    Is it ok to ask a brewery for yeast?

    I have literally got gallons of yeast from one of the most popular breweries here in Alaska, they are usually stoked and always wanna talk beer. It would really surprise me if they turned you down. I'm sure its getting asked for free beer that gets old with them.

    Wood chips in Brett beer

    Ya, thats what i am basing it off of. He is actually a good customer of mine but he is a very busy man so I hate to bug him about little stuff all the time. I have a ton of chips already but your right maybe I should get some cubes. Good idea on the pinot noir, I think I will do that.

    Gabbf '13

    Sounds like its on the down low, gonna be expensive and very few tickets sold but I think it could be epic, or shall I say the opposite of GABBF. This is a little info, if you want more info you have to be on Facebook, that's where he will announce when tickets go on sale...

    Ya, I was pretty bummed that they had that in the program and when I asked for it the girl at the F/W booth acted like she had never even heard of it. I am pretty excited about the new event that Gabe Fletcher is going to put on.

    New to Anchorge

    I dont think I would try to brew outside, do you not have a garage? I have been brewing for awhile up here and my garage is unheated and its difficult enough for me especialy the clean up part. i still mash in my kitchen just to help hold the temp.

    I attended the "connoisseur" session and feel the same way, what a joke. I figured they would not pack the whole place but they did. Then they give you tickets and most of the brews I wanted to try were 3-4 tickets! WTF!!!!! Its not like we are paying for the brew, they are there representing...

    Fermenting in cold house

    That might be worth trying but I would need a really big cooler or alot of them. It sound more safe than what I have going I guess. I am also thinking about building a foam box and leaving it in the garage and using light bulbs inside for the heat. At least I could still do several batches at once..
