This thread reminds me that I should check in on the Helles I have lagering.
Are those the barrier lines with a higher resistance than normal barrier lines?I'm also replacing the liquid lines in my kegerator with that ultra barrier silver anti-microbial tubing.
I did that a few months ago - really like the stuff. Very clean tasting beer. A mild warning - I was really irritated when the first few pours were fairly foamy, more so than usual. That goes away after a few pints. I read references to the foaming online. It does go away and pours beautifully, so no worries. Good investment IMO.
Amanda- the northern german pils I'm sending is with weyermann Barke pils malt. im digging this malt so if you haven't tried it, you will soon.Hell yeah! I'm about to try out a new one here as well: Ireks. I honestly didn't plan having you being my shipper, but I am super stoked about it. German Lagers are my jam.
Explain how the recipe fits the style's characteristics for aroma, appearance, flavor,
mouthfeel, and other significant aspects of the style; and describe how the ingredients
and processes used impact this style.
AbsolutelyCan confirm on the grading exams bit. For those who are exceptional test tasters (and that's admittedly a huge caveat), a National score should only require study and diligence.
I think their point was that prepping to teach the class gives you a good enough grasp of the styles and scoresheets to get there (IOW, that's the study and diligence they recommend).
I am afraid I will never make GM. I just cannot spare the time to grade exams.I'm "trying" if you use that word in the most vague sense. Sure, I'll admin and proctor exams, but grading is one of my least favorite things to do. So it'll probably be mid-2018 before I've graded enough exams to hit GM.
3) According to many advanced judges I've talked to, the path to National is to teach the Tasting Exam class, and the path to Master is to grade exams. Seems legit.
I actually forgot about it until I saw this thread.I didn't get the email, but I attempted to "join" a few months ago. Still haven't been approved by the powers that be. Probably not like-minded enough.
Yeah I tried to "join" recently mainly for reference and nothing....
