Sweet. I like their Story.

I was feeling a little smug listening to you cuss the snow...high pressure sitting on us since early January created spring like conditions for 6 weeks - grass growing, flowers blooming, birds singing/setting up territories - wacko.

I planted some lettuces and spinach in my box.  two days later we finally got some winter. Epic snowstorm of 21 inches.

Now I am skiing out the front door. ???

 I have a nice big palate to paint on now.

Excited to hear about your place - there really is nothing like having some land to work.
My garden changes every year.

Cheers to seed catalog/website dreaming. 8)

BOOM! I just had it on tap! Very fresh. Very clean. Very hoppy. Very good. I wish I didn't have to leave the bar.

Dammit Frank, you are killing me here. 
I barely finished my coffee and already I am thirsty for this.  ;D

Classy Drew. 8) Your marketing techniques must be working because the book is now out of stock!!

Very elegant.
Wow, I would have seriously over-Citrasized my attempts.  Thanks.

Denny, how about you raffle off the crown for new book funds ?

Excellent idea!!  Denny, remember a few years back when Dave@Freshops raffled off some historical Cascade crowns on ebay? ;D  Big money!!

I doubt you could get enough to buy the Bus,
but maybe some gas money?

I picked up a sixer of the Xingu based on the recommendations here...WOW I thought it was terrible! 
Had a tart cidery/champange? taste to it.  Maybe I got a really old sample?  Nasty. 
The remainders are going to be hanging out in the fridge for a while until some unsuspecting swill drinker comes over.

goshman, did you happen to try Squatters Black Forest Schwarzbier?  You should be able to source it over there...curious what you think of it.  Has won some medals.

Congratulations man. 

I have a nasty taste
from a bit of hurl in the back of my mouth.

But dang,as a fan of football,
that really was an excellent Superbowl.   8)

I tend to repeat my favorite 6 or 8 of them over and over. So, really, I don't very often do anything that software would be useful for.

I think this is where I would like to be. 8)

Computers allow us to feel like we are being so precise.
Maybe we are.
Some day when I am old I hope I can just brew with gestalt and not worry too much about it.

In the meantime..I will look into beersmith.

Interesting stuff.  I added another option that I neglected initially. ???

I brew without a computer all the time, making the following allowances:


Allowances are appropriate.   :) Thanks

I am curious if there is anyone here who does not use a computer in their homebrewing process?

I was trying to convert Denny's Noti Brown recipe in the Wiki the other day and was pulling my hair out...I think I need to update my brewing program... :-[

With honey from the White House bee hives...

IMO, only good things can come from the White House having a Head Brewer. :)

it is way too dank for the masses.

I was thinking your modification in dankness
might be a bit subtle for the masses?
  Does dank just refer to aroma?

I interrupted the dryathlon temporarily to taste the saison.  :-( But only for science's sake!

The recipe is from the book "Experimental Homebrewing". Not sure whether it's appropriate to post it here...

 :) Sounds like it might only get better for you.

Excellent form. Thanks for letting us know where to find it.

Anyone back there feel like moving to the Pacific North West? There was a record high temperature at Cannon Beach, OR a couple of days ago.

 :D Just wait a will get yours.
Unpredictability my friends...get used to the new climate norm.

seriously screwing with my ghetto lager fermentation I sit with slurry en-mass...and spring like temperatures holding me back. ::)

Sounds good.  Has it been a month already?
I was thinking hydrometer samples did not count. ;)

Any chance you want to post the recipe you used?
I am particularity interested in the OG and the hop schedule.
