This will be my first NHC.  Will most people be bringing homebrew, or just those that drive in?  I've flown with wine bottles and both times there were broken bottles  >:( .  So I've been thinking I wouldn't be bringing any.  Is there something I am missing?

Carrying a paper bag full of 10.5 Lbs. of Pilsner malt to the mill.  I didn't make it half way before it ripped.  No I didn't make a Garage Floor beer.  I bought more.

Does anyone believe that we will eventually reach a point where there will be specialized certification within the beer categories?

I think it would be a good idea.  We'd have more judges because it would be far easier to be excellent at 1-3 styles.  The hard part would be at the level of managing judges & competitions - but that's what we have computers for right?

I vote yes.

The only thing I'd add is oil is never a good thing in beer.  Ok except hop oils.

As for NHC2016, thanks anyways...I guess I really on need to wait a few more weeks to find out for sure.

a reasonable question might be, will we know '16 location, at '15 NHC?

I am hereby requesting Yakima.

Welcome Fish, and thanks for your service. 

I was in Fairbanks recently.  I really enjoyed it... but it was during the peak of Summer.  I found two breweries: Silver Gulch which has been there for some time and has GREAT food, and Hoodoo Brewing Co. which is new.  I liked them both.  Hoodoo is in town while Silver Gulch is about 20 minutes out as I recall.  Anyway, I hope you enjoy your time in the Great North!

What an awesome position.  And you're the perfect guy for it!  As I recall you were functioning informally in that position last Summer when my wife and I made it down to Eugene.  :)

Sounds like the best use of black IPA that I've heard yet.

Oooh snap!

I accompanied a friend brew on his once.  Seemed to work OK.  The biggest issues for me was the limited grain capacity and it took a long time to get to boil.  Those are minor issues; I'm sure you will like it.  As to BeerSmith, use a BIAB profile, as that is essentially what you will be doing.

My guess is he got it from this guy.

Your guess is correct!

I upload from my iPhone to photobucket without having to connect my phone to my computer.  Maybe I'm misunderstanding your issue.

What does 'properly set' mean?  I just cranked the hex key till it would turn anymore.

Very nice!  Is that direct drive?  If so, look out for rocks!

Yeah, didn't think about that.  *fingers crossed*
