Nothing to really add except that I'm a fan of this beer as well. Very tasty!  :)

Best wishes to all of my homebrewing brethren dealing with the wild fires in CO. Hang in there!  ;)

Forgive my geographical ignorance, but aren't there already several local homebrew clubs (BOSS, Brewers Syndicate, Silverado, UKG) in that area? However, I can certainly understand doing your own thing. Carry on & good luck!  ;)

If you do make it to the Moonlight Meadery, be sure to ask Michael for a sample of his Coffee In Bed. Curt, Susan & I judged the homebrewed version back in June during the AHA NHC (2nd Round). It was fan-freakin'-tastic!  8)

Nice job with the collars & sleeves guys! You guys are obviously more motivated than myself, as I just use the ever faithful $1.29¢ picnic tap. Truly lame, I know.  :-[ 

Ingredients / Re: SRM of Brewers Licorice

I'm not a licorice fan either, but when I do use it (usually in a Baltic Porter)... I prefer to use licorice root vs. brewer's licorice which adds a compelling sweetness to the finished beer and absolutely no color. If in doubt, don't use any of it!  ;) 

I'm agree with Gordon on finding your own path to coffee beer enlightenment. I can honestly recommend against "greenbeaning" unless you enjoy putrid beer.  :P 

All Grain Brewing / Re: Fire!

In my best Beavis voice, "Huh, huh. FIRE! FIRE!"  :D
My friend is using a similar pair that are hard plumbed. They work great, but they constantly need minor adjustments and keep them out of the elements when not in use.  ;)

All Grain Brewing / Re: rice hull percentage

I typically use a "couple" of handfuls when using wheat or rye malt in excess of 50%. Approx. < 2-3%?  :-\

Here's a link to a friend's blog about one of the gluten free beers she's been brewing. I've tasted it and it's surprising drinkable for using no barley. Good luck!  ;)

+1 on using Barkeeper's Friend to get the soot off. I leave a thin layer of Dawn on the bottom of ea. of my kettles. I've used one for 222 batches & it looks brand new!  ;)

I recently made an O-fest using Ancho chiles which turned out really nice. I also make a serrano cream ale that borders the line of being offensive, but to each his/her own!   8)

Brewery is just outside of downtown Huntsville which is ~20 minutes from the airport. I would recommend anyone who is really interested in coming by to wait until we are up and running a few months. We are starting out with only two beers (a Belgian White and an IPA) to go on draft but plan to ramp that up to 4 within 6 months and by then I plan to have all sorts of "projects" going on as well.

Good luck Major!  My dad lives in Decatur, so I'll have to come by for a "brewery tour" next time I'm visiting. The boys from Olde Towne showed me around their new facilty earlier this summer. I hope to find some of your Kolsch on tap in AL someday.  8)

Yep. Totally fine, so long as you're definitely going. Where you might have a problem is not having any tix on hand (to sell or trade) in case of an emergency. Just sayin'!   :-\
