With very few "human" resources, I have sent Michael multiple questions via twitter and he always responds promptly with thorough answers (yes, I know there are only 140 characters. He's clever). Recently, Michael posted that he has accepted the position of beer consultant for a new upstart brewery in San Diego, Cal, Modern Times Beer. I wish him all the best with his new beer venture on the west coast.
Cheers to the Mad Fermentationist!
