Nope, there isn't one.  Kind of a bummer.
It is Michigan after all.  ::)

Well, it's certainly not Oregon!

Or other parts of the country that have a public transportation system. Would be nice to have some in MI.

I am going to plant some Barley this week just for grins. If it grows I will try and malt it. Inspired by Jonathan Fuller. I have packages picked up from the Briess stand over the years, so why not?

I used to also like Four Peaks in Tempe, but I don't get out that way much these days.

I've seen around 20 Indy 500s, but didn't go today. It's a shame - the weather was perfect.
Yes it was perfect weather.

On our way to the Speedway, where I will see my 35th Indy 500.

Turn left!
A two time winner described the race as the green flag, 800 left tuns, followed by the checkered flag.

I know of a few breweries that capture their co2. No idea how widespread it is.
It is very widespread in Germany, as the recovered CO2 can be used for carbonation under the Reinheitsgebot.

Where do you think breweries like Sierra Nevada sourced the equipment from?

Here's the CO2 recovery and pump thing.
That's interesting. The coolest thing I learned on my recent tour of the Sierra Nevada brewery is that they capture their co2 from fermentation, so they went from 4 trucks a week of co2 to 4 trucks a year. It's a fascinating idea and I wish us homebrewers could have something like that so we could limit the amount of co2 we have to buy. I think it'd be a bit pricey and maybe too complicated for me.

At beer camp they pointed out that the esters and alcohol has to be removed to get the purity of CO2 they need ( we know that air locks don't just smell like CO2).

Spend some time in de Garre if you can find it. The house at Tripple is fantastic.

An iconic place

So many places in Brugge, so little time! Been there about 7 times!

All Grain Brewing / Re: Mineral adjustment after fermentation

Try it on a glass of beer. then you can decide. It is easy to overdo it, so try very small amounts at a time. You can also adjust pH if you want with acid (down) or baking soda or picking lime (up).
