agree with all the above - great day and thank you to the organisers. And some very tasty beers at the club night too!

Great day as always.
Kudos to speakers, venue and most importantly the organisers, you did a fantastic job!

Just to echo all of the above, thanks to all involved in putting together another great day. I know that a lot of hard work was put in behind the scenes, but it certainly paid off. Thanks again!

Saturday was great craic. I particularly liked Philip's yeast presentation and the Mystery of the Vanishing German Sours. Thought the Tropical Stout at club night was class.
Well done on all the organisation, no mean feat!

Well done to the team of organisers, from what I've heard there was so much work done in the background - thank you all so much for organising such a great day out.

Folks there was some confusion about the the Yeast on offer for those that attended from WHC.
The yeast was in fact brought to the event and will NOT be distributed by the HBC.
Unfortunately some attendees took it upon themselves on the day to help themselves to as many yeasts as possible where they should of only taken one.
If there is a yeast that you were looking for, collectively as the club we need to see if we can sort that outside of WHC or HBC as these sponsors have fulfilled their obligation to us.
Perhaps Mods want to split this off so folks who didn't get any can out out a call for a fair share or potentially get slurry from a fellow brewer?
Sorry about the confusion.

Also really enjoyed the day as my first brewcon and thanks to all the organisers.

Just a question were the results of the exbeeriment announced or the difference in how the beers were brewed?

The logistics of the beer experiment with such a large crowd didn't really work out. Didn't help that the beer which wasn't brilliant to begin with was really spoiled by being shook up in the taxi.

Red and blue were the same beer, yellow was the odd one out. Yellow was fermented at room temp, the other beer was temperature controlled.

And the big reveal from the end was that I broke all the rules of homebrewing on the brewday. 20min mash, cold sparge water, 30min boil etc.

Only because nowt was explained to us before the beers were poured.

I heard (too late) that you logged onto the experiment [www.brulos..Brewconn.. something] to log your opinion?

BTW: I got Yellow correct
Remember: The Nationals are just round the corner - time to get brewing

This is why we can't have nice things.
We were talking on the north county WhatsApp and it looks like only one of our members actually for one.

I've a vial here and I'm planning on slanting it. I'm picking bottles up for our competition from James next week, so could drop some with him if anyone's looking for it.

Also, anyone know what strain it is, optimum ferm temperature etc? I know John said it's a bock yeast.
