With summertime here, you can't be too safe with yeast, seeing how it sits on the delivery truck getting to the house. In the summer (with a 2 day ship), my icepacks are still a little cool to the touch, so it gives me a nice warm-n-fuzzy ;)
Fantastic!

I exchanged emails with him a few weeks back.  He's been very busy with real life, but was going to Australia to speak.  He hopes to be at NHC in Philly.
Good to hear, too bad he's been so busy.
Go big AND go home.

too bad Kai isn't around anymore.  Where's he been? He's been updating his blog, I see...just not into the forums anymore I guess.

That is great news, I figured life got in the way. I really enjoyed talking with him at the 2010 NHC. His doppelbock was excellent!

Hey, how many days until Philly?  :)

We'll need every one of those days to prepare for Philly.  ;)

I'm on the local committee and the GC sub-committee...and there will be a ton of work to do in preparation for this prestigious event.  :)

...as you very well know Denny.

BTW...you are now the 8K postman.  ;D

So, anyone craving a malty German lager right now?  I know I've got a Hacker-Pschorr Oktoberfestbier in my fridge at home that is calling my name!  Now, to brew beer that good...one day.
Go big AND go home.

all flipping day long.  i just brewed my ofest, but screwed up my mash and it will be more of a session beer.  but that is okay. may try to get another one mashed correctly ( i was not paying attention and the mash temp went way too high) within the next few weeks.  dusseldorf next then refest
