Following up a little further - I'd have to dig into the data that was gathered by the third
party, but that's not happened yet. From what I was lead to understand, data was collected from
all the tie...

Quick word on methodology as I've had it explained to me - the decline figures are calculated
both from survey responses and wholesaler responses which should hopefully smooth out some of
the missed r...

When I did it before I did it once with a 1/2 sheet cake from the grocery store which is
usually something like 11"x15" or so. You could also, if you're a mad man go for a full sheet
cake which is 18x...
Posted in thread: What I did for beer today on 08-25-2014 at 05:26 AM
Because of the vagueness of AB 2609 (just passed Thursday) we weren't able to take our
homebrew.No vagueness about the matter and it pre-dates AB-2609. The CA ABC issued a FAQ
earlier this year to cla...

I think the real question is going to be: where's your gravity at? If your gravity is
sufficiently low and the beer itself tastes clean (e.g. no diacetyl, etc) - then I would
aggressively cold crash t...
Posted in thread: Anyone tried WLP585 Belgian Saison III yet? on 08-10-2012 at 02:48 PM
Actually, I have no clue the sourcing of Saison III. I begged and cajoled and tried to wheedle
it out of Neva when she gave me a vial of it for my NHC talk last year and no dice. She's

If you missed out on a ticket, i highly recommend signing up for the waiting list. There will
be inevitable discussions at home that lead to ticket turnover.

Agreed, geometry is key. When I last saw dupont's system, they used big squares. Since most
homebrewers aren't going to have access to different geometry shapes, the easiest thing they
can do is elimi...

Howdy,I don't have my notes in front of me, but that little tidbit came straight from one of
the yeast doctors. It does seem to back up some of what my experiments with pressure capping
batches show. ...
