Aren't you effectively "punishing" more people who aren't able to submit if you don't have a cap?

Yes, and by having an entry deadline, you are also "punishing" those that procrastinate.  And by giving out medals, you are "punishing" those that didn't brew good enough beer.  And by allowing entrants to submit subpar beer, you are "punishing" the judges that have to drink them.

Nice straw man argument.

Link to the FB app where you vote:



There are three types of treatment systems that will remove sulfate from your drinking water: reverse osmosis, distillation, or ion exchange. Carbon filters, water softeners and sediment filters will not remove sulfate.

We fill the kettle with hops, then we "dry malt" the beer after fermentation.

Is it blood? I think you need to pull a Dexter and use one of those lights to see if it glows.

Sorry I missed it.  Kanapaha is a gorgeous place for anything. Glad to see turnout was so good, I'll make it out next year.

Yeah the raspberry looks great.  I was eyeing that before I found out about the Netduino. So many possibilities.

I started with Mr Beer.  Really enjoyed it.

I haven't felt like programming ANYTHING outside of work for years. I guess I finally found something worth doing that helps out my hobby. Hopefully I can contribute something to the community at the same time.

Found some code for reading pH today:

Adding that to my queue of things to learn. Just got the temp sensor this morning so I can start doing something tonight.

I recently made a pale ale with citra and centennial (sorta like cascade) and it came out like grapefruit juice.  :o But then I may have overdone it with late additions and dry hop amounts for a pale ale.

Red Rye IPA. Noob so it's my first batch. All went well. Just waiting to see if we get fermentation.

First beer, first post, good luck and welcome to the club!
