From Bob Ostrander over at indianabeer.com:
Current plans are to brew 2 or 3 IPAs and a big porter. More pending participation. I believe we have 3 fully functional AG systems available to brew... we just need carboys to dump it in!
Brewed 4 10 gallon batches Saturday in m1's back yard. We had 2 systems running in staggered fashion. Here's what we brewed (My FG and ABV included):
Fermented at 69F for a week and crash chilled. I like's em FRESH!

From Ron Smith's email:
On March 21st, The SUDS Club (Homebrew club in the Jasper area) is going to tour the Upland brewery in Bloomington and peruse the area bars afterwards. As of now, the tour is slated for mid-afternoon, leaving plenty of drinking time for the rest of the day and night. Aaron Rasche (Red), member of both the SUDS Club and IBADS, has invited IBADS members to come along for the ride. Anyone interested?
No new content for a while, so I thought I'd post an update from my end. I got together with m1 and hicks the lesser to brew up some beer in Terre Haute last weekend... 10 gallons of an all grain amber and 10 gallons of an extract stout. I believe m1 is planning to post the recipes soon.
Plenty of details listed on their web site, so I wont repeat too much. This is a charity event and a certified BJCP, keg-only competition. With your entry/donation of a full keg, you get 2 tickets to "sample" all day, a shot at winning a nice door prize, and a big warm fuzzy for your charitable contribution.
Anyone else interested?
It was a bit hit at the brew-b-q. Special thanks to Mike, who invested several weekends in the project.
