Indeed, I did, and thank you for the correction. I wrote my post without
reference to my brewing notebook, and I have sadly been out of it for
about two years.

I would definitely welcome your input, and if you wanted to come out to
our brew sessions that would be great. I know just enough to be
dangerous, so a more experienced hand to offer some guidance and catch the
stupid mistakes would be good.

Kolsh might be workable. I have a problem brewing a beer I won't drink,
and I won't drink an IPA. I find that chewing on the hops flowers
directly has the same effect and takes considerably less effort. The
Amber recipe that I use is very good, but we would be going head to head
with the Rochester Red that the con serves, and I don't see any point in
duplicating effort. Especially since mine probably won't be as good,
owing to the inferior brewer.
