Any chance you can get your hands on Supplecation or temptation by RR? I can't ship growlers of HF, but could probably get some bottles. I can do some heady topper, and did you want the Maine brewing lunch too?

I'm actually in Portsmouth, NH. I'm just a huge fan of VT and the beers there.

I don't know of its worth anything but I go to keene every Thursday for work. So if you're looking for a hook up and are willing to drive a couple hours I could help you out.

Hey man, I actually grew up near keene, and will be making the trip in two weeks. Do you want some blue lobster? The ipa is incredible honestly.

I heard of blue lobster just yesterday. I guess the guy who started it, or maybe it was a brewer left Hill Farmstead to go to blue lobster.

Yeah, the head brewer (Dave) worked at HF for 2 years or so. Their new IPA "A Town Called Earth" is very similar to HF Abner. Really good stuff if you ever want to make an exchange.

So how did the harvest go? Did you use a stir plate? What kind of steps did you use to grow the starter. I currently have a Conan harvest underway but it looks like I am not gonna get anything... a little worried.

I started with an 8 ounce starter using 1 ounce of DME then stepped it up with 16 ounces of water adn 2 ounces of DME. Gonna do a final step tonight then crash it tomorrow to see what I have, if anything.
