What a great week a CBC. Hung out with my buddy Tom Schmidlin most of the week (Tom hung with the Alabama crew last night and wasn't overwhelmed!). Got to visit Wayne's impressive Station 26 brewery and get an extensive tour. Bought a meheen bottling line! 6 packs of yellowhammer coming to grocery stores in south east soon!

This was my first conference, learned a heck if a lot and had a blast!

It was great to meet Tom and Keith and the rest of the guys from Alabama.

Thanks for making the trek out to the wilds of East Denver. I am glad you enjoyed our little fire house.

At some point I hope to be able to come out and visit with you.

The best thing I found at the show was a firkin bung removal tool for $25.00. We also bought a "Bulldog" for transferring beer into and out of whiskey and wine barrels using CO2 for about 1/2 of what GW Kent wants.

Sorry I missed you guys, I heard it was a great conference. Someone had to make some beer this week though. ;)
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

i had a great time with the AL crew, it was really a fantastic conference.  I learned a lot too, but didn't buy a packaging line :)

Wayne, thanks for the hospitality. You're making some great beers there!  If you have a chance, let me know where you found that bulldog, I'm going to want one.

Sean, sorry we couldn't get together.  Grand Rapids?  Or Portland next year?

Tom,

The Bulldog is from MoreBeerPro Gas Transfer Tool

It doesn't come with the sight glass, but I have a couple that I use now during transfers. If you have a spare valve to use with it, that will help.

Thanks for the comments on the beers.

Wayne
