+1.  That Kolsch looks fantastic.
Is it bad that I'm jealous of that Kölsch? Haha

somewhat related question: how many 12-oz bottles are needed to be sent into NHC?  I put for 4 slots and need to save enough of those 4 beers now, otherwise they'll probably be gone by March....

Last year it was 2 for the regional and 3 for the finals.

Do not transfer off of the yeast until it has reached terminal gravity.

With WLP565, you shouldn't be surprised if this takes 3-4 weeks, even at 80F.

so uneventful.  what will I complain about?!?   ;D

although I kinda miss watching the numbers go up.  "17 minutes and Seattle is half full!"
If it helps at all, we've had ~800 entrants register today in a very leisurely way.  We expect about 3X that amount total for the competition by the end of the week.  I'm really happy about how well this has gone so far.

Cheers,
Janis

Good to hear, Janis! I gotta admit, it'll be a little weird trying to get used to not panicking about NHC entries. :D But I kinda like it!

Entered several again -  Hoping I did not use up all my luck last year.

Kevin, if you don't get first with any of your beers, I'll be hunting them down and taking them home with me. ;D I still remember your Pale Ale from last year.

Good luck!

If anyone is having trouble with the comp website not remembering your password, please use Firefox or Chrome. IE does not seem to play well with the latest version of the database.

Thanks!

BTW - only 150 entry slots left.

So I didn't want to be that guy that jumped on as soon as the link opened, but... ;D

Same here. I asked for my usual 4 spots - crossing my fingers!  :D

Good luck everybody!

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Starter Timing
« on: January 24, 2014, 08:26:15 AM »
I use a 2 gallon pail with lid and airlock for lager starters or larger starters

That's a really good idea.  I wondered if people with large starters (> 2L) were using really big Erlenmeyer flasks and how they managed that much volume.  Thanks for the idea.
I've also seen people use gallon glass jugs for starters.

Yep. A lot of people around this area dig them out of Ripple Glass for free. (Ripple Glass is Boulevard's glass recycling program for KC.)

Equipment and Software / Re: Keg art?

Good idea, but the farthest I've gone is colored ribbon tied around the handles. All our club kegs for NHC club night had bright green ribbon. They were very easy to spot in the crowd while everyone was straining to read the paper labels.

That's a great idea for NHC. I'll have to grab some obnoxious ribbon from Hobby Lobby come June for that same purpose.

As in corny kegs? I use moustache or peace sign duct tape around the top of the keg, at the seam weld. I picked this up from some friends in the Quad Cities.

It is helpful for when I take beer to a homebrew event. Not that anyone would, but no one is leaving with my kegs.

I assume if we put in for the lottery that any of us that get chosen will be billed immediately.

I'm not sure that is a good assumption. Anyone want to chime in that knows more?

Bad Assumption, see my post above

Thank you Fred. I think we all owe you a beer!
