Security question is  last name followed by zipcode, no spaces, but it still dont work.  But if it did that would take all the fun out of it.  Waiting is the hardest part.

Nashville exported the cider/mead categories?  Do you know where they went?

Thank you for the links santoch.  Was hoping to crack 80 but am happy anyway, despite my scoring inability.  I never did come across any docs that described how to give/take points.

Thank you Jim.  I was hoping they would post the Proctor's sheets for comparison to your own to see where you went wrong.

Thanks guys for your help.  77.  Scoring accuracy was erratic/apprentice across all beers, master for completeness, certified or national for other categories.  I need to start judging with someone who actually knows how to taste.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Out of ideas

Not sure what kind of kegs you have, but a couple of mine you have to position the out tube into a dimple in the bottom of the keg, it can turn out of position when you tighten the post and plaster itself against the bottom of the keg, restricting the flow.  It did till I cut those ones off.

Equipment and Software / Re: pH Meter Calibration

To tell the truth, I despised that pH56, I must of had to call them a dozen times, mine was so unstable out of the box.  They replaced it twice and still a problem.  The last of 3 probes I bought in a year was the only one that worked to any degree.  I tried the MW101 or 102 cant remember which, but they needed more counterspace and hands than I can spare on brewday, the leads kept knocking stuff over and mine didn't stabilize much faster than the 56.  A nice pen style is the Hach PocketPro+.  Stabilizes in seconds, easy to calibrate and read.  It has a icon to let you know when it thinks it needs calibrated.  If you ever tire of your 56.

I had the same problem when using the pH56.  Try shaking it 2-3 times hard like your trying to shake off all liquid from the probe after the 7 and before the 4 calibration.  Worked for me.    No idea why.

If I lived in a better climate I don't think tilling up for a barley field would be out of the question.
