---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Thu, 20 Oct 2005 20:23:42 -0700 From: "Rowan Williams" <rowan at canberrabrewers.org> Subject: Visiting the US in December G'day all, I'll be heading over to NM in December this year on a work related trip - duration is only two weeks and in that time I'll also be visiting sites in Washington, Chicago and LA but I expect those stops to be overnighters - yeah, it's gonna be a nutcracker of a business trip :-( Can anybody recommend a good brewpub and/or supplier of brewing equipment in Santa Fe? I've heard of a place there called the 2nd Street brewery. What's their on tap beer like? Anywhere else in town worth visiting??? Any advice or tips gratefully received. I'll be packing plenty of winter woolies for the expectedly chilly weather but that won't stop me from downing a few APA's, steams and nut brown ales whilst in country!!

Hello all I am wondering if the temp of the boil is all that important for alpha acid utilization, or if the active boil is more important? Slight decrease in boiling temp at my 4200 altitude.

Date: Tue, 25 Oct 2005 09:30:25 -0500 From: "Susan Ruud" <susan.ruud at ndsu.edu> Subject: Call for Nominations Do you want to help improve the American Homebrewers Association and contribute to the world of homebrewing? The AHA Governing Committee is taking nominations for candidates for election to the Governing Committee for the spring 2006 elections. Since the last election the AHA-GC has changed from an Advisory Board to a Governing Committee. The new Brewers Association Board of Directors has charged the AHA-GC with the task of providing vision and staff direction to determine the future of the AHA, as well as help with ongoing issues such as attracting new members, communications and similar projects. Candidates must be members of the AHA and will serve a three year term. This is not a ceremonial post. AHA-GC members will be expected to serve on committees, be responsive by email, participate in phone conferences every few weeks and attend the annual meeting at the Homebrewers Conference. The Governing Committee is an important part of the annual planning and budgeting process, selects two members of the Board of Directors of the Brewers Association, provides input to the Board of Directors and serves as representatives for the AHA in their communities, providing two-way communication between association staff and Board and members and future members. We are looking for candidates who have a strong history of organizing and serving the homebrewing community. Once accepted into nomination, the nominee will be asked to submit a brief biography and statement for publication in the March/April edition of Zymurgy where ballots will be printed. On-line voting will be offered as the preferred means of voting. If you or someone you know would like to be considered for the AHA Governing Committee, please let us know by sending me an email nomination at the email address below. Nominations will be open through November 6th. For more information on the Governing Committee please review our bylaws at: http://beertown.org/aob/ahaboa.html.

Date: Tue, 25 Oct 2005 07:57:51 -0700 From: "Tomusiak, Mark" <tomusiak at amgen.com> Subject: Lager Attenuations Greetings all...I was perusing the award-winning lager recipes from the recent edition of Zymurgy, and was interested to note the low finishing gravities for most of the beers. They commonly had apparent attenuations higher than the maximum value listed by the yeast vendor for the strain in question. I'm curious whether other brewers commonly achieve lager attenuations higher than that anticipated from the strain being used, and if so what techniques are thought to contribute to this performance. While I have no problems with attenuation for my ales, my lager attenuations are typically on the lower end of the published range (e.g., if attenuation range is 73 - 77%, I get 73 or 74%), despite mashing at low temperatures (148 - 150 F), using large starters (2 - 3 L) and aerating with pure O2. Being a fan of dry beers, I'd like to improve my apparent attenuations by a few points. Suggestions appreciated, cheers, Mark Tomusiak Boulder, Colorado Return to table of contents
