It's more like a milky texture than juicy. I hate the term! I don't like the beers. It's like drinking tropical feathers! Pillowy.... is how someone described it. Who drinks their pillow?
Dirty pillows!

I have brewed on the Zymatic dozens of times since October and it's a good machine. As the brewer you're responsible for fermentation and packaging.
Ask me any questions about it.

JZ is pro and this is an amateur comp. Although, JZ's beers have really never tasted amateurish.

Don't forget about the mega-clubs entering in all the different regions. That fills up a region a lot faster than you you might think. It's a well thought out strategy. I don't fault strategy but the comment earlier about feedback to ego ratio is pretty correct. 1:4  Clubs included! :o

I say boohoo to you if you missed the entry window.  Apparently you have different priorities than entering NHC if you could not make any of your beers in before the number hit 7500.

You could have entered 5 different regions all day saturday.

I don't think there should EVER be a limit on how much homebrew you enter!!!!  Maybe a solution is to add like 5-10 more "first-round" judging centers and then make it a three round competition.


Early bird gets the worm. 

its funny how most people who complain about homebrew competitions, never volunteer for them.

You make a lot of assumptions...  I volunteer for a lot of comps in several states and am also an exam grader. ANYWAY - I think capping is a good way to allow lots of brewers to push forward their best beers to the competition. I also think registering in your own region is best, too.

Lots of people have other priorities over entering in the first 24hrs... like, oh, maybe, working?  Geezus you're a insensitive goob.

I dunno... something needs to be changed. There has been this problem in the past - I think capping the number of entries per brewer at 4 allows more to participate.
Just my .02

Dang.... Why not limit it to 4 entries per brewer max in your own region? You brewing machines that enter 15+ cannot be that desperate for ribbons. C'mon!
