This guy's blog is a good starting point for events

I read it so I can point and laugh  ;D I lived there for over 20 years and I still marvel at how restrictive the beer laws are.

The Desert Edge is an old haunt of mine. They do some nice beers and it's not as crowded as Squatters. You could get there pretty easily on the light rail.

I used to hang out a lot at Juniors, but that was when it was in its old dive location. No idea what it's like now, but it's right downtown. It was one of the first places in town to get Guinness on tap, which wasn't until 1995, or so.

that's it.  Its Steve by the way, not Dave.

And you're right - Simpsons Medium English Crystal is important - I made it once with Briess C-60L and it lacked that sumpin-sumpin in the malt flavor.
That's what I get for posting before the proper amount of coffee has been  imbibed.

It looks like they've tried again since that was posted, but I haven't listened to the show. Maybe while I'm brewing today

Yes, it's Larson, thank you. How is the other recipe different? Do you have a link to it?
Here's the CYBI recipe and another based on an interview with SN's brewmaster, Dave Dresler
http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f12/jamil-show-tastys-sn-celebration-clone-176201/

I brewed something similar  to the second recipe and got pretty close. The real key that isn't mentioned there is that they use English crystal malt, which has a much different character than domestic crystal. I used Simpsons medium.
Here's a link to the interview:

Picked up a six of this at my local market this evening. I think they changed the recipe ;D

I love this beer and look forward to its release every year. It's such a great balance of malt and hops. I'm buying a couple of 12s as soon as I see them this year. It disappeared pretty fast in my neck of the woods last year. My market still has some 12s of Tumbler to get rid of, unfortunately.

I'm brewing an IPA tomorrow and a bitter on Friday. I picked up some Vienna malt for the IPA today from a shop I didn't know about prior to the new AHA LHBS directory being posted.

I searched my full name and found a few tidbits of info- nothing too concerning. But did a search on my "alias" and found this: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Euge ::)
You added #2, right  ;D

I like to keep my professional stuff and my hobbies separate, so I have multiple personas on the web. There's one forum I frequent that I wouldn't linked back to me, so it's its own thing completely.

This one is great too . . .

I went through all of them, some of them really had me crying.
I don't think it's the animal being a d!ck there. Probably an older brother ;D

What Joe said about USB turntables. The ones I've looked at all came with Audacity. The pain for me is editing the metadata, not the sound input.

416
This is great, I found a shop fairly close by that I didn't know existed. Good thing I get paid next week ;D

Vinyl to MP3 is a PITA. I haven't found a way to automate it. I use Audacity to record from the line-in jack, but I have to add all the metadata myself. It's a pretty powerful editor, though. My wife found an old cassette of her grandmother playing piano that I ripped. It was pretty noisy, but Audacity smoothed it out really well.

I like Media Player better than iTunes for CDs. iTunes has crappy metadata, IMHO.

I have most of next week off. I'm making a big starter for a barleywine this weekend. I think. I may brew a bitter as well or instead of. Decisions, decisions.

I like Celebration. :)

Shouldn't you withhold comment until you taste the new recipe  :D

Ain't no Citra.  Can't believe they'd be out of it already...I have 4oz of it that I got from NB last week.  I'll try doing a single hop APA with it to check them out.
Three Floyds Zombie Dust is all Citra and it's a great beer. Hard to come by outside of the brewery, though.
