[ale] Database consulting in return for homebrew?

ALE with ale!! Works for me!!

We need an ALE get-together that involves adult libations concocted by
crafters of adult libations. :-)

Maybe we need an ALE-brewing engineering get-together as well. What parts do
we have and what's missing from the collection? I can speak clearly that a
1/4 O.D. copper tube is too damn small to siphon wort through for a
counterflow cooler.
