I am quite bummed as my Nut Brown Ale is probably my crown jewel brew. I'd like to see it judged further than my friends killing the keg the day I put it on....

Just got my sheets. Once again, the beers I filled off the tap got infected. I guess I need to learn my lesson this time. Two years in a row I lost 3 beers!
At least my Steam Beer got through which was the only one I bottled from the start.
Hmmm... Time to check what you're doing when you bottle off the tap. I sanitize EVERYTHING and use a new picnic tap if I'm bottling for competition.
Five outta five to mini BOS, and two blue ribbons. I'll take it!
My Steam Beer got through in Philly but my Nut Brown Ale did not. Want to see that sheet to see if it was because I took it off the tap again and it got infected or if it was a judging preference.
Very happy to have a dog in the hunt again though!!!!
Amber Balanced works pretty nicely IMO.Thanks! That's what I'm going to use.
New personal low score of 15.5...on a beer that medalled last year. LOL
currently drinking a liter of it since I don't have to save it for finals.
Hopefully your scoresheets will have some indication why it was scored so low. That sucks...I've had entries judged in the same day that won a gold in one comp and got a 25 in another.
Struck out again.
made the mistake of having very hot tacos last night. 2am heartburn from hell and couldn't go back to sleep.
so, figured why not start the brew day around 3am. all done and yeast pitched by about 8am for my northern german pils.
now i think nap time is calling
