I would also expect that the second presentation would be a little smoother due to practice for some of the speakers.

My Saturday presentation features (at least) 5% less stammering.

The Saturday show was good.
Well...I woke up this morning and I got myself a beer

Has anyone had trouble downloading any of these? Seems like the end gets cut off of everyone of them.

Same thing when I tried to listen. The wild yeast talk cuts off about 15 minutes in on each of them

Can't wait to download and watch some of these...I hope they all aren't cut off!  2012's were great to watch during an extended mash or boil this past year.  Thanks AHA for this tremendous resource!

One thing that has been annoying as I listen to the seminars is that a lot of the presenters have given temperatures in degrees Celsius without providing the corresponding temperature in Farenheit. Since this is the American Homebrewers Association, I think the majority of us use *F in our day-to-day processes. I know that I've missed some useful information listening to these talks simply because when a speaker mentions something like 70C for a mash temp I can't really relate it to anything. Providing the appropriate conversions would definitely help engage the audience a bit better.

Had the same problem on the malting talk. :-\
Beer...Now there's a temporary solution!

I'm having trouble logging on. First says "oops. You tried to access members only content." When I click login in, the next screen give me another error "we could not create your new user account." When I click log in at the top of the screen it takes me to the home page with no fields to input username/password.

Any ideas?

In science and industry/manufacturing,  everything is done in metric values...typically.

C=1.8(f)+32
This is, of course no help while you listen though. Print a conversion chart.

Here is quick mental procedure to go C to F. Will use 70C.

Double the degrees C. So 140
Subtract 10%, so 126.
Add 32, so 158F = 70C.


Learned that from Pat Babcock on the HBD.

Worked just fine when I used a fast connection at work.  Maybe time to upgrade from my phone company DSL!

I know I use the *F word in my day-to-day processes....no need for translation.  ;)

But the conversion chart for standard brewing ranges (mash temps, ale ferm and lager ferm) is a great idea to help with learning and memorizing.
You wouldn't believe the things I've seen...
