Most ever on line
« on: November 17, 2013, 01:48:56 PM »
So for some reason I scrolled all the way to the bottom of the forum listing and saw the static of

Most Online Today: 44. Most Online Ever: 406 (February 20, 2013, 12:43:17 PM)

So I gotta know, what in the world was going on on Feb 20 that so many people were on line?

>Under Construction- Brown Ale (4/5)
>In Bottles- Just Plain Pale Ale (12/12) - First Lager (12/28)
>On Tap - Guinness Clone (5/13) - Dry Hopped Red - Wascally Wabbit PA (11/19) - Barley wine (10/2009) - Nut Brown Ale(6/6)

It might well have had something to do with NHC. I can't really remember.

IIRC, an online magazine article about homebrewing linked to this forum around that time.
