Why am I hearing the Life of Brian debate in my head? Whether or not Roger has a right to Want to be pregnant, even though he hasn't a womb for the fetus to gestate...

Judean People's Front?
People's Front of Judea

I thought we were the Homebrewers Association of America.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: Sierra Nevada Celebration

Celebration is the seasonal I look forward to the most and I think this year's is solid. The helpful stocker at my grocery store put it underneath a stack of Torpedo and SNPA, so maybe it tastes better because I had to work for it  ;)

Looks nice, I'd probably use 1469. It's pretty close to a Timothy Taylor recipe I've brewed with that yeast.

I think he meant he doesn't like sculpin.  Me on the other hand see it as a top 5 favorite

I was thinking more of how Sculpin goes for $15 a six pack, vs $8 or $9 for Samuel Adams or Sierra Nevada. I love it, but I don't buy it all that often.

The Pub / Ballast Point files for IPO

Interesting to see this:

What was more interesting was their filing, which says 53% of the sales are from Sculpin and Grapefruit Sculpin. That wouldn't bode well for me as an investor.

Once all the craft newbies get finished with the newer ipa's, things are likely to come full circle back to Centennial and Cascade. They have really fallen by the wayside the last few years.

SN's Celebration will be out soon! (although I'm sure they changed the recipe this year ;D )

I don't hate any hops, but I won't use Belma or Calypso again. Calypso had a strange bitterness to it and Belma didn't seem to have any flavor.

Jeff Alworth has an interesting reaction to this piece here
http://beervana.blogspot.com/2015/10/michael-kiser-has-provocative-post-at.html

Kiser seems to assume consumers aren't sensitive to price and will gladly pay whatever a brewer charges, simply because it's that brewer. My anecdotal evidence would say that's not the case -- I'd never pay that much!

Beer advocate lists it as an American strong. I guess that fits as it's not malty enough to be an American Barleywine. It's  pretty hoppy and fairly dry considering the amount of crystal used, so that's why I thought Double Brown IPA.

I get what Paul was saying about their information on web... Not very clear.

From what I've read, the only thing on a label that has to be accurate according to TTC rules is ABV. Most of their gravity numbers make no sense.

I'm brewing something on Sunday, but I haven't figured out what yet, other than 1272 for the yeast. Maybe a Citra APA.  I love buying grain and hops in bulk.

"A profound victory for American craft", according to Tony Magee. I'd heard rumors something was in the offing for them.

I don't get much chocolate out of Carafa. Have you tried chocolate malts from an English maltser? I think Thomas Fawcett chocolate malt adds a very nice amount of chocolatey flavor. I also find their black malt doesn't have the acrid notes some US maltsters have. I use a bunch of both in my RIS, in addition to their roasted barley.

As I understand it, this is primarily used to adjust color post boil. I've heard that Fullers use it to get the colo(u)r right on London Pride

I like the challenge of RHD manuals. Just Saying that I do, others will not.

I've enjoyed it too. IME, automatics are rare in Europe so you may not be able to get one, no matter how persistent you are.

Busch is brewed with corn, but I haven't had one in years.

Sounds like you hit the Old Fashioned, one of my favorite beer bars anywhere.
