I'm going to win Homebrew Club of the Year - alone.

I didn't get an email. Just logged in and saw my entries needed edited and paid.

Thanks, Jim. I logged on and it was waiting response, so I edited my submission. I tried to pay, but there was an error (tried Chrome, Firefox, and IE). So hopefully that gets ironed out. I didn't get my first choice, but at least I got into Saint Paul.
Not using Discover Card are you?

I was editing my info and one of the judging sessions for Philly is listed at 2am on Saturday! That's hardcore!

This may have been covered already but if we log in and set one of our entries to be a pale ale for example but in a couple weeks decide the kolsch is better, is that something we can change at that time or are we set in stone once we pay for our entries on which category we must enter?
You can change your entry categories up until the submission deadline - March 17 I think. Just make sure you print new bottle labels if you change.

Three pounds in 5 gallons? That goes on pancakes.

I've heard of a person or two who ferments in the kettle, but they drain the wort off the trub into another container - clean and sanitize the kettle - then put the wort back.  Those glass front wine refrigerators make great fermentation chambers. AmandaK has 3! #jealousy

Kegging and Bottling / Re: What size CO2 tank is appropriate?

5 can work but you'll refill often and spend more per pound on gas. 20 is great if you have room. Since you're building the kegerator, just plan to run the gas line out so you can keep the tank on the outside.

Questions about the forum? / AHA Forum Ticker on
« on: February 11, 2014, 09:28:39 PM »
I was just at the AHA main page and clicked a new forum post from the feed. Then I got a message that it was off limits. Tried again with a second. Topics = "Supplies for 2014 competition sites" and "Problems Logging in to the comp software". I assume these are in admin boards and shouldn't be showing up on the feed. Probably want to fix that.

You could steep roasted grains separately during the mash and pour it on top before sparging.

I use buckets.  I know there are people who love the better bottles, but other than being unbreakable, they have all the other drawbacks that the carboy design has.
And they have a built in handle!

Oh I completely misread "its often necessary" as "Is it necessary".  :o  Sorry.
I don't adjust my times when doing this, but I've never tried it any other way.

It all depends on the alkalinity of your water. If it's low, then this might be a good idea. If it's high, you might need to roasted grains to get the correct mash pH. Have you know the alkalinity of your water?

Janis, could you report on the typical number of entries that brewers were able to get in? I only entered one, so I was pretty sure to get it in.
The article said everybody who got in gets 4 entries. (Less if they asked for less)

I haven't received an email yet and I judged at NHC last year, so they're definitely not done notifying people.
