    For those who haven't heard the bad news, Mike "Tasty" McDole has been moved into hospice care after a long battle with cancer. As you savor your next pint of Janet's Brown Ale, please say a prayer for him and his family.

    I was saddened last night to hear of his passing. He was a good guy, and never missed an NHC/HomebrewCon until his illness. I really liked him, and enjoyed chatting with him over the years. He will be remembered among homebrewing circles.

    Oh man, I hadn't heard yet. That's too bad. He was truly one of the greats. I feel fortunate to have some Janet's still on tap and will have to raise a pint to Tasty tonight. I hope he's at peace and no more suffering. Cheers Tasty!

    Another on the long list of reasons to hate 2020.

    In Brewing Classic Styles, Jamil Zainasheff says to toast to Mike's late wife Janet whenever you brew this recipe. Now we'll have to make two toasts. :(

    They're together now, so simply toasting the McDoles will work.
