Well it didn't get that high. But the foam "Creson?" wen't up and down in about four hours, not two to three days, and now i'm seeing no signs of active fermentation.

I just realized that i spent about 15 minutes swirling the carboy after pitching, and that is a new practice for me. Could all this just be me experiencing how the yeast works with well aerated wort?

Maybe, but it's more likely due to a high fermentation temp.

Unless the temp got over 115 F, you didn't kill the yeast.

So is it a possibility we will transition to using these check sheets in regular comps in the future?

That's up to the organizer of the comp.  Personally, I'm not sure that's a good idea for most comps.  But as long as it didn't discourage judges from writing comments, also, they might be OK.

I wonder if the extra 30 mins bring out more of the coarseness, to the point of being this unpleasant.

Not that I've ever noticed.  Also, boiling for 90 min. increases the utilization by VERY little.

What I like about the checklist is that it provides a common vocabulary for all the judges, so it eliminates the vagaries of terminology.  I once read a scoresheet where the judge described a beer as "tanky".  WTF does that mean?  The checkboxes eliminate that, or at least cut it down since the judge would have to write that kind of comment separately.

So, what about your cleaning process?  You can't sanitize something that isn't clean.

Kinda like this....

The scoresheets were not my favorite.  I found them difficult to provide decent feedback, so by the end I was writing on them anyway.  They definitely did not speed up judging, we were still running 15 minutes or so a beer.

Really?  I find that for me and the people I judge with it's more like 6-7 min. per beer.

They were slightly different, but you'll get them. Second round uses the checklist scoresheet with fewer written comments.

Kind of bummed to see that >:(  Just like a lot of us, I enter comps for feedback and dialing in brewing processes/recipes.  Pretty hard to do unless you receive written comments!!

The theory is that you got feedback in the first round.  We used to use the same scoresheets for the second round, but it became impossible to do all the judging in the time we had when we used the traditional sheets.  That said, I still write lots of comments on the checkbox sheets.

I obviously didn't pick it up in Philly, but I've been fighting a similar cold for about 3 weeks.

Yeah, I've made some changes today that should help

Exbeeriments sound like fun, I joined the forum but not sure how to chip in yet.

Hopefully we'll have some suggestions up there soon.

Oh good. I would think they will be greatly overpowered by the citra. And a 5 minute addition should be more aroma than flavor.

I'd guess it would be the other way around.
