    Spent a very pleasant afternoon at Bear Republic in Healdsburg quaffing Hop Rod Rye during our
    wine country trip. Excellent tip, Janx.

    Had three visitors during the session. Much IPA was consumed and more than a few stories
    swapped. A terrific session despite the fact that ProMash tells me that my efficiency was a
    mere 78%.I'll never...

    Spring is here, the sun is out, and we might even see 60 degrees (15 for the rest of the world)
    today. My garage smells like Malto-Meal from the mash as Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon"
    plays in t...

    I'm a member as well. The discounts at the Great American Beer Festival alone will more than
    pay for the membership fee. It's a great pilgrimmage if you've never been...

    During the warm months I like visit Squatter's (a brewpub in Salt Lake City) when their Full
    Suspension pale ale is served cask conditioned. It is an exquisite pint.Guinness, in my
    opinion, trancends ...

    Update: As soon as I posted yesterday morning I walked downstairs and saw that the lid had
    BLOWN OFF AGAIN from the 6.5 gallon fermenter during the night. Apparently, the lower stem of
    the airlock had...

    After brewing all afternoon (and taking many trips to the keg) I finally put Janx's House
    Bitter recipe onto a slurry of London Ale yeast at 8:00 P.M. At 10:20 it sent the fermenter lid
    into low orbit...
