Not fair IPA's are always on top because of the sheer number of IPA's in the market.  We should limit the number of IPA's allowed in so a real beer like Tank 7 has a chance to win.

Kinda wondering if you actually did read all 20 pages of this thread

Again, if you want the rules changed then write a letter to the Governing Committee or the Competition Committee.  Few members on those boards are going to read this forum and with over 300 posts even the ones that do aren't going to remember every detail.

Yes, everyone is allowed to have an opinion but if those in the BN Army feel like they are a club then it's a club.  Like was mentioned earlier, the sense of connection I get from the BN is just as valid as any you get from your club and I'm getting tired of trying to justify that to people that just don't like the BN winning or whatever.

Why is everyone so butt hurt over some booing?

Does no one here watch sports? Do winners not get booed all the time? It's par for the course, it is to be expected. I see the BN club like the Yankees; keep on booing and they will just keep on winning.

1.   Not justifying booing in pro sports but those guys make millions for their  performance and homebrewers don't get paid for NHC ribbons and medals.

2.  Butt hurt?  Not sure what to make of that statement.

That will at least do the trick.  This thread is a buzzkill.

I thought this thread was remarkably level-headed and insightful, and I hope the AHA at least considers some of the ideas proposed here.

For the most part this has been level-headed but some just seem to be hating on the BN.  The worst was trying to connect inappropriate comments made by BNers to the BN as a whole.  I know that the person who brought that up said that wasn't the point, but when one mentions the two together that is the effect whether it was intended or not. 

As for the ideas proposed here, I doubt the AHA will consider them unless members write to the Governing Committee or Competition Committee members specifically.  I don't think everyone on those committees is necessarily reading this thread.  I encourage anyone who has a concern to write or email members on those committees.  That's how things get done.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Liquid Yeast > Dry Yeast?

I have not, but I haven't compared it to one made with pale malt instead of Pils, either. I'm sure they would all be good beers, but that 1007 character is something I look for in my alts. It's merely a flavor preference on my part.

If you do that comparison, I think you'll find that 1007 character is pretty much identical to 1056 character.  I use them interchangeably in IPA, APA, etc.  I've also compared pale and pils malts and found virtually no difference in alt.  I've also won comps with alts made with pale malt and 1056.  Try it before you decide.  All that said, I generally make alts with pils and 1007, but more for tradition than flavor.

Do you think Wyeast 2112 Cal Lager would
make a good alt?  I liked the results on an Oktoberfest.

Commercial Beer Reviews / Re: Pilsner Urquell in brown bottles!
« on: June 24, 2015, 11:58:41 AM »
The brown bottles are those lighter brown ones and while it helps I had some skunky ones once.  After pouring hold one of the bottles up and you'll see what I'm talking about.  Almost a greenish brown.  The four pack of PU cans is still the best option.   Usually I just drink it once a year on tap at the local Slavic Festival.  Makes it that much more special.  Trader Joe's Czech Pils is what I drink when I can't find PU cans.

This thread coupled with the audio of the award is about the saddest thing going on in brewing.

So you haven't had a Bud Light Strawberry Lime-a-Rita?

That will at least do the trick.  This thread is a buzzkill.

Yeah, every time we've had multiple winners there's been grumbling starting at year 2.

Face it, repeats are a common occurrence with most of the years of this award - the award was created in 1985 - 1986-1995 it went to the Sonoma Beerocrats, 2001-2006 QUAFF, 2007-2009 St. Paul, 2011-2015 TBN. So out of 30 years of the award 24 times it's gone to a repeating club that's on a long streak.

It seems most people don't know this or choose to ignore it.  If the rules are changed to exclude the BN QUAFF will dominate.  The same problem will exist with the same people complaining about something else.  There will also be a new problem caused by alienating those in the BN.

I was sitting with QUAF(I am not a member of  any club). I did not hear any booing from their section.  Not much cheering.  But no booing for club of the year.  Loud cheering for  every  other medal  and award.

I think that's one reason why Justin specifically singled out QUAFF as being a badass club when he went onstage.

How much booing did the rest of you in attendance hear? I didn't hear a lot; less than some of the previous 4 years. I saw some eyerolls; probably did it myself. I heard some comments. Booing? Sounded like a handful.

Thanks to the Brewing Network one can watch the awards ceremony and decide for herself.  It was streamed live and can be viewed on Livestream on most Smart TV's or any TV with a streaming device such as Roku, Chrome Cast, Fire Stick or Apple TV.  It can also be viewed on mobile devices with the Livestream app or at new.Livestream.com.

Send me a forum message, I'm on the GC, but not on the competition committee.


Thank you Jeff.  Message sent.

Regardless of rules or what Justin says, I doubt I'll write BN Army as my club anymore. It was fun, its not anymore.

Don't let them get you down Jim,  I'm more inclined to list the BN now.
