Yesterday I picked up another sack of Golden Promise. When I got it home and dumped it in my storage bin I noticed it said Finest Pale Ale. I emailed my guy and he said they changed the labeling but it shows GP on the sticker. Anyone else see this yet, or is it a mislable?

I found the biggest difference between 60min and FWH in my helles. I might agree with Denny on it having similar perceived bitterness to a later boil addition, maybe 30-20 min, but not the same flavor. In a really delicate beer, compare a small 60 min bittering to the same amount at FWH. To me the FWH will be a smoother bitterness with a little less flavor, or more rounded flavor. Less aroma too. If you dont think early boil hops contribute aroma, try to eliminate hop aroma and you'll see that they do. But that another story

Can you create melanoidins without changing flavor?

No brewing, but its packaging weekend. I have to cork n cage 15 gallons of sour beer, bottle my challenge beer, and keg two pale ales.

CaCl for malt fwd, CaSO4 for hop forward. MgSO4 and NaCl if I brew with DI/RO water, which I use in the winter for lagers because my well tends to get a smidge cloudy.

I've been mashing my pale German lagers at 5.5 ph.  I use 10% phosphoric on them. I suppose the hoppier ones would be ok with lactic, but if it doesn't matter and you have both...

I use Brewers Friend so I don't know martins profiles. My water for this beer will be 4.5 gallons DI in the mash with 4g CaSo4, 1g MgSo4, .25g NaCl, and 18ml 10% phosphoric.  5.5 gallons sparge with same salts but no acid needed.


Did someone or an animal sneeze, spit, defecate in the beer? Did you dry raw chicken it? I think under normal basic (very basic) sanitation practices, all well be good.

Edit - not trying to be a jerk. Just being funny while assisting. I like Justin questions!
Oh boy, there is a thing called "Justin questions" now?
I asked my wife if I could buy a new truck today and she said "heh heh, Justin". I didn't know what that meant, but its becoming clear.

Good stuff guys. No more than 3 makes perfect sense on that level. I also agree with no pushing beers that aren't medal worthy. In home brew comps, especially smaller ones, that's less of a worry since the public won't be shopping for that beer just because it got a medal. In pro comps you do have to consider the integrity of the competition and what it stands for. I could see some remote circumstances where 4 might get pushed and I wouldn't freak out because of it. You could have a couple beers tied for 3rd and just push them to get a second opinion.

The question is how many tables... if it's a flight of 180 with ten tables, are you wanting to do a 30-40 beer mini bos? Probably not

Just for kicks I converted my current pale ales from grams to ounces to see where I'm at. 13+ ounces in 6 gallon batch. Seems reasonable. I'm dry hopping these just for fun. Normally I don't

How about Imperial Session?

Just a couple questions. I thought about PMing Steve, but decided that more folks might gain knowledge if it was out in the open. So, I've judged with the qued method before and I understand how it works up to the point of mini bos. Since there are multiple teams judging the flight, how do they determine which beers move on to mini bos. I vaguely recall that our table moved a couple on to mini bos. But I was thinking that it was possible and maybe likely that other tablee saw much better beers. Then I thought, what if each table moved 3 beers onto mini bos, well its possible 1st 2nd and 3rd could all come from one table. But if they only moved two on, the 3rd place beer could get dropper from mini bos. It crossed my mind that maybe they use scores to pick for instance the top 6. But how do you know that every table scores similarly?

So, here ya go someone. How does BJCP Qued Judging work when it comes to mini bos?

I just tapped the Munich Helles. I think its about as good as I'll ever be able to do. At this point it would just be small things more or less beyond my control, like malt or hop quality etc. I'm going to try to beergun a couple samples to bring to Seattle and maybe get Steve and the guys to take a look.

I think you might freak some folks out if you got on the plane wearing a chute

 ;D  TSA might be curious also.
You'll be fine. Here's the trick. When they ask you a question just repeat the question and then ask the same question of them. Like this, "Why am I wearing a parachute? Why are YOU wearing a parachute?" Works every time
