The magazine comes out every two months, so I'd imagine that you're first issue would be the March/April one. I think that comes out in February.

Tried boiling it first for one batch. Same thing, going to get the water tested when I move this summer. Haven't ever noticed that plastic burp tasted with my house brown or stout so that's what I will brew until thenJust throw a crush Camden tablet into the strike water and/or boil water. It'll cover your butt.
It's probably the coolest thing about flow controls. Well, that and switch between saisons and ESBs on the same beer line.Sometimes you have to pour two or three pints to be certain!And fill a few growlers without adjusting the tank pressure.
Scanning and emailing judging sheets is probably the easiest option available although for a large comp you need a fast scanner and somebody, or preferably multiple people, who has a good process in place to sort forms before they go in the scanner and afterwards as the files are being created. It's faster and cheaper to send forms by email with the cost of postage these days.
This is what we do for Malt Madness. Our competition is around 500 entries and we have 2-3 to people to scan score sheets. We used to stuff envelopes and have them available for people to pick up the day of the competition and send the rest out by mail, but we switched to scanning to save on postage.
I wasn't at all implying that running a comp is a one man job.
Setting up a central data gathering solution? Yes.
The trouble is just that many organizers don't think ahead about the process.
Oh yeah, as a follow up: I cranked it down to 0.039" gap. Doing no-sparge for a 5 gallon batch of ESB yielded 70%. I'll take it.
Wonder what I'll get with a single batch sparge? Hmm.
I'll bet on 80+ %.
Ouch, I think my questions are misunderstood. I insinuated nothing, just asked a question. The interviewer on the BN asked the beer brewer/meadmaker if he switched over to entering just meads cause it was easier to win mead medals than it was to win beer medals or something along those lines. I was trying to find out if it is a prevalent attitude among judges.
Here is the link, maybe I just took it wrong, time stamp 44:50-about 47:00
If you can make amazing mead I promise people don't think it is easy.
