Wow, I didn't even know you existed and had that power, so you must be someone important. Do you have a boss who can take the whole forum down? ;)

Yes he does.  So don't piss him off otherwise he'll shutdown the forum and bring TechTalk back  :o

I did read the first post that came through and I think Matt made the right decision.

Yes, we do have a boss that can bring the whole forum down.

He is the leader and most powerful of the turtle-like Koopa race; whose ultimate goal is to kidnap and marry Princess Peach, defeat Mario, and conquer the fictional Mushroom Kingdom.

Hi all -

I took the thread down.

To my knowledge, there aren't many threads that have been removed from the AHA forum before. Those who saw how baseless and harassing some of the comments were will no doubt agree that it had no place here.

To quell anyone's curiosity - a thread was started about revealing personal information without the consent of the individual. The person who began the thread was an active member here and will be missed. He was not banned. According to his posts, he voluntarily suspended his account.

The individual who WAS banned joined this forum simply as a means to make baseless claims against the aforementioned member. His one and only post went so far as to reveal this person's home address, what model & color car he drives, as well as information about his family - along with several derogatory remarks. The post was quickly removed by the admins. After he was banned, he then called the AHA office to make further derogatory remarks about this individual.

I made the decision to pull the entire thread. I hope that I will not have to do that again, and I hope this clears up the curiosity.

This forum is a place for learning and sharing information about great beer, and the hobby we all love. The homebrewing community is renowned for our sense of camaraderie. Let's all do our best to keep it that way.

Hi all -

The Big Brew recipes this year are taken directly from Gordon Strong's upcoming Modern Homebrew Recipes book. We have heard your concerns on the complicated grain bill, though. If you are looking for a simpler barleywine recipe to brew on May 2, feel free to search the website for past Big Brew recipes!

The Pub / Re: Craft beer tap list app
« on: March 25, 2015, 08:20:01 AM »
Some folks in Richmond, VA came up with a similar app/website called 'Trinkin' a few years ago (or maybe a few months ago... not sure). It's awesome. They have expanded to other cities in VA, too:

Yeast and Fermentation / Starter for Sours
« on: August 14, 2014, 10:30:50 AM »
I am not sure where I heard it, or read it - but I am under the impression that making a starter for a sour beer is not beneficial. I plan to pitch Roselare blend in primary for a Flanders Red. My understanding is that Wyeast has created the Roselare blend with specific ratios of Sach:Lacto:Pedio:Brett for the perfect flavor profile. If you make a starter, then the Sach yeast will reproduce much more quickly than the bugs, and knock off that ratio, therefore messing up the flavor profile that Wyeast created.

Is this correct? Or have I been under the wrong impression about creating a starter with the Roselare blend?

Gracias!
-Matt Bolling
