Correct me if I'm wrong. Don't some german breweries still malt their own? If so, perhaps THEY benefit from a protein rest with their malt?

I read I can't remember where, that lagers require an optimal concentration that only pure o2 can provide.

The word require can be subjective in the brewing world

I've always been curious what peer review really means. If it means what it sounds like it means, as someone who understands what evidence is, I don't think peer review is evidence.

I'm too rookie to give you advice but for what its worth ive been having good success and getting lagers from 1.050 to 1.010. I've been told that the lions share of esters are produced in the growth stage. I start ramping my temp up a degree or two per day after the first 48hrs until I reach 62º and hold there till done. For me with 5 gallons that's normally 2-3 weeks.

I do a 90 min boil with pilsner malts. And by my math trub cone is part of the 10%... see the word AND between DMS and trube cone?

In any event im convinced that the rapid cooling of the whole wort that I get with my whirlpool IC benefits the beer more than the pump hurts it.

You miss-took my tone,  I can see how you did,  I apologize.   I was attempting dry humor,  I know you are trying to help, that's why I posted it here!

It's all good. Some of these guys haven't figured out how to read with the right tone yet. :D

This is reassuring. I was starting to worry about myself too....

Obsession means brewing weekly, planning always, and being on more than one forum.

I'm only on this forum so its no where near obsession for me.

You gotta get a dixie cup hat and a sleeved polo shirt when you get that bad boy up and running. I'll be skipper. Better yet, denny. Could stage that very photo. A 3 hr brew a 3 hour brew

Janis,
How about a ball park on when the other judge centers results will be posted. I'm afraid we'll all wear out our refresh buttons LOL
Hi Jim,

It's going to take a lot longer if I have to keep answering Forum posts and e-mails asking me about this.  As of this afternoon there are 7 sets of results posted.  I'm stuck on one competition today, so that may be all that gets posted tomorrow.  I was hoping to get all of them posted this week.

Cheers,
Janis

Ok, I took one for the team there guys. Leave Janis alone. :o
