  1. Gee.....no updates in six months, then two in less than one week. This time, added the three new National Parks recipes, plus a few minor fixes here and there. Note to Mr Beer folks. The picture for Hidden Lake Amber shows a DME, but the recipe is calling for an LME. Just wanted to check and find out which is correct MrBeerRecipes.xlsx
  2. First update of the year. Just adding the latest recipes. If I missed one, please let me know MrBeerRecipes.xlsx
  3. Yea, well I probably would have to fly, and have a layover somewhere in South Dakota. In time, but it'll be a while before I can afford to fly. Yoda.........In an airplane
  4. Had a great time at the MUG Midwest meeting. Thanks again to all who made it. I will try to schedule another one for next year. I'm hopeful that other people will step up and try to hold a "local" or "regional" meeting for their area. If you want to do one, please send me a personal message, and I'll tell you some of the things to do and not do to make it work. One of the things I enjoyed most was sitting in the hotel rooms and sharing/discussing beers. This is not something I can easily do where I live. The places close to where I live have very few taps, and most people drink American lagers, not craft beers. There are several excellent breweries in Louisville and many places that have lots of craft taps, but to drive there and back (30-60 minutes) is risky. What I'd like to do is go somewhere, meet up with beer aficionados, and share/discuss beers. I'm wanting to do weekend drives to places for now, perhaps fly to places in the future. Weekend get-aways for a pint or two. So, tell me where to go. I'm thinking of weekend trips to Indianappolis IN, Columbus/Dayton/Cincinnati Ohio, Nashville/Knoxville TN, and perhaps St. Louis MO. If you live in or near these areas, let me know what weekend is good for you, and I'll schedule some time off to pay you a visit.
  5. There are plans for "something" in October. I can't release details yet, but I will soon. For now, everyone and all keep the days of October 11-16 free.
  6. A great day today with the MUG Midwest team. we got a late start, well deserved considering the beers we enjoyed Friday evening. finally got our act together and made it to 3 floyds. The tour was very good. If you make it to this place, definitely do the tour of their facility. lots of beers sampled, and FINALLY @C-ya joined us. Due to a personal matter, I left, and freed up my seat for him. About 6:30pm we gathered in Josh's room for another beer sampling. C-ya brought an excellent Oktoberfest beer. We went through all 12 of Bonzai's beers, and our official beer judge said they were mostly excellent. Two had issues, and I'll PM him directly, but overall great beers Sadly, c-ya, creeps and friend Jeff will be leaving tomorrow. Josh and I will be in town, but probably do things on our own until late tomorrow when he has to leave. I want to thank *EVERYONE* at Mr. Beer for this event, and letting Josh join us. Creeps, C-Ya, and Jeff, great meeting you guys, and hope to see you in October Yoda
  7. For the record, if you don't know who is who, I'm the one who is drunk
  8. Trust me. They will be sampled and judged....by one pro and three amature beer judges And enjoyed by all
  9. Summary of yesterday and plans for today Day one was a lot of fun. When @MRB Josh R arrived, @Creeps McLane, his friend Jeff and I were ready to go to 3 Floyds for supper. Josh was ready to eat too, so we waited for him to unload his car and we all went to eat. We did sample some of their beers, but that's more planned for today. When we got back to the hotel, the hotel staff allowed us to use the conference room for our tasting of beers we brought. Small samples of each, but there were a LOT of different beers. So many that we couldn't finish all that we wanted to sample, and haven't even looked at the main event, @Bonsai & Brew's shipment. Today, once we get up and start moving, we'll go back to 3 Floyds for the tasting and tour, and we'll return here to sample Bonsai's beers. I'll post the results of those either late tonight or tomorrow morning @C-ya, I will send you a personal message with my phone number. Call or text when you arrive, and we'll tell you where we are
  10. Cheers
  11. Dag nabbit. I will tey it tomorrow
  12. Josh has arrived and we are all hungry, ao we're going to 3 floyds now for a bite and a beer
  13. As we wait for Josh to arrive, @Creeps McLane, his friend Jeff and I have sampled the four commercial beers that I brought. Creeps video recorded it, and we'll have it posted in the near future.
