I also talked with Barron last night and I think the class is gonna be next weekend (not this coming weekend). I could be totally wrong, though. I was pretty drunk.

Also, don't be surprised if you walk in the shop and I don't have a shirt on. I lost a bet about Diamond Rio last night.

I probably lost more brain cells in in Gainesville than I recruited through higher learning.

Brew Class is Oct. 11th ! Free Food. Free Homebrew. Bring some of yours, too!

Sorry, phrogpilot73. But if you're in town over the weekend we could meet up at the shop and share some beers. Maybe get some more people from the board up there.

Bring the ESB. It'll be fine, you still got a couple weeks. You should taste the beers Barron does. They emptied a keg of a beer last weekend that was only 4.5 days from flameout.

Hell, working in a homebrew shop, you learn to find the good in someone's beer. It helps when they're standing right in front of you waiting for a response. Got to work one day (had just woken up) and had a prehopped extract IPA waiting for me when I got there. Had to drink the whole thing in front of the guy. That was tough. Morning IPA with no hop characteristics.

*Note: I'm not saying good beers can't come from extract.

I remember the guy who use to work there told me a story of where a man brought in his beer and wanted to know what was wrong with it. So of course he gets a cup out to try it. Pours ... *sniffs* ... then says, "Ok, I'm not drinking that, what did you do?"

Turns out the guy poured all of his ingredients into the carboy and put the top on it. No boil, just opened up everything, threw it all in (grains, extract, hops, yeast), then bottled it.

Another guy made a 100% Wheat beer. That's it, just wheat and yeast.

I guess some people don't take hydrometer samples.

Should I bottle a sixer or bring the keg?

You could do either, we always have a couple kegs out there. But people bring bottles, too.
