They are having a beer shortage at the World Cup. My goodness, I didn't think this was possible.

I can't wait to hear the brew day disasters.

I will be doing a midwest version of jambalaya. It will have chicken, kielbasa, pork, corn, roasted peppers, red onions and roasted brussels sprouts and green beans.

Events / Re: Shipping to NHC Finals

I have two beers that I am shipping to the NHC finals in Portland. I have decided on doing two-day shipping by UPS. I have three questions. Will this involve an airplane? If so, is the cabin pressurized? Any other thoughts or recommendations I should consider?
Thank you for your assistance!

P.S. I hate that I can't tell them it's home brew for a competition. It would be much better if I can go to UPS directly for their assistance.

Two day shipping guarantees an airplane, driving from Cedar Falls to Portland would take quite a bit.  Cargo planes are pressurized like commercial planes.

I'm a proud UNI Panther

Awesome!Love the Panthers. Thanks for the information.

The Pub / Re: I finally did it: facebook
« on: May 29, 2018, 07:16:27 PM »
I am on Facebook because our club has a group page which I maintain. I also like to follow what the other clubs and home brewers in our area are doing. I also like to post what and when I am brewing. I don't get emotionally invested in things out of my control (i.e. politics). It's a good way to be frustrated and disappointed.

It's hard for me not to be snarky at this point. (Not at you, Wilbur for posting).

Looks like there are plenty of happy yeast!

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: New Brewer - why do you homebrew
« on: May 07, 2018, 12:42:06 PM »
I brewed my first beer in 1988 because all there was available was Bud, Miller, etc. I wanted more variety. I still do it because I enjoy the hobby and interacting with other Club members. I also enjoy the festivals we do.

Both Toppling Goliath and Singlespeed are excellent. There is also Second State (Cedar Falls) is also good. Lark Brewing (Waterloo) has very good beer but no food. Uncle Harry's Five and Dime Tavern is not a brewery. But, it has an excellent selection of commercial beers.
Hope this helps.

Our LHBS just closed. They weren't making much money and they have families to support. I completely understand. The closest shop to us now is about an hour drive away. Plus, there is ordering on line.
