So think about it. Do we want to recognize the club with the most points in the competition or not? If not, what should we be recognizing?Kinda wondering if you actually did read all 20 pages of this thread because I'm pretty sure that most folks chatting here clearly state they want this to be a competitive award and not solely be for the 2 clubs that actually have enough entries to win this award. If it's going to remain a tonnage style award, then I would like to see Radegast and Gambrinus elevated with more pomp and circumstance as both those awards are equally achievable for all clubs and AHA members, unlike COTY.
The BN Army is a club if they want to be a club. They don't need a board, a charter, a constitution, articles of incorporation, dues, or a meeting to be a club. The only requirement to be a club should be a group of brewers that share a common bond and have a desire to be together as one.I would agree with this, especially since two out of three clubs I belonged to would not be considered clubs if this was required. And neither one is the BN club.
I had 2 of 4 packages mysteriously 'disappear' last winter. Thinking that they got confiscated by customs as you are not supposed to ship alcohol across the border, I am trying to come up with a different packaging. Root beer sounds good.I have had beer freeze when shipping it in winter. Then it thaws in the warehouse and makes a mess. They have notified me, but thrown it away.
Buying your base malt and hops in bulk would help. A pound of cascade should be about 10 and 55 pounds of 2 row about 40.Maybe on your side of the Cascades Jim, but not around here. More like $16 for the hops and $60+ for a 50 lb bag of domestic 2-row on this side.
I never heard of it, but here is what the wikipedia page says:I have looked at a couple of the BNA NHC threads over there.
This one has to be corrected next to last [post.
The guy who said Disco Demolition was at Tiger Stadium has that all wrong. It was at Comisky Park in Chicago with a local DJ, Steve Dahl, as the master of cerimonies.
I didn't want to say anything about that to be polite. I think it was between games of a double header with Cleveland. The fans stormed the field and game two was a forfeit for Cleveland.
Disco Demolition Night was an ill-fated baseball promotion that took place on July 12, 1979, at Comiskey Park in Chicago, Illinois. At the climax of the event, a crate filled with disco records was blown up on the field between games of the twi-night doubleheader between the Chicago White Sox and the Detroit Tigers. Many of those in attendance had come to see the explosion rather than the games and rushed onto the field after the detonation. The playing field was damaged both by the explosion and by the rowdy fans to the point where the White Sox were required to forfeit the second game of the doubleheader to the Tigers.
Have you ever tasted the krausen on any of your beers? i can't say I have, but I imagine it would be bitter and nasty. But without hops in the ferment maybe it is more pleasant.I'm not surprised. These were newish microdistillers I was talking to, I imagine lots of people do things differently.For what it's worth, whiskey makers I have spoken to use beer yeast to ferment the wash, not whiskey yeast. One guy likes 1056. I didn't get to try his whiskey, but his rum won an award at the distillers competition they just had in Seattle.
This is true, though there are certainly many distilleries that have their own personal strain. Jack Daniels, for one.
Most of the guys at the home distillation forum recommend the chico strain especially to beginners. Back "in the day" some of the distilleries in Tennessee and Kentucky used to let you actually taste their krausen on ferments depending on what tour you were on. Wish I had gotten me a few samples. Non do that any longer that I have seen.
