Hi Denny,

I sure missed you in Philadelphia!  I think there is a clause in my contract about not climbing ladders or driving big trucks while the National Homebrew Competition is not yet completed.

Cheers,
Janis

:)

Wish I could have been there, Janis!

Wow - the competition must have been stiff in Belgian Strong. My beer got a 46.3 but did not place.

No score on one of my entries so I am not sure what went on there.

Did you already get your scoresheets back?  Or are you viewing your scores on the website?

46.3 and not place?  Wow indeed!
Hi All,

Here is an update on the score sheets.  The truck has not arrived in Boulder yet.  As long as that is the case, it pushes out the expected turn around for the score sheets, medals, and prizes.  Sorry for the delay.

Cheers,
Janis

Geez, Janis, you mea you didn't drive it yourself?

This is just crazy to me. You're some kind of anomaly, Denny.

Really?  It doesn't work for you?

McMenamin's posted this pic on FB of brewers from Brew Dog in Scotland floating down the Willamette River, brewing on a raft.  If you look closely, you can see the raft is floating on McM's kegs!

Thanks.

I should be able to find some time. You can also email me if you feel you need my input on a topic.

The NHC had become big. I wonder how much larger it can get.

4000 next year is what they are working on.

Yeah, that's kinda scary....

I guess I'll follow this thread around the corner it's taking...

I have been brewing about a year.  Only once have I used dry yeast (S-05), and as in everything else I do, I researched rehydrating exhaustively and followed what I learned to the best of my ability.  It was a bust.  Nothing.  I ran down to the LHBS and picked up some wet yeast and off it went.

I have been hearing about a peachy flavor that one can get if one ferments with S-05 at low temps, so I want to try again on an IPA I will be brewing this weekend.  I am seriously thinking about following some of the advice I read which is to just pour 2 packets straight into the wort without rehydrating at all. 

Thoughts?

I never rehydrate 05 and I get great performance from a single pack on beers even in the 70s gravity range.

Drew mentioned that he's going to talk to Gary well in advance next year so we can have a place where meetups from various forums can happen.

If it was me, I'd split the CO2 line.  AAMOF, that's what I do.  I have a 5 way manifold with an on/off valve and check valve on each output.

In my case, it would be a moot point since my beer names are like "#424 German Pils".

I'm not nearly to that many batches, but I still get a bit lazy with naming (even though my fiance inspires some pretty great names). I tend to name a recipe that I've been working on for a while (e.g. Pants on Fire, Complete Twaddle, etc) but most of my batches just end up as "Nelson Saison", "Amarillo Saison", "Dry Stout", etc.

There's always the random beer name generator...

At any rate, a judge should not be experiencing a 20 or less at the June final round, especially if the beer scored 30+ in April.

The first time I judged final round was in Orlando with you.  We judged bocks.  I recall both of us saying how disappointed we were in the overall quality of them.

Maybe there's no place on the entry form for the name?  I dunno....
Well, then why not?

Good question.  In my case, it would be a moot point since my beer names are like "#424 German Pils".
