---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Sun, 16 Oct 2005 22:30:34 -0500 From: "Stephen Johnson" <sjohnson3 at comcast.net> Subject: Post your location To the HBD community: While I'm sure that Jeff Renner is appreciative of all of you posting your location, I think the point he was making recently, as well as in the past, is to remind folks who are posting to the HBD to list their location when submitting information, asking questions, or soliciting help from the collective. Many of us who respond on occasion do so more frequently whenever a "local" in the area asks a question or requests information. For example, if there is a question about local water chemistry and if I know in advance that said query is coming from someone on the West coast, I may not respond to it because my water in Nashville, TN, is very different from the water in Sacramento, CA, and my reply might not be as helpful as a reply from someone on the West coast. The same goes for helpful resources in the area, such as homebrew supply shops, beer gas suppliers, hardware and welding, etc. If a poster does not provide their location, the information some of us may provide may be relatively worthless if it is regionally sensitive. Hope that helps... Steve Johnson President, Music City Brewers Nashville, TN Return to table of contents

A call for judges!!! Just over a 1000 entries!!! It didn't break the record, but it ain't too shabby! We made a dent in the Dixie Cup first round flights Sunday. Thanks to all who showed up to help judge. We did good work, but still need to judge a bunch more before this weekend and need your help to do it! We will be judging entries for Dixie Cup XXII again Tuesday evening (10/18) at St. Arnold's Brewery, at 6 PM!!! Please come out and help judge. There are still lots of styles left and we need to have a good turn out to make that dent bigger and be ready for this weekend! In an effort to get more commitments, we will be trying something different for the Tuesday evening session: RESERVATIONS!!! If you have a favorite style or can only judge a certain style, etc. call me or reply to this email and we will plan for that flight now and put you on the list for that panel (which will greatly decrease your wait at the flighting table!). Make your reservations now! The sooner, the better to insure you get your desired flight! Thanks for your support of Dixie Cup XXII!!! Na zdravi (to your health or cheers!)

Yes, I noticed this too, especially since I've been told that the Right Way is to harvest them in steps as the individual cones ripen. My solution has been relatively successful: delegate the task to SWMO.

I'm at Changi Airport, Singapore, drinking a Tiger. But my brewing coordinates are -35.14 <prohibited sign for degrees> South, 138.77 <prohibited sign for degrees> East.

Although it is nice to have a roll call every once in a while, and I'm enjoying reading the worldwide appeal for this forum, please remember to continue to add this little piece of information at the end of each post.
