Hello everyone,

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 
Cordialing compatriots.

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
    your craft? 
    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:
