One time I entered a Munich helles as itself and a blonde ale, the helles took BOS and the blonde took honorable mention in BOS. The judges I talked to swore they tasted different. I bottled them at the exact same time, same keg, etc.A friend did that, entered the same beer as a Dortmunder and German Pils, both medaled.
What happens? In my world: we bought a house, filled the garage with a Brew Magic and a huge stainless sink, filled the freezer with hops, filled the basement with supplies, keezers, fermentation chambers, and grains, and generally encourage each other to brew our little hearts out.
There's no system of checks and balances. It's getting out of hand!

Ha! out of hand? or Perfect?

1)Thoughts? Too expensive for a couple of Rubbermaids?
2) Is there any issue with using these plastic coolers for brewing? (BPA, phthalates?)
*I saw this on Rubbermaid's site "Our coolers are not tested for use with hot liquids. We do not suggest using our coolers for home brewing purposes or as mash turns."
