Psst. Denny sent me
« on: December 16, 2014, 10:49:38 PM »
I went to Bader brewing supply in Vancouver, WA on Sunday for a book signing and presentation featuring Denny Conn and his new book "Experimental Homebrewing".
Denny's a cool guy, easy to talk to (not just about brewing), knowledgeable and willing to share his knowledge. It was a very enjoyable two hours and I really like what I read in the book so far.
He said this forum is a good one, so here I am.

That, or he manufactures Coleman Extreme coolers. Clearly the blue ones were his best design.   :D     

EDIT -  I mean, aside from all the amazing home brewing knowledge and stuff.
