This has been fun to follow. I might try to participate in this at some point. I don't think my beers are up to par with the rest of ya but maybe one day...I'm glad I joined in this time around. I don't have a local club, so this forum is what I think of as my homebrew club. It's nice to share some brews with someone other than my buddies who think that everything I make is good enough to go pro with.
Most of my beers are one-offs or experimental, and would be several iterations away from being NHC caliber if I decided to hone them in. I still felt comfortable with this crowd in sharing. I expected friendly feedback, and that's what I got. I also got a great suggestion from Jim to oak my Gewurztraminer Saison, which I will be trying very soon. Basically, it's exactly what I'd expect from a friendly local club.
