The Pub / Naming a beer Isn't that easy
« on: June 10, 2013, 08:52:14 AM »
I came across this in print over the weekend. I think people hear about Magic Hat/West 6th and think it's a rare event. Sounds like trademark conflicts are becoming more common as the craft beer industry matures. All the more reason to need to protect your own.

Equipment and Software / Keg line cleaner
« on: June 02, 2013, 08:26:46 PM »
I built the line cleaner from Pimp My System and it's great! I don't have any spare kegs, so I really could only clean my lines when a keg kicked. This is both cheap and easy to use.

My only change would be to see if the adapter will fit on a larger sprayer. I have four taps so I have to refill often. Then again, small is easy to store.

General Homebrew Discussion / Visual BJCP style resources
« on: May 24, 2013, 11:53:34 AM »
I just found out I have a spot in the BJCP tasting exam at NHC, so on to mad studying!! I was looking around for visual guides and comparative tools because I know I learn best when I can see relationships between things (like beer styles).  I found a site with style characteristics represented visually which I thought was nicely done. The guy has four more other than the one here on this page under "Beer Recipe Design".  I seem to have to reload the page sometimes to get all of the images to show up, so I hope posting it here doesn't crash it.

Sponsored by a local budweiser distributor and apparently with a $1000 prize. I'd say that's doing it right.

But won't Alabamans have less than two months of brewing experience at that point?  ;D

Classifieds / Club T-shirts
« on: May 15, 2013, 02:26:14 PM »
Delmarva United Homebrewers is getting club T-shirts for NHC. Since this is the coolest forum out there, I'll let you guys in if you want to get one. You can order through this link and I'll ship it too you (don't choose the local pickup option though.)  We're ordering next week (this page will only be available until then) and the shirts will be ready in early June.

Just came across this digital hydrometer kickstarter. Says it will measure percent alcohol too.

Questions about the forum? / Where did Ask the Experts go?
« on: March 13, 2013, 05:57:19 AM »
I went looking for this page and it is gone. So are links to Ask the Experts on the main page.

Equipment and Software / Tutorial/Instruction sub-board in Equipment?
« on: March 11, 2013, 11:36:50 AM »
Every time I heard someone bought a March pump, I send them here.
 
http://www.homebrewersassociation.org/forum/index.php?topic=11157.0
 
But that means every time I need to find that post again as it gets buried deeper and deeper in the board.  I thought a sub-board specifically for tutorials like this might be useful. It would keep these threads organized away from the daily equipment questions/posts and make them easier to find later on. Thoughts?
 
AHA could then also solicit other industry people to post tips/tricks to equipment setup too.
 
That's my idea for the day. My work is done.

« on: March 08, 2013, 06:54:13 AM »
I just heard this morning that there is a bill in Delaware to allow growler fills at liquor stores.

Equipment and Software / FastRack
« on: February 07, 2013, 07:06:01 AM »
I opened the FastRack add at the top of the forum. The idea seems great. I've done the same thing with some old plastic beer cases I own, but this looks much more slick. Anyone buy them?  I might be convinced to give up my bottle tree.

I thought this was a good read. What do you think? Anything you'd add/change/delete?

The Pub / Oh that Google
« on: February 04, 2013, 12:21:41 PM »
This is probably some glich (maybe) but for some quick entertainment, go to a Google map of Albany, GA here - http://goo.gl/maps/pteZk
 
Albany is home to a MillerCoors brewery which is marked on the upper left side of the map.
 
Now type "brewery" into the search bar and see what it brings up.
