No worries...just a few flurries. Now the cold air sets back in for a couple days.

I'd recommend the the brewer's series as well as what's already been mentioned: "Yeast" Hops" " Water" and "Malt". Each book breaks down the principal ingredients of beer in detail and will help you understand each element
Excellent! Thank you for the quick response. Everything I kept reading kept giving the impression that you just drew liquid off the top into a jug, but that didn't really make sense to me.
Depends on style. Haze in most lagers is not good. Haze in an IPA will probably be forgiven, even expected to an extent. Haze in witbier is mandatory. BUT!! Appearance is only worth 3 points out of 50 and includes color, clarity, and head quality (color, texture, volume). If I were the judge and haze was the only appearance problem, I'd deduct 1 point at most. In ales, I tend to forgive light haze pretty quickly if other aspects are right on.I've never judged or even attended a competition, but do you think things like haze affect the later elements of judging? Will a judge be influenced into thinking there is something wrong because there is a haze issue?
Short story - if your 38 beer is brought down to a 37 by haze, that probably doesn't hurt its chances of winning much.
Maybe if everyone who orders one puts "Denny" in the comments, they will let you keep it.did they give you the zymatic or do you have to return it?
It's a long term loaner.
