David K. might find that no one is willing to respond to any other inquiries he might have.

Maybe.  Does anyone remember BlueFoxy?  We never stopped talking to him.  ;D

Paul
Blue Fox Icy.  Now there was an interesting forumite.  Did he ever post anything related to brewing?

Not that I recall. Sometimes I wonder where these guys went. Anyone remember Triple Freak or Mcruz from the MoreBeer forum?

I didn't know Blue Fox.  Triple Freak yes.

...And all that knowledge and history on the MoreBeer forum... gone forever.   :( :( :(  Northern Brewer forum is nearly as dead...  :(

But how much of that knowledge would still be relevant?  Kinda lime Desiging Great Beers....once it was an amazing book loaded with lots of useful info. Now, 20 years later, only a bit of it still has anything to do with what and how we brew.
When is Ray going to put out an updated version?

I had heard it was a project, but the Cicerone thing blew up, and takes all of his time.

Yeah, I wouldn't hold my breath.

Maybe he could designate someone else to do it?

With the amount of information available today, from so many sources, and changing so quickly, I don't think a book like that would have the kind of impact Ray's originally had, or have anywhere near the longevity it did.  It's a different world in homebrewing now than it was in the 90s -- and we have Ray's book to thank for that in no small part.  It served its purpose well.  RIP DGB.

I once tried to designate someone else to hold my breath, but he didn't last long.
