If it was closer to home I would go but a litle to far for my liking.  Anyone willing to carpool from Freddy?

I'd like to go but I need to get more info on the details. I can't seem to find it either.

I mentioned to SWMBO during dinner but didn't get much of a reaction.  ???
Funny, she was about 1 foot away from me. Maybe she didn't hear me.
I'll have to run it by her again tonight.

When I first glanced at this, I dismissed it out of hand, but now that I look closer, it could be an interesting time.  Doubtful I could get away though.  If I'd known a few weeks ago, I may have been able to arrange it with SWMBO.

Is anyone from Freddy going to this? If so and you dont mind carpooling I'd be willing to pay fuel.

Well, this was a really awesome weekend/workshop! 

Even thought I know how to brew, I still learned alot of neat stuff; like how to count cell under the microscope, how to malt and more.  The lab there is just a dream place and it was great speaking the chemists/biologists and learning the scientific aspect of brewing.  I will definitely start to pay alot more attention to salts, mineral, ph etc from now on.  Itís nice that Iíll have access to lab testing and really knowledgeable scientists/beer enthusiasts that are open source.  Lucky for me thatís itís just beside my place :)

Also meet a bunch of nice people from diverse backgrounds; commercial brewer, wine makers, distillers, scientists, malters, cereal growers and of course some home brewers.  I took the opportunity to make some nbcba evangelism :rock:

Just so long as you keep this in mind...you already make F'ing awesome beer...sometimes scientists like to complicate the simple things.

Although it's cool to know what's going on behind the magic, when you already have the magic, don't lose it trying to find it.
