I haven't been since they took it from the Windsor station to the place bonaventure. I was kind of disapointed that they took it inside.

My favorite beer from that event was the Eisenbuck Bière de Glace. I was left disappointed by the event too though. The selection and number of stands was subpar compared to the last couple of years.

i used to want to attend but was always working. and always heard it was overrated. in my mind, it sounds wonderful. i picture always having a beer in hand and strolling around getting more beer.

in reality. i'm sure it's jam packed sardines. slow moving, holding your beer to your chest, excuse me, 'scuse, sorry, 5$ for a ticket that'll get you 30ml of beer and need 200$ to have a good time. and who can still taste beer after you've had 5. everything tastes like **** after that.

i'm staying home.

Depends at what time you're going. If you're going from 5 til the end or during the week-end, yes it's going to be that way.

It's worth it going during the day the 2 first days. It's not packed, all the good beers are still available and there are no 450 ****** yet.

My uncle has a system in his basement and brews his own beer every week. Never tried it though.

I brew my own right on my stove top in my tiny apartment. You really don't need much space or equipment. 150 bucks will get you everything you need to get started. Very addicting hobby!

Yep I do, I'm upgrading my kettle right now, will put an element inside to heat faster and better since my setup is only a stove and a 1800w induction cooker. I BIAB about 2.5 gal and I can't really get it to boil so I don't get much of hops extraction.

It's gonna be better now tho once the element is up. Next batch I'm brewing is gonna be a belgian blonde, will be good!

I'll be going back this year. The indoor-only location they had going on for the past few years was awful, just awful. Glad to see them moving back to an indoor-outdoor setup. I'll be there Friday, can't wait!

Yeah but it's looking like the weather will be horrible wednesday and thursday (days I'm going) so the outside experience will be ruined

The reality of it is actually much more in line with your first paragraph than your second. It's too bad you're dismissing something based entirely on false assumptions.

But hey...more beer for the rest of us!

That's awesome. I plan on doing my first BIAB next batch. Thinking a hefe.

I'm a little worried about doing a full boil on my stove as well. Do you have a link to the element you are buying for your kettle? I did my largest partial boil last week at about 4 gallons and it was definitely testing the limits.

I simply bought a normal element for a water heater at Canadian Tire like this one :

I drilled a hole on my kettle and I'm about to weld a locknut on it to be able to fix the element inside.

That's pretty sick man. Smart idea. I went with an aluminum kettle so welding is kind of a ***** for me right now. I'll keep dreaming about a big back yard and a nice propane burner...

Please report back on the venue. I'm very curious.Though it can't possibly be worse than the cavernous concrete hole that is the place Bonaventure.

Just to make sure, is this event taking place outside of Palais or inside like the auto show?

Part is inside and part is outside but I don't know how it'll work exactly...have to wait for Seb to come back with the scoop.

I'll be popping in for an hour or so this afternoon to hit up the pubs before they run out of all the good stuff and perhaps do a more comprehensive run later in the week.
