In addition to all the good points made, my biggest concern wouldn't be having it done in three weeks, but not knowing if it was any good before entering.


I'm just not seeing how you benefit by rushing to produce an untested recipe as your first competition entry.

+1 to using a 1/2" corded drill for the high torque at low revs. I recommend looking for a drill with an adjustable trigger stop. This will allow you to set the trigger to the desired speed.

I've been using a Makita 1/2" variable speed drill with great results. 
That said, I'm excited to find the time to build a proper mill stand with a farm motor and pulleys.

No worries, chill on.

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.
