If money is the consideration, wouldn't it be more economical to sample the beer with a list of flaws in front of you, figure out what to change in your brewing techniques, and skip the competition?

But what if you don't have a sensitivity to some of those flaws, or you don't realize they're flaws until someone points them out to you?  That's happened to me more than once.  I overlooked things in the beer until someone pointed them out to me.

By the way…batch sparging is for suckers!

Basser, is that you?

what did they buy? apparently nobody told them you can't take it with you. and I'm thinking that the type of folks that think they're going to be plucked up to heaven didn't blow there money on a big, long party. but then what do I know?

I heard an interview with one guy who had spent his life savings buying billboards to warn people.

It's moot at this point, anyway.  It was supposed to have started last night at 11 PM PDT with a massive earthquake in New Zealand.  That didn't happen.

I wish I knew there was a NB discount a few days ago. I could have saved 9 bucks.
Dammit!!!  I forgot, my order arrived yesterday.  Next time maybe I'll remember.

I ordered a new burner from them and just used the discount for the first time.  5% IIRC.

I was lucky enough to get it in the can.

Nononononono....I WILL NOT make the comment....;)

Sounds delicious!  You're a lucky guy, Phil.

Having never entered a competition, can you enter the same beer (different bottles) in multiple categories?  Seems like one that wouldn't do well in one could do well in another.  I would expect that marginal beers wouldn't do well in either since they may not be clearly adhering to the style guidelines but can it be done?

Yeah, that's almost always allowed.

I heard on the radio that wholesale prices are down 22%

How about down $.22? At least that's what it is for wholesale gasoline.

That makes a lot more sense.  I was listening to the radio in the other room as I was kneading bread and obviously misheard.

Sean, I think that at 12% it would be fine.  I don't think I'd go beyond that, though.

Time warp!!!!

This beer turned out awesome. It was damn near undrinkable a year ago. Got the courage to try it again tonight and - whoa!!! One of the best Old Ales I ever tasted. The brett in the WY strain is perfectly balanced. Really nice cherry pie tartness coming through. I brewed a side batch with all US-05, and while it is pretty good it does not compare to the complexity of the WY strain. Gonna have to brew this one again - maybe barrel age it!

You've got my address, right?  ;)

BTW, did you know that Old Crusty is the nickname for Rogue's BW?

Introducing....the dual chamber Slurpee!

Nope, they haven't.  I spoke with him about a week ago and he had been having some family things to deal with.  He said he was working on them and I hope to have them posted soon.

Wednesday's birthday brewday pushed to today. Just mashed in on a 10g batch of SSoS.  8)

Happy belated b'day, man!

Well, the brewer at our local Rogue drove over to the brewery in Newport to pick up some Mt. Hood, so it looks like I'll be brewing a batch of Rye IPA at the Rogue here.  If you're in the Eugene area, it should be on tap in a few weeks.

that's way cool - what size batch are you doing?

20 gal.  Rogue bought a tricked out B3 system just for our club's use.  They also supply the ingredients.  Nice people!
