I wanted to know if anyone was going to be going to get a free 5 gallons of wort. I will be at sea . so no luck for me. But I wanted to make sure everyone knew it was available. It also sounds like a day in August to see how much each person influences their brew post-wort.

Wow hadn't heard about this. One of the guys in the homebrew club is a good friend of the brewer who founded that brewery, so I suspect some folks from Austin will end up carpooling over for that event. *cough*

Looks like the details are here on their website.

I was there, good times. On the way home I picked up a packet of Belgian yeast and threw it in the wort. This is my first time using a Belgian yeast so I have no idea how it'll turn out. The only reason I went with this yeast was because my fermentation freezer is full so the only temperature control I have at the moment is a bathtub.
