This is the first sour I've brewed that did this. 100% Pils, Wyeast Roselare, and tart cherry concentrate. Finished at 1.010 with my FG samples 2 months apart. 1.010 still freaks me out so I kegged it. Gentle acidity, cherry flavor balanced with Brett and Belgian fermentation character. Otherwise pretty clean. I'm digging it
That sounds and looks nice. Great head retention for a Sour beer.

I hope Amarillo and Chinook play nice together.


They play really nice IMO. Used them together quite a few times. Not far off the Amarillo/Simcoe thing but yet has its own thing going.
I haven't used Chinook in a couple years and Amarillo is probably my favorite American hop which I use quite a bit. The last couple of years I've been busy trying all the new hop varieties...kinda nice to get back to the classics.

I'm only entering two this year because I don't have a lot to choose from right now. Probably an American Barleywine and German Pils.

does anyone know if you can use glass bottles with a breweries logo embedded in the glass like Sam Adams?  I thought I saved some bottles for the competition but the only ones I have left for certain beers are in sam adams bottles.
They should be fine.

My first batch over 10 years ago tasted like beer and I've been hooked ever since.

I've always appreciated your input. It's nice to hear from a pro brewer's point of view who still contributes to the home brewing community.

Munich Dunkel made with Barke Munich Malt  and WY 2206.

Looks awesome, Dan. I have a 2206 Dunkel (double batch) with Barke Munich that's not quote a month old yet. Close but not quite as clear yet
 Pretty tasty, huh?  :)
The color looks more red with the back light. The flavor is very nice-rich and malty.

That Barke Munich is just superb, aroma and flavor.
Agreed. Now I just need to convince my LHBS to carry it.

Heh, of course I play devils advocate.
If I lived in say Germany, or had access to really fresh examples consistently I would not brew. It's all I brew for myself, and strive to have the same taste/quality of it. It would be wicked easy(and if anyone has ever seen beer prices in Germany wicked cheap), to go literally anywhere and get awesome beer. It would be a no brainer for me. Hell I could probably survive here off my occasional fresh examples, and Coors banquet, (love that stuff) if I tried hard enough. I tell people this all the time, I only brew to vill a void.. When/if that void is filled, see ya bye!

While I still maintain the author of the article is a moron, I have to agree with Bryan here.

The number one reason I brew is that I am trying to brew beers that have the monastic flavor profile I prefer. Not exact copies, but same profile and spirit.

If I had my way I'd drink nothing but all four of the Chimay beers exclusively and not brew. That could get very costly of course, so I brew in an attempt to satisfy the taste I desire without the burden of $6 bottles.
I think you guys have been sniffing too much oxygen. ;)

That is a great looking beer. Nice foam considering the abv.

I have not had a barleywine is a long time. It might be about time to have one again. When's SN Bigfoot come out? That used to always be my go-to.
Be nice to be drinking beer today, but I like to take a day off a week, and Sunday is that day usually.
I make a 3-5 gallon batch every year in December. I like to do a vertical tasting with friends this time of year some dating back 7 years. My oldest right now is a 2012. These beers are meant for sharing or one and done.
