---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Sat, 17 Jun 2006 08:23:11 -0400 From: "Lemcke, Keith" <klemcke at siebelinstitute.com> Subject: Durango Homebrewing Rally at SKA Just a reminder that the last week of July is bringing two great homebrewing events to Durango, Colorado. Our Siebel Institute/Fort Lewis College Advanced Homebrewing Course is being held from July 24-28 ( http://www.siebelinstitute.com/course_desc/homebrewing.html ) and on Saturday, July 29th there will be an American Homebrewing Association membership Rally at SKA Brewing ( http://www.beertown.org/email/aha/membership_drive/ska.html ) . If you are coming to Durango for the Homebrewing course, take an extra day to attend the rally, and if you are coming for the AHA Rally, you may want to check out Fort Lewis College and talk to some of the Homebrewing course students & faculty at the rally (and maybe visit some of the other great breweries in the area). See you in Durango! Keith Lemcke Vice-President Siebel Institute of Technology Return to table of contents

Date: Sun, 18 Jun 2006 23:03:17 -0400 From: Judges <judges at flbrewer.org> Subject: Last Call for NHC 2nd round judges and stewards Last Call for Judges and Stewards at the 2nd Round of the National Homebrew Competition! We still need more Judges and Stewards! Come be part of the largest Homebrew Competition in the World! The AHA would like to have ~9 judges per category (6 minimum). (Here is the preferred procedure: Split the 24-27 entries in each category into three 8-9 beer flights, with three judge panels per flight. Each panel will push 2-3 beers. Then the senior judge from each initial panel will sit together and determine the top three using a fresh bottle of each beer.) Using simple math, that means there are 243 (162) judging positions and 81 stewarding positions that need to be filled (9(6) judges (3 stewards) x 27 categories = 243(162) judging and 81 stewarding spots) just to determine the medal winners! Pre-registration for judging/stewarding is essential as we are trying to pre-assign flights to facilitate the process so do not delay! Sessions will be held Thursday Morning, Thursday Afternoon, and Friday Morning. (Again simple math, if we do 9 categories each session then we need 9 x 9(6) = 81(54) judges per session!) Preference to judging positions will be given to people holding a BJCP certification. However, if not enough BJCP judges are available, then individuals with judging experience that do not have BJCP certification may be used. If this occurs, no more than one (1) non-BJCP certified judge will be on any three (3) judge panel, and at least one (1) National or higher ranked BJCP judge will be part of that same three (3) judge panel. If you would like to Judge or Steward please send the following information to Judges at flbrewer.org or stewards@flbrewer.org respectively: Last Name First Name Preferred Name or Nickname BJCP # (if applicable, even if just planning to steward) BJCP Rank (if applicable) Categories eligible to Judge or Steward Categories ineligible to Judge or Steward (i.e., you have an entry in the 2nd rd of the NHC) Categories you would prefer to Judge or Steward Categories you would not prefer to Judge or Steward Available to judge or steward Thurs AM Available to judge or steward Thurs PM Available to judge or steward Fri AM State you live in (Will be used to try and ensure each panel has regional diversity) Your homebrew club (if applicable, for statistical purposes to see how many different clubs are represented) email address (or other means of contacting you) Also ensure you have registered for the National Homebrew Conference to participate in other activities going on around and after the judging/stewarding. If you have already contacted us about judging or stewarding, you should have received an email to let you know you are on the list. If you did not get an email please contact us again! Look forward to seeing you in Orlando!

Date: Mon, 19 Jun 2006 15:03:07 -0400 From: "Ben Dooley" <bendooley at gmail.com> Subject: open fermentation procedure? Hello all, I've decided to explore the world of open fermentation. I have a few questions about the procedures. First and most importantly is, how long should I leave the beer in the open fermenter? Do I only leave it until the krausen recedes? If so, can I then transfer it directly to a keg, or should I follow the usual procedure of moving it to a closed secondary fermenter? If anyone could point me in the direction of articles, resources on open fermentation techniques, I would be forever grateful. Best, Ben Dooley Return to table of contents
