Holy smokes. So I thought I'd try to start studying for the BJCP written in hopes that sometime next year I might retest the tasting portion, and if I do well maybe take the written. I think I got some sticker shock when I realized that to score at the master level, among a multitude of other knowledge you must have, you also have to know OG, FG, IBU, SRM, hop aroma, malt aroma, fermentation aroma, appearance, hop malt and fermentation flavor, mouthfeel, historical significance, a classic example, and differences and similarities of 80 different beer styles.
I... aye yai yai... I'm going to try. But I'm not sure I've got the brain pan for this.
Kudos to Master judges! My hat is off to you!
