Date: Thu, 25 Oct 2007 14:59:22 -0700 (PDT) From: Richard Lynch <rlny7575 at yahoo.com> Subject: Plastics and Hot water I'm curious what the consensus is about (potentially) harmful chemical leeching from plastics being used during brewing. Does anyone here feel it is, or isn't a valid concern? Or am I reading too much tree-hugger authored propaganda about "endocrine disrupting chemicals" found in plastic? My sincere apologies for injecting such an un-fun topic, into a forum about an otherwise fun hobbby, but sometimes the thought of steeping acidic, 155F water in a plastic container makes me worry. I'm trying to come up with a one-pot, stovetop mini-mash solution to my dilemma, if anyone knows of one, btw! Being-a-bigger-downer-than-my-beginner-status-warrants, (Sorry!)

Wilson" <twilson at spotbuyspot.com> Subject: Chicago Homebrewer I just moved to the Chicago area, Glenview to be exact, and I'm looking for homebrew supply stores and a new homebrew club to join. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Troy A. Wilson Sr. Twin Geeks Brewing - Cardiac Brewery Return to table of contents
Date: Sun, 28 Oct 2007 07:17:25 -0400 From: "Al Hazan" <hazan at ptd.net> Subject: Split Rock Homebrew Competition This is the third and last announcement for the Homebrew Competition to be held on Saturday, November 17th, at the Split Rock Resort in Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains. This competition is held in conjunction with their annual Micro Brew Festival. This is a sanctioned competition judging all beer, mead and cider styles. Entries should be shipped to the Resort at Split Rock, One Lake Drive, Lake Harmony, PA 18624, and Attention: Shelly Kalins Lutz, for receipt from November 3rd to November 15th. Entry fees of $5 per entry will be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. By simply entering, you will be helping this charitable organization help others. Checks should be made out to The Resort at Split Rock. Two (2) brown or green bottles with no markings are required. Please use rubber bands to attach bottle labels. No tape please. Any standard entry forms identifying the brewer and the appropriate entry category/subcategory are acceptable. The 2004 BJCP Style Guidelines will be used for this competition. Get this from the BJCP web site at www.bjcp.org. Judges are still very, very much needed and they should contact me to secure a position. Judges and Stewards can hand carry their entries if they pre-register with payment. All judges and stewards are required to be present by 8:30 so we can get started promptly at 9am. Judges will receive an entry to the beer festival or entry to the beer dinner for their efforts and need to indicate which they wish when they commit to participate. The BOS winner will receive a complementary weekend for two at next year's Split Rock Beer Fest as well. More information will be available at the Split Rock web site: http://www.splitrockresort.com/beerfest/. Or contact them at: spevents at splitrockresort.com.

Date: Sun, 28 Oct 2007 11:41:40 -0500 From: "Kevin Kowalczyk" <kevinkowalczyk at gmail.com> Subject: Making new hop rhizomes I read somewhere that you can make new hop rhizomes by burying the bines in a trench in the fall. You just have to mark the trench so you know where dig them up in the sping. I can't find the original article that discussed this, but I remember it did not make clear whether or not you cut the bine from the existing stem and root system when you bury them. Has anybody here done this? Do you cut the bine off or not? I want to get mine in the ground before we freeze here. Kevin Kowalczyk Chicago, Illinois Return to table of contents
