Homebrew Competitions / Re: BJCP Certification Thoughts
« on: June 24, 2015, 01:42:48 PM »
I'm certified with an 83 tasting score and have not taken the written exam.  A friend and I were going to try and get in on a written before the guideline shift. I'm just feeling like I need to spend some time being certified, gain more experience and let the new guidelines settle in a bit.  Really glad to hear about Amanda's project to put together a study group outline.  I that will be really helpful to focus preparation.  I'm anxious to see how the new guidelines affect competitions, judging and exam preparation.

I was told to remain seated until the bus came to a complete and full stop.  Are we there yet?

Wow, beautiful trout.

Wet/Dry vac and a steam cleaner will take care of your carpet.

I haven't run the data yet on an xBmt you participated in comparing wlp800 fermented at 50 vs 66, no pressure... plan to get it published on Monday-- 40+ participants from NHC!

I am looking forward to seeing these results.

+1.  I'd like to see something similar done with WLP830, which is known to ferment fairly clean at warmer temps.

I recently made a Helles at the Green Dragon and the Peltier Chips failed on the chillers. As a result, the WL835 German Lager X fermented out at ~75*F, no pressure.  The resulting beer, that I call "Helles?" is surprisingly clean and true to intent. A touch of ester but nothing like I was expecting.

Nice score Charles!

Yeah, that's where I looked. No dice, thanks though. Maybe they're uploading in batches.

Looking forward to when scores actually post, though.  I suspect they probably entered scores for all the places first and then started entering the rest before they noticed they were accessible.  I suppose they'll flip that switch back after all the scores are in.
Well, my scores are actually in now.  Apparently scored a 37.  I'm always curious as to how that long trek across the desert affects beers.
I couldn't find mine.

And I agree, fantastic beers you shared!

Hmm... Not seeing any scores on my listing either.

I want to look, too.

I think I'll wait and postpone the disappointment.

Indeed, I'm looking forward to sharing the disappointment with family tomorrow evening.

Seriously though, good luck to all the entrants!

False alarm Joe,

I followed the links with squinty eyes to see if the info was actually there and it is not. You can open a .pdf of the form letter but there are no results posted, nor at the bottom of the entries page.

pFriem is really doing some well balanced work.  They made a Belgian holiday ale last year that was simply beautiful.
