I had to dump 6-8 years of playboy when I moved back in 2011. Subscriber the whole time, every issue. There was a concern about the teen and pre-teen boys in the house finding them. They were all from the early to mid 90's so nothing too special, really don't know why I still had them. As for brewing, I have Zymurgy, BYO, and CB&brewing every issue for the last 3.5 years. Half unread, some still in mailing plastic, don't know if I'll ever get to them. Better info here and not enough time for here and them. Likely not renewing except for Zymurgy

I will say one advantage to having pitchers bat is they can get plunked should they have thrown at a player previously.

I think baseball needs to stick with 162 games, it's what sets it apart from other sports. If anything, the parity of recent years kinda shows that it can take that many games to sort out who's best.

Then again, if I were in charge I'd can divisions and playoffs and return to the old pennant system. 162 games to sort out who's number 1 in both leagues, then a 7-game series for it all.

But that's something that would make less money, so they'll never do it.

I just don't want baseball to turn into the NFL.
I like the canning of divisions and playoffs if we can't(and I know they won't) reduce the season. Also correct that they'll never do it

As in the football reference, sports positions have all become more specialized and position specific. Nobody really wants the jack of trades players when they can have a superstar at every position($267M payroll, wtf?) If I was an owner, I would do everything I could to protect my superstar $20M pitcher in what ever way possible.
This is simply my opinion, and I don't follow a lot of baseball, unless the Tribe is doing well, but I think it makes good fiscal policy to protect your investment. I don't want another pitcher throwing a baseball up to 100 mph at a guy I'm paying over $10M a year.
Then again, I'm the guy who thinks it's ludicrous to need 162 games plus playoffs and a championship to figure out who the best team is.
Is you want purity, look at other sporting leagues around the world: 20 teams in a league. You play every team once at home and once on the road. At the end, whoever has the best record, is the league champ. Nothing else needed. No glorified, overblown spectacle of extended playoffs, including teams that could not even win their division, and a final game/series to then figure out who has held up the best throughout the season.
No popular thoughts here I know, just my $.02 when I hear about purity and "real" baseball and the like. Let the bashing begin

I switched from dextrose (expensive at the LHBS) to table salt and have not noticed any difference. Very happy with the change

Beer Travel / Kingfisher
« on: October 10, 2016, 07:19:27 PM »
So I am in Gunnison,Co for the week. We decided to get takeout from the Sherpa Cafe(food smells wonderful as we finish our drinks at the bar.). I order a Kingfisher, after reading here that it's from SE Asia and it was their feature. The beer was tasty, but take a closer look at the label for brewing and bottling notes: Saratoga Springs,NY for both, not listed as the importer. Definitely caught me by surprise.

Anyone else ever realize that they have started brewing here in the States?

I gotta believe the Tribe can't lose 3 WS appearances in a row(their last 3 that is) so they must be due if they can get there

Also, I don't know what your timeline is but if there is a Sox home playoff game happening (starting next week and all through World Series  8))check out the area around the ballpark for the atmosphere. Get to one of the spots around Fenway such as Boston Beerworks or
Cask & Flagon way early to get a spot near the taps (to be able to get bartenders attention) and soak in Red Sox Nation.
Pete, really hope you're wrong here, as I would love to see my Tribe continue on to the World Series. ;D

Was that quart low at end of boil, or at end of chilling/into fermenter. Cooling will condense and you will lose a little volume there as well, think Beersmith estimates at 4%.
