This year I'd like to do something different at WinterKingdom in
Northkeep and I'd like the input of all of my Brewing, Vinting, and
Every other year or so I (or someone else) does a basics of brewing or
vinting. What I'd like to do this year is assist the beginner and the
expert in a different way. Here's my plan:
_Brewing and Vinting, what're your sources?_
A discussion and review of sources for BVC.
Do you have a favorite book, manuscript, etc. you use to document
Take this opportunity to bring the books you always use and let
others look through them to decide if they want a copy of their
own. Be prepared to discuss why it's a good source. The books will
NOT be loaned out. If you don't want to bring them bring your list
I'm hoping for a little knowledge exchange here. When I read people's
bibliographies as I'm judging or just reviewing a submission I often
wonder if I ought to invest in a certain book and I'm sure others do as
well. Here's an opportunity to let others get a look at the body of
your source and help them make a decision as to the worth and
applicability of a particular text to what each of us is doing.
Here's a partial list of what I'm planning on bringing for you to look at:
