Mark - it was very nice meeting you. And thanks for passing along your yeast knowledge. Seriously - write a book someday. I will buy it!

I got such a kick out of meeting everyone. Except for Marshall, Denny and Drew - nobody looked like I expected! Hopefully - the beginning of some long standing friendships.
So you're saying the rest were handsome athletic and well behaved?

I think a Viking river cruise for two of us, with airfare, and maybe a couple t shirts would be a $10k week. That's not happening.

How about the guy? Have any of you gone with him? Seems speedy too but at least he hauls you to breweries every day.

Ya they are about $250 per day per person not counting airfare. Pipe dream

I wish I could have been there to see my Club win COTY! How awesome is that, huh?

Beer Travel / River Cruising

I'm daydreaming of a trip. Has anyong done a Viking River Cruise? What im looking for is sight seeing with lots of classic beer readily available. Viking seems to talk a lot about wine with little mention of beer. I sure like the idea of just stepping off the boat, seeing what I need to see and sampling some beer, then get back on the boat. Next stop...

If you have experience with Belgium/Germany beer trips, and could only go once and could only go for 7-10 days, what would you suggest? Keep in mind that sights are probably just as important as the beer, breweries aren't necessary though one or two would be awesome, and I'd pick history over shopping any day.

Must be because for it to go up 5 points you'd have to had about a half pound of sugar if its a 5 gallon batch.

Yup, if your going to sheridan then west thats the road. You'll be fine and its beautiful. If you see a sign saying 10% 10 miles, take it seriously.

If its bubbling most likely its not done so the gravity sample would be kind of a waste. I'd wait till it stops bubbling at least. Also, a lot of brewing recipes have days/weeks scheduled.  Ignore them, they are ballpark only, and probably only represent what the recipe writer usually sees. Yeast cant read calendars and rarely follow the same schedule every time. I look for lack of airlock activity, then lack of activity in the fermenter. If theres no bubbles and it looks like the yeast are settling out of solution, its getting towards done.

So am I. Your first hydrometer said 1.012 and now it says 1.017?

Do you have an airlock on it? If so is it still bubbling at all? Normally if theres no bubbling at all, and it looks to be clearing up, then it might be done and it makes sense to measure gravity.
