I've also seen it used to intentionally induce haze.

Thus, the loss of viability observed at the end of the cultures could be due to the depletion of both carbon and nitrogen sources (Fig. 2) rather than to fluid-mechanical stresses caused by agitation . However, the combination of both effects with the production of toxic metabolite (such as ethanol) may cause higher loss of viability than each factor alone."
I have gone through 3 sacks of Avangard pilsner malt over the past year or so, and am loving it....the flavor and the price.
Haha. No, I stopped around 2013... when I found a local homebrew club. The BN was my first source of beer knowledge, so I will not hate on them.Yes. You must not listen to the BN.Does everyone understand that Justin doesn't write the rules for COTY?Did anyone ever think this?
Btw, well said Justin. I still think the rules need changed, so that you (and we) can go with option 3.

Probably my biggest passion re: BJCP is improving Feedback. I want less of the "add more Munich" or "uncover your boil" guessing and more "here's how your beer differs from the style:..."
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.
Somebody obviously is buying the crap out them. Never tried one, but I can't deny that I would if a free opportunity presented itself.This thread coupled with the audio of the award is about the saddest thing going on in brewing.
So you haven't had a Bud Light Strawberry Lime-a-Rita?
. Unfortunately, my wife likes those. Dreadful damn product.
Yeah, every time we've had multiple winners there's been grumbling starting at year 2.
Face it, repeats are a common occurrence with most of the years of this award - the award was created in 1985 - 1986-1995 it went to the Sonoma Beerocrats, 2001-2006 QUAFF, 2007-2009 St. Paul, 2011-2015 TBN. So out of 30 years of the award 24 times it's gone to a repeating club that's on a long streak.
It seems most people don't know this or choose to ignore it. If the rules are changed to exclude the BN QUAFF will dominate. The same problem will exist with the same people complaining about something else. There will also be a new problem caused by alienating those in the BN.
