Yeah, Ken Schramm served some interesting meads at his presentation. I really came away from NHC inspired. I just kicked a keg of bitter and my Janet's Brown keg is almost gone. Normally I'd be upset, but now I'm excited because it means I get to brew again!!!! I have to keg a porter next weekend and I think I might set up another brew day soon thereafter.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. - C. S. Lewis, English essayist & juvenile novelist (1898 - 1963)
