I was on it, but it was pretty basic. The q/a portion was more informative than the presentation I thought.

It will be posted to their website in a week or two for anyone who missed it but is interested. I'll post a link when that happens.

Agree with the poster above that the Q&A was maybe the best part. I'll post some of them when I get a chance.

Last question for Dr. Bamforth was a request for a tip for homebrewers. His response was along the lines of "I wouldn't try brain surgery at home either." Amusing but a tad offensive to homebrewers. After reflecting for a second he said the three most important things for homebrewers are hygiene, hygiene, and...hygiene.
