All I can say is YES!  I can't make Philly this year, but Grand Rapids is very close to me and I can't wait.

Great movie.  I don't think I've ever seen my son laugh as hard as when Pee Wee drives the Harley right into a billboard sign.

You could also try FWH some Amarillo for a nice smooth flavor.

American IPA with the fresh Amarillo and Simcoe that just came in.

I went to Short's about a year and a half ago and every beer that I tried there was excellent.  You might want to check out their website

Brewed up a first runnings Quad with 90%pils/10% Munich only.  Added 1lb of D2 yesterday to it.  Happily chugging along at 68F on a repitch of Westmalle yeast.  Debating adding another pound of D2 versus the dark candi sugar?

Topped up the mash with pils, munich, vienna, caramunich, and carafa II for a Dusseldorf Alt for the second runnings.  Fermenting along well at 58F with WY1007.
You just gave me a great idea.  I was planning on making a quad in a few weeks and two beers are better than one ;)

Nice to hear that your heff turned out great.  Was the problem the kegs and fittings?

I might try a Christmas Ale Clone recipe from Great Lakes.  My wife and friends really like it and I just want to see how close I can get to the real thing.

Fun stuff!

I think it'll be a Rye Pale Ale.

You know, in the past that when the hops I wanted weren't available, I took my bad luck as an opportunity to try out different hop varieties. A few years back during the hop crisis (was it 2008?), there wasn't as much demand for Nelson Sauvin, and I was pretty happy with the beers it made. Two years ago, I wasn't able to get any Simcoe, so I bought a pound of Apollo and was surprised by how bold and interesting the flavor and aroma was (I still consider it to be the #1 most underrated hop). So I say, try out some varieties you aren't familiar with. I know that, despite the "onion/garlic" thing many people get from Summit, I love that hop, and it is usually pretty readily available. And for every wonderful Simcoe/Amarillo IPA out there, there are plenty of delicious Summit/Apollo beers waiting to be brewed.
I agree with you and I'll have to try some Apollo.  I did order some Simcoe and Amarillo from Fresh hops though because I just can't do without them.

I'm coming to the realization that I won't get any Amarillo hops this year and it feels like I've lost a loved one. :'(
Turn that frown into a smiley?
Thanks Jeff! I prefer pellets, but I will take what I can get at this point.
