Congratulations to Corey Martin, of my homebrewing club the Austin ZEALOTS, for winning this year's Sam Adams Longshot contest. Corey's beer — a Munich dunkel — will be brewed commercially by Sam Adams and be a part of this year's Longshot mixed 6-pack.
In the next few weeks, I will be blogging about my recent trip to Belgium. BYO's publisher (Brad Ring) took me and our advertising driector (Kiev Rattee) to the Brussels area in early August and we visited some interesting breweries, beer cafes and beer-themed restaurants.
First though, I'll post the experimental protocol of the next BYO/BBR experiment -- fermenter type. In this experiment, we're asking homebrewing to brew 10 gallons of beer and ferment it in two different fermenters (bucket, carboy or cylindro-conical). Alternately, you can brew 15 gallons, and ferment it in 3 different fermenters. I'll post a protocol and what data to collect in the next couple days.
