Home Brew?

Alkoholische, my dad, and I have been working on our own homebrew with some success.  My question is, do any of you homebrew and if so have you made anything even slightly similar to Auginstiner Hellas?  I figure with as much as you guys like the beer you might have run across something.  We can get Auginstiner bottles right down the street and they are rather tasty, though it is nothing like what we had over in the Father Land.  There are some Munich Hellas kits that I currently have my eyes on.  Any thoughts or advice?

Never too early...

to start talking about 2013.

I'm sure we will have this discussion for months to come, so let's get it started now. Should we change our structure for the 20th Anniversary trip?

We have traditionally traveled on Thursday, arriving on Friday, and departing on Tuesday. Since this will be a milestone event, I propose a change in logistics. Let's make this a true event, with plenty of time to relive the past and explore new venues. I suggest we leave on Saturday, arrive on Sunday, and depart on Friday or Saturday, depending on your preference.

There are several advantages to this idea, the biggest of which is probably less crowds during the week! Maybe we can return to the days of spending more time at the tents. Remember, we will all be 20 years older and would enjoy the comfort of the benches.

Please opine.
