    Has anyone brewed this one yet?  The recipe looks great as is, but I'm thinking of partial mashing it with some Maris Otter and maybe a specialty malt or two.

    The carbonation has to come out, one end or the other.
     
    The only thing better than a 5 second burp in front of your wife is to wake your wife up at 1am, cover her head with the covers, and yell FIRE IN THE HOOOOOOOOOLE for 5 seconds.

    I will say that between the Braxton headquarters and the Braxton labs, this alone made the trip worth it.  An amazing variety od different flavors.  Thank goodness I'm only doing flights and not full pints

    Dang.  Wish I had stayed longer.  For the record, I was getting very tired, and my knees were giving out on me.  Text time I will be in better shape

    Having a great time with @D Kristof .  Noticed on the wall,  they have a dozen Cicerone exam certificates.  All but one are green beer server. One is a true bronze bordered ciceron.  Impressive

    Made it to Northern Kentucky early enough to stip by The Party Source.  Huge liquor store with a very impressive section for pick 6.  Spent too much money,  but got some interesting stuff.  Hanging out now until 11, when Braxton Labs opens.  They have a beer releasing today that is Chardonnay Barrel Aged Hibiscus Gose....gotta try that one.  From here, I will go to the regular Braxton brewery for a flight, then on to the hitel room

    So it looks like this is a go.  To summarize, @scouterbill will be at Jungle Jims on Friday.  On Saturday morning, he and I will met at Braxton Brewery in Northern Kentucky, on his way back home and my way up.  I will meet up with @D Kristof at the event.
     
    I will PM the two of you my cell phone number so that we can stay in contact.

    Well familiar with Jungle Jim's, as I used to live in northern ky, and they are great for purchasing foreign foods.  I know they have a meal at the event, part of the admission ticket.
     
    And yes, I'd rather go stag.

    I'm working out the logistics of this one. If I go, I'll head out Friday morning so that I can check in to the hotel and go to the Friday night festivities. Sleep in Saturday morning to head back home by noon.

    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.
