I just want you to know I hate you all! But seriously hope you all had a great time and didn't get the rain we got here. No more of these great days on family birthdays OK

Thank you Leo and Z for hosting. Heather and I had a great time. It was nice meeting some more HBT people. Looking forward to the next brew day.

Had a great time! Glad to finally get to meet everyone. Special thanks to HH for hosting all of us and for pulling my dog out of the pool!

I added some of you guys to the "how many HBTers have you met in person" thread, but I forgot Rick''s and Sooner's HBT IDs.

Just for clarity, Homercidal. IS Jim. Homercidal's friend is Tim. I have heard through the grapevine that Tim will be joining us online at some point in the near future. Apparently he has seen firsthand how awesum you guys are and finally, after months and years of my prodding, has decided to get on this forum and learn more about brewing and hang out.

HenryHill, thank you so much for the very warm hospitality! You have a lovely place and went the extra mile to help a poorly prepared Homebrewer get his batch in the fermenter. I had to scramble a bit because I left my hops and specialty grains at home, and Henry helped me out!

I used my own homegrown hops and found that I veyr likely did not dry them enough, so the weight was going to be off. I just threw a bunch in there. Assuming they were low Alpha, and high weight, I tossed what was about 5 ounces in as the flavoring and aroma addition. We will see. At any rate, it should provide me with a yeast cake for the 10-10-10 brew. At best, it will be the best batch ever. (Crosses fingers).

My only complaint for the day was feeling ill. I had what coudl be described as a fairly hungover condition, except that there was no drinking beforehand. Maybe something I ate? But I made it through and brewed and just wished I had felt better and could have enjoyed more of that wonderful food that prepared.

Someone made some stuffed jalepeno's wrapped in bacon that were very good. All the food was good!

Next time, though, I might decide not to brew myself. I was pretty busy with all of my own stuff and did not get a good chance to hang out and watch others and ask questions.

Now I have to go off and add some people to the how many HBTers have you met thread!

I loved it all. Especially trying everybody's beer. I enjoyed them all. (Except for the plastic rubbing alcohol ) I brought the poppers and Ledrman kindly grilled em up for me, cuz I was busy brewin.

Added some pics in my gallery.

Jen and I really enjoyed meeting all of you and hangin out for the day.

By the way, freddy, that was an AMAZING flank steak. I thought it was my favorite thing served. Well, that and the fantastic pork loin. I kept going back for more, trying to decide which was more perfect.

That flank steak was perfectly cooked- red in the middle, pink on the edges and I could cut it with a spoon. (Which was very fortunate, since somehow I ended up eating with a spoon, but that part is kind of foggy to me).

Also, who brought the graff? I thought it was quite good.
