Indeed, as others have also pointed out, this was my original intention.

I doesn't seemed to have overloaded the list at all. And I just discovered that one of our members lives near friends in a small town out east. It works.

Damon <djyhm at yahoo.com> from we know not where (as good a case as I've seen for including your location per Jeff Renner's post) is having trouble finding perforated stainless steel and is thinking of using non-stainless steel for brewing. >From the posts I've read over the past few years agonizing over getting iron oxide (rust) out of well water for brewing this seems to me to be a bad idea. Better idea IMHO is to see if there is a Metal Supermarkets franchise in your area [http://www.metalsupermarkets.com/]. Billed as the "convenience stores of the metal industry" they will sell to the average joe in quantities that make sense and there are a few locations in the Vancouver, BC area. I've used them to pick up perforated stainless for use in a smoker which I'm sure is no different from what you would use brewing - perhaps a bit thin but they do carry heavier thicknesses, and will even cut to size for you. If you are in the area, I have some small left over pieces that at a minimum will show if it's what you are looking for.

Date: Wed, 19 Oct 2005 17:11:55 -0500 From: "Craig S. Cottingham" <craig at cottingham.net> Subject: Questions about oud bruin I'm thinking about brewing an oud bruin. Horst Dornbusch's style profile in the May-June 2005 issue of BYO seems like a good starting point, but I have a few questions. Hopefully someone with some experience with oud bruins can weigh in. 1. The recipe calls for inoculating with Lactobacillus as well as yeast for the sourness. The BJCP guidelines suggest that acidulated malt can be used instead. I've never used acidulated malt, so I'm wondering how much is good -- and, perhaps more importantly, how much is too much? 2. I gather from both the article and the BJCP guidelines that a little bit of oxidation from aging is a good thing for this style. What's the best container for aging an oud bruin -- besides wooden barrels? Is there enough air entrained in the beer that glass or stainless will work fine? Is plastic, with its slight permeability to oxygen, a better choice? - -- Craig S.

Ale-X from the MontreAlers. Currently in Massachusetts. Commuting from Northampton and Brockton to Bridgewater and Medford (haven't calculated rennerians for any of these). Complicated situation which does make it impossible to brew. But, the good thing is, the New England Beer Fest is coming up on October 29. Are other HBDers going? It'd be nice to have some kind of a meet-up. The BeerAdvocate crowd itself is quite sizeable but maybe there could be a small gathering from the list. Going to Session 1 myself. Also, there's been a bit of discussion about podcasts, last summer. Actually, Graham Sanders had posted a couple of messages about his very own (Aussie) Craftbrewer podcast. Been listening quite regularly to some of these podcasts, including "Craft Beer Radio" and "Basic Brewing Radio." http://www.craftbeerradio.com/ http://craftbeerradio.com/CraftBeerRadio.xml http://www.basicbrewing.com/ http://www.basicbrewing.com/radio/radio.rss There's clearly a need for an HBD podcast. It would be a great way to announce competitions and competition results. There could be interviews with BJCP judges and other members of the HB world. Some of the more science-oriented HBDers could have a conversation about, say, batch sparging! And it would be nice to have something for the HB events like bigbrews and "teach a friend to homebrew day." Anyone interested? Cheers!

This is another friendly reminder that the AHA Teach A Friend To Homebrew Day is fast approaching. Sites registered before October 23 will be sent copies of Zymurgy for Beginners, our 24-page guide for beginning homebrewers. It's time to brew some beer for the greater good. The American Homebrewers Association's 7th annual Teach A Friend To Homebrew Day is coming up on November 5th (always held on the first Saturday in November). This is a day of service.....well, and fun, if it's not fun you're not doing it right.....where homebrewers around the globe gather their non-brewing friends, neighbors, and family to teach them how to brew up some beer. Why? Because more homebrewers = better world to live in! Last year we had 1179 participants from 137 different sites. Help us make this year even bigger. For details and to register your site see: www.beertown.org/events/teach/index.html. Cheers!
