The only concern for the journal would be pro-brewer push back but it is not likely.
I can do the phone calls on behalf of the AHA if the AHA gives me permission.

This is a great idea to a geek like me, but I'm not sure that a majority of the general membership would find it valuable. When I was completing my second Masters degree a few years ago, I loved my access to various journals through the University's library. If AHA could get similar access, I would love it. If you have insight as to how libraries and allied organizations get access, your Governing Committee would like to hear it. However, the bottom line is that is limited funding available to things that might have limited appeal to the membership as a whole.
Electronic subscriptions are one of the largest expenses for university libraries. The subscriptions aren't cheap and likely would not be for AHA  especially when you consider you are buying access for 46,000 members.

I personally would vote against this if it took money from other programs I value more (AHA home brewing rights work, this forum, out reach, NHC, Homebrewcon).

To answer how universities get access: Universities and other organizations often band together in consortia that then subscribe to packages of journals from the various large publishers.

Here is a list of library consortia.

I went for the dunkel. Guess I should have tried the dopplebock

That's what I had too. It was great. The doppelbock is for the big boys. It was over 8% ABV. I decided not to drink that one then drive home.

I need to come try that one.  Maybe I will fill my new growler. :)

I tried to tell you the other day it is the best beer on the wall right now. ;)
I know you did.

Equipment and Software / ATC help with new meter

The pH calibration solutions should have a table which gives the pH at different temperatures. You should use that table when calibrating.

Here is a table I put together for my calibration. Before using it you need to make sure you use the same solutions. Mine are pH 4,7, and 10 at room temp. NIST solutions are slightly different.



PS. I notice my table has an error. It should read 4.00 at 25C.

Almost all publishers allow researchers to give copies of their published papers to other researchers. You should join researchgate. Many authors upload their papers to researchgate. If the paper you want is not already uploaded, you can request it from the author.  The author may or may not provide it.

Another way to get papers is from your local library. Your municipal library likely doesn't subscribe to the journal you want, but, they can get papers through interlibrary loan (they are likely linked up with a local university).
Happy to see your local library does this. That worked when I was a grad student but not in my local libraries.  Good for you
I haven't tried the municipal library approach. I have heard it works. I can get papers through my university library and research gate.

I am in Research gate and I am a published author. I have no control over my publications. I requested many articles this way and no answer yet. It has not been working for me.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: English yeast for beginners
« on: February 16, 2017, 09:26:24 PM »
I just finished a keg of British Golden Ale made with WLP041 Pacific Ale which is actually recommended for British ales and is said to be more fruity than WLP002. The esters are really apparent in the Golden Ale since their is not much else to compete flavor wise. I think the esters have bubblegum and chewy orange candy flavors.  Sounds weird but I really like that beer. I also think the beer had a much fuller mouth feel that the same beer with US05 would have.

The beer had a medium dose of Amarillo (0.6 oz in 3 gallon batch) added in the last 5 minutes of the boil. That affects the favor, too.

PS. I like the MJ Burton Ale yeast also.

Crowlers have to last longer, but once you open it you are committed.
That was the key for me. I want to be able to close the container when putting it back in the fridge. In practice, though, if you are drinking the whole thing in one setting not closing is not a big deal. Also, I generally buy a growler to drink that day or the next tops.

That bitter looks good to me. A good water profile and mash pH help clarity also.

Tommy and BrewBama - I envy you guys! There's a chance I might be headed through Bama this summer to show my son the campus in Tuscaloosa. A detour would be in order. Love to see Yellowhammer and have a beer or three with you guys (and that Keith guy ;D ). I'll let ya know.
If you are coming from Indiana to UofA-Tuscaloosa you will be coming down IH-65. Huntsville is about 25 miles down IH-565 from IH-65 which is hardly out of the way.

Plus, if your son wants to study a STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) field please stop by UAH (University of Alabama Huntsville). I will give you a tour. We don't have football, but, we have better science and engineering. I lead the cybersecurity programs.


Awesome info. He's an engineering student to be who could care less about football (though his Dad is a fan). If he can get into Purdue on a full ride, he likely would go there. But they give out few full rides - awesome engineering program obviously. But Alabama's is obviously no slouch. He's only a freshman but fact finding is a good thing as well as gauging his happiness with a given place. His grades are stellar, so there shouldn't be an issue there. We may very well take you up on that.Thanks for the info!
Bama and Purdue are great schools. Engineering at Bama is kind of emerging. I know professors at both Purdue and Bama and those faculty I know are good at both schools. But obviously Purdue ranks really high.

UAH is a nice school because of where we are (across the street from Redstone Arsenal). Redstone is home to lots of US Army R&D (Missiles, Unmanned aircraft, unmanned vehicles, software engineering for many DOD weapon systems), NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center, and many more commands and agencies ...   Wehner Von Braun and his team of German scientists and engineers started the USA's rocket programs here.
All that puts UAH in a technology zone rivaled only by a few places in the USA (Silicon Valley, Research Triangle Park in North Carolina, Seattle). At UAH we work closely with the local agencies and Army commands and therefore our students get to do so also.

That pizza is great.

Gotta admit the Rebellion is great too, but, I usually look for what is new on the menu. Plus, Rebellion reminds me of a bad decision my ancestors made (civil war).

I have 2 64 oz. growlers but I rarely fill them because they are too big unless I have company.

I have been buying 32 oz. crowlers (cans filled at the brewery). But, recently the bartender suggested that I should buy a 32 oz. growler since they are $4 and the crowlers cost $1 and are not reusable.

So, I am the very proud owner of  this new 32 oz. growler. I am a bit surprised it was only $4.
