Cascade about two foot, Willamette and Centennial are about a foot. Giving them a few more days then hacking them down. I don't trust that spring is here just yet.

Crystal hater!!!Edit: I looked at the recipe and that's too much crystal. I'd ditch the black malt too.You need fair amount of crystal and high mash temp for 4.4%abv beer.
See, this is why "winky" emoticons let people know your joking around.
Just to clarify, I'm asking about the brew date to the judging date.Are you bottle conditioning?
I enjoyed the BCHL. I thought it was quite piney, like it had a lot of Chinook or maybe Simcoe (sorry I never looked up the actual hops that might have been used). I'd buy it again. Maybe you just don't like piney hops?You're probably right. But there's still a heaviness issue. It shouldn't take determination to finish 12 ounces of beer. I dont have to give SNPA any thought, other than "where'd that beer go?" And its not the 7%... I have no problem with Bigfoot... Personally I think its got way too much crystal.
