---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Thu, 04 May 2006 18:32:24 -0400 From: "David Houseman" <david.houseman at verizon.net> Subject: AHA Conference Continuing Education Credits I hope everyone else is excited about attending the AHA Homebrew Conference in Orlando. If you are a BJCP judge and have yet to decide to attend, here is another reason to do so. The BJCP has been working with the AHA in formulating the technical sessions. I'm happy to report that most of the sessions will provide the attending judges with CEP (Continuing Education Program) credits that will count toward your non-judging experience point requirements for rank elevation. Just think, you get to learn something in a seminar, drink some beer and get BJCP credit for doing so! Can't beat that with a stick. Judges, remember to know or bring your BJCP ID number when you come; you must have that to receive CEP credit. See ya' there. David Houseman Return to table of contents

However, your closing comment about a "millet roggenbier" has me confused. Roggen (German for "Rye") is especially high in gluten. How can you make a gluten-free Roggenbier? Peter A.

Date: Fri, 5 May 2006 14:32:28 -0500 From: Jim Eberhardt <jim at jacysplace.com> Subject: Rust on diffusion stone Hey gang, I'm getting my equipment ready to brew tomorrow (Saturday) and noticed there's a small spot of rust on my diffusion stone. Would it be a bad deal to use it? I'm thinking that it would only be in the wort for the time it takes to aerate (< 1 min) so maybe it would be alright? I'd hate to hurt my beer (or anyone drinking it, for that matter) but I don't think there would be danger in such limited contact. I'm not opposed to replacing the stone, but I'm primed (pardon the pun) to brew tomorrow. As an aside, I tried to search the archives but got no results (blank list only) on any of the things I searched on (even 'beer' returned no results). I tested it with two browsers (Safari and IE) and both had the same level of success, so I don't think the problem is on my end. Any idea what's going on? Thanks for your help!

Date: Sun, 7 May 2006 10:32:13 -0400 From: "Tumarkin " <Tumarkin at HogtownBrewers.org> Subject: Update on room groups for AHA Conference Hey y'all, An update on the info I posted about getting your club members' rooms grouped together.... I had called the 800 number & talked to a reservations clerk who knew what she was talking about, and it seemed smooth. However, I've had a two emails from folks who had a less than smooth experience - one was eventually able to make it work (by trying to link it to my name, rather than the confirmation number), the other had less success. I called the hotel back and hopefully have it worked out. Bottom line is they will provide this service for us. It's very unusual that a hotel will group rooms together, but they are willing to do this. However, there's a better way of going about it. Have everyone in your group go ahead and make their own reservations (that's the same as before). Then rather than trying to have the various reservation clerks do the linking, have one person in your group email Roseangela Furtado at rfurtado at wyndham.com with everyone's names & confirmation numbers and she will make sure that the rooms are together. She told me that their email server may block emails from certain domains, so ask her to reply back to your email confirming receipt and that she has done the grouping. If you don't get the reply email, then call her at (407) 351-2420. Again, spread the word that the deadline for early-bird registration is just a week away. Price then goes up, so register for the conference & the hotel now. And if you are coming as a group, be sure to register online for a table at Club Night, and a slot in the Hospitality Suite. See you in Orlando, Mark Return to table of contents

I will be at Snowmass (Colorado) for a conference in mid August and was hoping to include as many beer related activities as possible during my stay. Any info on local micros, comps, festivals even shops would be greatly apppreciated. Cheers Bryce van Denderen Melbourne Australia Return to table of contents
Date: Wed, 10 May 2006 21:56:26 -0400 From: "David Houseman" <david.houseman at verizon.net> Subject: Delinquent Competition Organizer Reports I've been unable to reach all of the organizers identified below who have delinquent competition organizer reports. If you judged at one of these competitions, please contact the organizer to get the organizer report filed or else there will be no judging, steward or staff credits applied. New competitions will not be sanctioned for clubs or organizers with outstanding reports. We're down to only one missing report for 2005 but the 2006 delinquency rate seems to be going back up.
