I was looking to grow up some yeast for an American barleywine an this thread inspired me to make an Am. brown this past weekend. It's busy chugging away in the fermenter right now.

Myself, got a nice scoresheet detailing how my Schwarz was "way too roasty" while the other judge said it was "very smooth but lacking any roast"
...whatev, I'll take my 37 and try again next year.
I have read many of my scoresheets with this on there. One judge picks up astringency and the other says its creamy.
Who or what is Soper and what is the tour about?I'll be at NHC, but not sure about the Soper Tour yet. Depends on how a few things fall in my schedule. So much to cram into a few days!
Surely. It's the way to Ninkasi though (if you listen to Soper lol)
Well, 3 of the past 4 Ninkasi winners were on the SoperTour.
On the other hand, this year's NHC has an opportunity for true crap shoop in action. Cat 26 Specialty. There are 13 sub cats! 3 of each placing at each site for round one, means many of those sub cats will be at the final mini-BOS. If there is one world class example of each, or even just 9 of those sub cats... its just going to probably come down to which sub cats the mini-BOS judges tend to like better. Maybe they will medal three American Wild Fruits? Or maybe none. That will be a fun table, and I'll bet there will be some debate.
I have the same setup. I eventually plan to replace it with this
I like the fact that the stone uses a flared fitting to attach to the wand. A while ago I saw some complaints about other ones where the glue holding the stone to the wand came undone.
