Looks a little thinner, too. Brewing is good exercise.

There's nothing wrong with gaming the system by entering a category that doesn't get as many entries and thereby increasing your chances. We have very few cider makers in Florida so those categories have better odds, but we have a lot of mead makers, so the chances may be better in Dark Lagers than Meads.
Obviously there are many more entries in beer than in mead and cider. Our statewide circuit applies the same number of points for each category winner, but mead and cider best of show only picks up one point as opposed to 3,2,1 for the three beer best of show winners.
Didn't Dennis Pierson take HOTY once? If not, he came close and IIRC only with ciders?
I moved from Ohio to Florida. I don't see any problem here. Get a dang fridge.Sadly no, the all grain bug has bitten me but alas I have no chest freezer and only one fermentation chamber.
The problem here is that you live in Florida. You need to move to Ohio where you can freeze your ass off while brewing, but a ferm chamber can be considered "outside" with the help from a ferm blanket lol
I'd fly across the country just to go to Tornado in San Fran right now. I've been to the San Diego location, close, but no cigar.
Which is probably why you like Monschof better than Kostritzer.A lot of decent Black lagers out there, but some get roasty and not to style...I like a nice clean black lager, not a Baltic Porter light.
I will admit that mine, while not a porter is still just a touch more "chocolatey" than is probably appropriate to style.
Also my favorite thus far... When making stew, you add the peas at flameout.
This cracked me up
