Date: Sun, 13 Apr 2008 01:10:15 -0700 From: Robert Tower <roberttower at sbcglobal.net> Subject: Re: Future worldwide malt shortage? Jim Cave asks about typical US prices for 50 lb. bags of base malt. $80 seems awfully inflated. A quick check of the more popular web retailers here on the West Coast indicates a rate of anywhere from $30 to $50 depending on type and country of origin. Maybe the $80 price quote included shipping? My LHBS charges $40 for a bag of Great Western 2-Row. Bob Tower / Los Angeles, CA Return to table of contents
Date: Sun, 13 Apr 2008 12:56:47 -0400 From: Ed Westemeier <hopfen at malz.com> Subject: BJCP reception at the NHC in Cincinnati If you're planning to attend or judge at the National Homebrew Conference in Cincinnati this June, you should plan to attend the Wednesday evening BJCP reception. The BJCP is subsidizing most of the cost, so it's a really good deal. Great beer, a three course dinner, beer, a scoring calibration exercise, a BJCP briefing, a British style review, beer, a cider workshop, cider, a mead exam prep session, mead, and more, all for only five bucks per judge. You can even bring a spouse or friend for an additional charge. See the website, www.bjcp.org for more details. Spaces are strictly limited, and they're going fast, so register now.

Date: Mon, 14 Apr 2008 10:45:18 -0500 From: Joe Katchever <joe at pearlstreetbrewery.com> Subject: False bottom material Hey all- I'm looking for a sheet of stainless steel material to use as a false bottom. After a big fiasco trying to have one made- only to have them make the slots too wide, then having someone try to repair it unsuccessfully - I'm looking to start over. Ideally, I want a slotted screen with 1" long slots at 1/16th of an inch wide and spaced 3/8ths apart. Stainless steel -.050" thick. I've tried some industrial supply catalogs to no avail. This would be a custom order at hundreds of dollars. I need an oval shape about 3' by 4'. Does anyone have any suggestions for me. I would be willing to buy a whole 4' x 8' sheet of this material and share it with one or more people who also want a nice false bottom, too. Thanks, - -- Joe Katchever Wisconsin's West Coast Return to table of contents
