Like Stevie asked, your refractometer gets thrown off in the presence of alcohol and the reading needs to be adjusted to get the correct FG.

It will be one heckuva final. Hoping it includes the Pens obviously. We deserve it after all the injuries. Makes it worthwhile​

I liked Anaheim but do like Nashville getting to the final for the first time. Hoping that will satisfy them

Can't help you, but I would assume you are correct. Not sure if that looks good or not for Hefe, as I have not brewed one myself

Congrats, Frank!
As I originally said, Thank You Denny, and Martin! No hardware for the comp, just 1-3rd places got recognition. The stout got Honorable mention listed after 3rd place, so I assume it placed 4th, as no other entries got HM

Thanks Jon, I will update with scores when I get them. It will not likely be until next club meeting (third Friday of June) as they stated nothing will be mailed out as it was a club only competition. Hoping I did the recipes justice and scored well.
     The doppelbock had me scared, I tried 3 bottles on Friday night and all were way undercarbed; I had tried a couple a couple weeks prior and found them to be overcarbed. No idea what happened there, but I can only assume that the bottles I sent were close to proper levels. Brewed day was March 3rd from a gamma sealed bucket that had been sitting with all grains un-milled since fall 2015! Glad I finally got around to brewing it. Not ideal, but I guess it turned out well enough for second place. It beat out another doppelbock, but lost to a Dunkels Bock.
     The stout was brewed February 15th. In the end, neither entry was likely at its peak, with the stout being on the older side and the doppelbock only getting about 3 weeks at 35° for lagering. The rest of that batch is still sitting at 35° for as long as it lasts

Smallish, local club comp, 99 entries
My Doppelganger Doppelbock (Denny's bacth 434 I believe) took second place of 5 Bock/Amber entries
My version of Martin's BruN Dry stout took Honorable Mention of 7 stout entries (first was Imperial, Sweet 2nd, and an Oatmeal took third)
No score sheets yet, judging was on Saturday. Pretty happy for, essentially, my first competition entries.

Big thanks out to both Denny and Martin for all the help they provide here and the delicious recipes I attempted to brew!

I have not mounted mine. It rocks a bit if I'm not paying close enough of attention

It's always a good idea to recycle your chilling water from your heat exchanger for clean up. The first several gallons will be hot water too! If you are doing multiple batches in a row your heat-exchanged water is great for doughing in the second batch because it will already be warmer than tap.

I use the hot discharge of my IC to hold in the mash tun to rinse equipment during cleanup.

I like this and will put into use on next brew day. I have collected a portion of my discharge and used it to rinse my IC, but obviously it could be used for more. I have collected in a party keg bucket but the idea of my cooler mash tun is brilliant
