Compost: I have fooled (literally) around with it for 6 or 7 years. Learn a little, composted a lot. At the end of the cycle always had good stuff for the garden. Now I have the task of talking about it at the next brew club meeting. Anyone have any pointers or info to pass along? I have learned you need a lot of aeration, and brown matter when you throw 30 pounds (dry weight) of grain in to the compost pile. Glyn So. Middle TN Return to table of contents

Korty" <ajk at iu.edu> Subject: Re: In Memorium, Ant Hayes 1970-2011 (Jeff Renner) I've been sitting here stunned for the past 30 minutes after reading today's HBD. Ant was a great inspiration to many of us and profoundly broadened understanding of English styles among judges and homebrewers in the US. He always seemed upbeat and positive and loved to talk with other homebrewers. I'll never forget the time he introduced a real Southern English Brown ale to dozens of us at the Cincinnati AHA. Last year at Minnesota, Ant's top-notch presentation on Bitters gave us a better understanding of Boys Bitter, Golden Ale, Burton Ale, and others. He explained the meaning of the phrase "gone for a Burton". When I remember Ant, I'll think of him sitting in a pub somewhere, enjoying the best Burton Ale he's ever tasted.

I suspect that there are not large differences morphologically between various ale strains, but perhaps there are notable microscopically differences between ale and lager strains and perhaps between brewers yeast strains versus wild yeast.
