Hey all!

Just want to chime in to say hello and introduce myself.

Name is Jason, live up the BX, and an avid homebrewer in the NYC scene. Just signed up for the upcoming BK wort competition - hopefully I get picked.

I brew mostly American style ales, but have a pretty weird mix. Recently I've started an interesting Wild Yeast Project on my blog:

Benjamin and Danielle - thanks for starting this forum up! Probably will drop by the store sometime soon.

Jason

Sweet!
Hey Jason! Welcome to the forums. It's kinda dead, but maybe we can bring it back to life!
I went over your blog and it looks interesting. Viruses at Columbia huh? Must be dealing a lot with Dr. Racaniello? At least he's the only CU virologist I know hehehe. Met him once...
I'm an undergrad who's graduating next week and then going off for a Molecular Bio PhD at SUNY Downstate. Been interested in virology lately because I spent the last 2 months constructing recombinant baculovirus expression systems as we ran out of our protein, need to express more, and our old virus stocks are no good.
Anyway, good to have you!
You should come over to some homebrew meetings, they're really entertaining and educational. I only go to the one at Beer Table though.

Yeah I Dr. Racaniello! As a matter of fact I work in a lab right next to him. I also have appeared on his TWIV talking about XMRV since I worked this dubious virus at one point or another. Right I'm working on a whole genome RNAi screen for genes requried for HIV infection (I work as a postdoc in Dr. Goff's lab), among other homebrewing projects.

I'm already a member of the NYCHBG, but I definitely can make the Beer Table meetups every once in a while. When do they meet?

Whole genome HIV RNAi? That sounds interesting. RNA is the future!
I'm working with human mitochondrial tRNAs for most part - how pathology related mutations affect enzymatic processing in the maturation pathway of those tRNAs. Our lab is hardcore biochem and enzymology so there isn't much equipment to use to play with yeast. Pretty much all we do is in vitro... only use cells for protein expression.
Beer Table meetings are usually last monday of the month.

By the way, you ever thought of making microbe blends? Like a 2:3:1 mix of brett:lacto:sach for a brew? I'd love to do that, but again, I don't have the equipment to do that.

Hey, welcome! I work up at Columbia too (doing web stuff for Lamont). We should swap brews some time!
