I just adopted the temp BeerSmith threw at me which is 75.6C (168F) but may have to try it at higher temps.

All Grain Brewing / Re: My First Batch Sparge

I was sold on batch sparging after listening to Denny's  setup on the Brewing Network. I have never sparged any other way. I do 5 gallon batches and only have a 26 litre cooler for a tun so I have to sparge twice to get the correct preboil volume. My sparging process takes about 1 hour as I drain slowly so I can enjoy a few beers before the boil.

Hey Guido - any more info on that parking 4 block away?

Are there any commuter lots on public transportation that can be used for parking once checked in at the hotel. Have done that in DC, worked great.

You probably know as much about parking in Philly as I do.  A google link www.philadelphia.centralparking.com took me to the parking garages in town.  I clicked on the Center link to the right and found a garage at 800 Market Street (4 blocks away) for $18/day with an printable online coupon.  There's also a garage at the 1500 block of Market Street, but that must be a ritzier neighborhood because it was $25/day.  If anyone has better intel then me about the parking situation, please chime in by all means.

Thanks for the info and link.

We are probably equal in our knowledge of parking in Philly.  Was only once some years back.

I'll let you figure it all out Jeff and get back to me.  ;D

Asked an AABG member that moved to Philly for advice. Will let you know.


I'm leaving my car at home and taking the train into Philly.

It's likely I won't be able to wait till February to book a hotel cause Mrs g wants our accommodation locked in within the next week.  I' m thinking Loews is kind of central..

You could always book a couple places and then cancel when you find out.  It look forward to meeting you in Philly.


Not a bad idea  but there is a lot of hotels in that area.  Is there any major benefit to getting into the conference hotel?

Thanks for the advice though,  and a quick reply to my 1st post on the aha forum.
