[ale] Database consulting in return for homebrew?

The current batch is a bottle-conditioned all grain brown ale roughly based
on Papazian's Monkey's Paw recipe from the first Joy of Homebrew.  I don't
have my notes handy, so I can't tell you the ISG and FSG, or even what my
hopping was.   It came out plenty rich & chocalaty, and I've had some good
reviews, although I haven't entered it in any contests.  I added some
jaggery as a booster which seems to have contributed some interesting

A RIMS system is definitely in my dreams, but right now I'm mashing in a
picnic drink cooler and sparging through a gravity-fed sprinkler system (a
"beer tree" I built from plans in  BYO magazine). I have just aquired a
laboratory stirrer which I'm anxious to try out at the  end of my next boil.

The batch in the secondary alas _is_ syrup. I brew outdoors and have
difficulty with temperature control in the winter. Besides, I was
introducing a buddy  to the joys of propane and large pots of boiling wort.
I racked it this past weekend and it seems to be quite hoppy.

NB that Jim Kinney is a homebrewer of note here. Hey! Maybe it's part of the
Open Source Culture!
