I am going to have to look up what I do for my pils. Lots of late hops, but it is a 10 gallon batch.

I want to say that last year it was 10 MST. But don't quote me on it, that's just what I remember.
I remember it at Noon Eastern, 10 Mountain.

The LHBS had some early examples for evaluation, in addition to Tom's comments, the interior weld surfaces were not to the quality I was used to seeing. Maybe they have gotten better.

Welcome. I do like the local names for the beers.
Never say never on making wine. Cider is technically wine, and mead is legally considered wine by many state ABCs. Someday you will taste a cider or mead and say "I can make that".

I find the Classic Beer Styles Series awesome for getting a feel for the way beer was brewed for a particular style. Lots of insight into the history and all aspects of the classic brewing ingredients. Plus you only have to buy what styles are relavent to what you like brewing.

Again, though, you have to be careful about getting current info.  For example, Fix's VMO book is so outdated in terms of recipes and ingredients That I don't think it's worth having.
I will agree, and also say the Pils we book by Miller is outdated.

I have yet to get the "cat pee" from any beer, homebrew or commercial, including hopslam.  Maybe I'm not that sensitive to that particular odor.
I get it if it is really strong. My wife gets it when all I get is pine.

The local lager brewery was using WLP 833 and WLP 940.  They brew more with 940, and may drop the 833, as they have to spent time keeping it viable.

Brewing Classic Styles: 80 Winning Recipes Anyone Can Brew
+1  The great thing is these recipes have all won gold at the National Homebrew Competition.  There are also pointers on key thing needed to get the style right. And it includes extract recipes with all-grain conversions.
All? Those were all award winners, but 80 golds in the NHC???

I think the changes will be positive, except for as a steward, I don't relish having to deal with double the amount of bottles....imagine trying to find a beer's mate after a full 2 days of me the chills thinking about the logistics.

That and all the wasted beer....oh the horror!
You send 3 beers per second round qualifier.  That was a lot of beer out there that last night.

Stirstarter, good product, good price, great service.
The only thing i don't like is having to carefully balance my 5L flasks, but it works like a charm.
I saw that Dan has a larger model that a 5L sits nicely on.

Look into Brewing Better Beer by Gordon Strong. Not a beer recipe book, but how to approach brewing so that your finished beer is what you set out to make. Much like a a cooking instruction book with some recipes.
