A getting stopped with a new didgerido from guitar center in the car is a sure way to get searched, I would think. Unless you are in Washington or Colorado
Yes, a didgeridoo that is in plain sight surely constitutes reasonable suspicion to conduct a vehicle search. If the search turns up Frisbee golf discs they don't even have to find the pot to get a conviction.

That sounds exactly like what I have.  Snot consistency, awesome flavor.  I've had two of my buddies that are quad aficionados and they both loved it.  The issue I saw pouring it out of the bottle was that is was thick and poured with no head initially then the head just kind of appeared.  Jeffy's description sounds exactly like what I have.  I'm gonna let her ride.  Although I will monitor the bottles to be on the safe side.  My capper puts a round indentation on the top.  If that goes away, it's time for the fridge.

I was going to dump it, but I think I'll wait and see what happens.  It does have a slight tang to it.  Maybe add some other bugs as well.  Nothing to loose at this point.  Thanks for the input guys.

It actually turned to syrup, thick, like corn syrup.  It's very strange.

I brewed a quad a few months ago.  Had it on tap for a month or so, bottled about a twelve pack and then took the keg out of the serving fridge.  It has now turned into a syrupy mess in the bottles and in the keg as well at cellar temps.  I have no idea what happened or what could even have caused this phenomenon.  This is the same quad recipe I have used for years and has won multiple blue ribbons.  The only difference is the yeast (WLP530 instead of 500).  Is there any type of infection that could cause this?  I'm going to have to dump it at this point, but don't want to this issue to crop up again.

Enjoy, Jim!  I would love a dobro, but I already have many instruments that I don't pay enough attention to.

I know that disease. For some reason, it doesn't stop me from acquiring more.

When I go to acquire a new instrument, I often get "you don't even play the ones you have".  And at hundreds or thousands of dollars per investment, I find it increasingly difficult to justify.

Homebrew Clubs / Re: Selecting beers to serve at events...

IF I were in a club and they were bringing beer to NHC I would vote for the taste panel idea. Two or three good judges, blind taste and score. If we were bringing X amount of kegs, then the top X beers go on the road but nothing under a 35. For local stuff you could relax the requirements, and for club meetings anything goes. If someone threw a fit because their 28 point beetweisen didn't cut it... well, bottle it and serve it to victims on your own.

I like the taste panel idea as well.  And what's wrong with beetweizen? ;)

The plan is to be in San Diego next year followed by a trip to Napa and then perhaps the PNW.  I hope to see you all there!

I don't do a bittering charge per se any more on any beers.  I FWH and then all late additions.  DIPAs are amply hopped.  At least in my opinion.  ;)

But does she like good beer?

+1  :D

If she does, I recommend her staying with commercial brews (remember Jolly Rancher beer)   ;)  all kidding aside, there is a lot to be said for happiness, in any form.  Best wishes, Wease!

This years Ofest used 50% Vienna, 30% Munich 6L, 4% Caramunich 2, and the balance pilsner malt.  Just finished carbonating, I'm very happy with it.  I too have ben toying with the idea of doing away with the Caramunich altogether in this beer.  I agree that it's not really necessary and I the long boil (90 minutes) gets it to the color I want without it.  The Ofest that I get on tap at Prost is the Hofbrau Ofest and is a light golden color, but still has a nice malty character.  I prefer the slight orange tint of the traditional beer.
