't matter all that much.  I sparge with water anywhere from 180-200 F and that gets my grain bed into the upper 160s.  That's good enough.  If it's lower than that, it doesn't matter.  If it's a bit higher than that, it doesn't matter as long as your pH is OK.
