Brewing a wit tomorrow evening. It got hot early this year, so this year's first batch is going fast.

Thanks, I'll check it out.I'm brewing a mild sometime this weekend. I've got the starter going but haven't figured out the recipe yet.
I posted a recipe in the thread "Munich Mild" in the beer recipe folder. It turned out really good, refreshingly malty. I am going to do a variation on it for NHC with coffee and Cocoa Nibs.
Phil - Brew Camp is new. Maybe a year or two.I never went to the old B&G downtown, as I heard too many bad things about it. The new store in the West Loop is pretty good, but not convenient.
Brew & Grow has expanded and has more locations, but none of them are particularly convenient for me. Never had a bad experience there.
I think my favorite regionalism here in LA is the freeway notion. Ignoring the plethora of names every freeway has (and will vary based on the your mile marker) or the fact that some freeways that go N/S are marked as E/W and vice versa, my favorite is the reference scheme.That was a hard habit to shake when I moved to Chicago. Of course around here, they mostly use the name and not the number, but you get to use the: The Dan Ryan.
In the rest of the country an interstate is always I-something. Where I grew up, I was used to talking about I-4, I-95, I-75, Highway 50, State Road 441, etc.
Out here in Los Angeles - it's all "the" as in "the 5", "the 101", "the 210", "the 2", etc, etc.
Took a while to get used to, but now I can't imagine saying I-5, Highway 101, etc.
I don't know, I never heard of "sun breaks" as a weather phenomena until I moved to the NW . . .I liked learning that, the myriad of ways Harry Wappler had to describe rain and convergence effects over the Sound.
The weirdest thing I think, is all of the people in the south who use "coke" as a generic word for "soda".
