most competitions are registered with the AHA.

Comps are registered with the BJCP, not the AHA.

Question:  About what % of entries come from non-AHA members?

I'm not 100% certain, but I think you have to be an AHA member to enter.

Well, I'll be damned...logging in as a mere mortal, I have the same "go down" problem.  I've reported it to the AHA IT folks.

Welcome to the forum.  Have you been brewing long?   ;D

Do ya like my new photo, Carl?

I think both Gordon and JZ have decided that they're done entering.

We're definitely looking for a solution.  I'll pass along the 4 entry limit idea.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Wee Heavy mash temp
« on: March 05, 2012, 09:19:17 AM »
I brewed one on Saturday and caramelized some wort.  I actually cooked it down to where it was boiling like a true syrup, in fact I think the water was all gone by the end.  Does anyone go this far?  I smelled it to be sure I wasn't burning it, and I took it off and added right after it quit steaming.  it really bubbles up a lot like when you make caramel candy.

Sounds just right to me!

Pitch at 65 and let rise to 68 is a good practice with chico yeast. And again, beer temp, not ambient air temp.

That's the way I remember it.  I recall thinking that they fermented it warmer than I do, but only by a few degrees.

or go the mcab route and have other contests act as qualifiers.

That's been discussed and unanimously voted down by the Governing Committee as being to exclusive.

wow, it would seem likely there's a lot of unmet demand here (I didn't enter but considered it - definitely next year!), but I wonder how much more growth can they have and still finish the final round in 1 day?!?

hopefully I can at least steward in Seattle and watch the Masters at work.   8)  Can't wait!

That's definitely a concern.   People also ask about increasing the number of first round judging centers, but we can barely find enough judges for the number that exist now.

When I have time in the next couple days, I'll set up a non admin account and see what happens.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: SNPA in a can
« on: March 04, 2012, 10:44:13 AM »
I've had both the PA and Torpedo in cans.  There is no difference in carbonation or flavor between cans and bottles.  SN does "can condition" the beer, just like the bottle condition.  when I was there they were doing extensive testing of cans to see which ones could withstand the pressure of being stacked before they had the additional pressure of being can conditioned to help stiffen them up.

I tend to stick with nobles like Hallertauer, Saaz, Tettnang, and Spalt.

Kegging and Bottling / Re: Natural Carbonating in a Keg
« on: March 03, 2012, 11:46:27 AM »
Kinda OT, but I have a nit to pick with the phrase "natural carbonation".  There's nothing any more natural about priming a keg than there is about using a CO2 tank.  At least IMO.  I'd personally like to see people stick with the more accurate terms "priming" and "force carbonating".  End of lecture....:)

But if it's the forum software change that caused it, why am I not having any problems?  Feels like we're going around in circles....
