The IPA is ok, the coffee stout is really good (reminds me of Left Hand).

I have no use for White Ales, nitro or otherwise.

The best part of this setup is no matter when you submit during the registration period, there is equal chance for everyone.  Sure beats the "old" days when you had to be online right when it opened and click refresh, refresh, refresh...

Good luck to all those entering.

Definitely doesn't have to be the same batch, and I assume if you get an IPA through, you'd really want to rebrew it.

All my entries for NHC are lagers and ciders, so I just bottled up a six pack of each and hold them aside.  Nothing worse than getting a entry past first round and realizing you drank the rest of the keg, and now don't have time to rebrew.

Done.  I like the option about creating memes with other homebrewers.  I bet we'd see a bunch of good ones there :)

From the rules and regulations page:

"Must be free of ink, paint, or paper labeling other than the competition entry label. Obliterate any lettering or graphics on the cap with a permanent black marker."

And I even looked at that page, but there were so many words :)  Thanks.

I was hoping to get some beers to KC this year, but I lost track of time.  I will not be staying up late tonight to bottle and send 2-day delivery.

Still plenty of time to get them there via UPS Ground especially from Chicago.  Unless you are entering ciders...then you should probably just forget it  ;D

Here's the link to the comp site:

How many times can we vote?

Once per browser apparently, unless of course you clean out your temporary files.  Hopefully it doesn't restrict it to one vote per public IP Address.

Rookie question I know but does anyone remember if the NHC 1st and 2nd rounds take bottle caps that have markings on them, as long as the cap is blacked out?

I bottled entries for 3 comps the other night, one being NHC, and realized I had caps with a picture on them.  I blacked out all the caps for the comps I sent to, but wasn't sure if NHC allowed this (the other comps say they do if blacked out).

I have no idea what Carolina's O-line is like but it can't be worse than Cannon and Fleming.  I really hope the Pats can find some linemen over the off season.  It would be nice to see a running game again.

Whooee, it is a fun day in Colorado.

It really was a good football game, with the game on the line still with 12 seconds to go.

I have been snickering all day...sometimes breaking into full yodel
.....thinking about Brady getting pummeled.

I love it when the Bellicheaters come to Mile High and have to go home and shovel.



I see that Talib hit on Brady at the sidelines had to smahrt
in more ways than one.


Don't worry...all of New England will be yodeling when Captain Forehead gets pummeled by the Panthers.  He better double up on the HGH if he wants a chance to survive this one.

Everything is ready or lagering and almost there. 

Ima finally get that Major Award this year.   8)
It would be nice to get out of the first round again. Been striking out the last couple of years.

I know what you mean.  The first year I entered, I got a silver in the finals.  The second year, got 2 through the first round but nothing in the finals.  the next year, nothing in the first round...I'm going to wrong way!!

As a Jets fan I loved seeing a rival go down in flames. I especially appreciated seeing Gronkowski crying because the refs wouldn't give him a flag. I'm beyond tired of seeing NE whine for flags every time a play doesn't go their way.

The Super Bowl could be a good one. Both teams have solid defenses which means it will be up to putting points on the board to win. It will be interesting to see Carolina have to adjust to that defense. If Denver's offense is a bad as it was in the second half of yesterday's game it will turn into a boring game so I'm hopeful Manning come ready to play.

Jets....Jets?  Hmmm..I seem to remember them  8)

They should have call pi against Denver earlier in the game since it was exactly the same thing they called Ryan on about 10 minutes earlier.

This was the highlight of the game:

Come to find out the tablets weren't the issue, but it was the network.  But Microsoft gets all the blame!
