Homebrew Competitions / Re: Competition changes your category

Yeah I won't be entering this competition next year. What's scary is to quote the coordinator "It gets judged the same no matter what category it is in". Uh, no, how it gets judged is highly dpendant on the style guidelines for that category. We've traded emails back and forth, but that this point I'm going to demand the original category, then contact BJCP to file a complaint.

*sigh*
if it is not in the category you want it, then they owe you $8 IMO.
I agree. And I'm really speechless about this.

well, at least SOMETHING good came out of all this!
;)

Entrants are responsible for putting the beer into the category they desire.  Although somebody may suggest a different category, it should only be a suggestion.

exactly.  It's his entry and he put it where he wanted it.  Now, have I had some who put a beer in the wrong spot and didn't understand it, as it was their first competition?  sure.  I called them and asked if I could move their coconut porter from 12B to 21A.  Once they understood, they were happy I contacted them.

Ross isn't a noob.  IMO an organizer should respect his wishes or refund his money.

I chose two other philly prime New York and ohio

if those three were full, and you missed out on the competition while there were spots available in, say, Saint Louis, would you be upset?  Just making sure...

side note:  just once I'd like to see someone come out with a "The moderately incomplete guide..." or even "The Everything the publisher didn't make me trim..." book.    Sort of like a Lagunitas "Unlimited Release"   ;D

I assume you are referring to Prost's?  I had only a small taste and thought it was very good.
wish there were more good dark lager out there.  I'm about to send majorvices a PM/offer some shipping $$.   ;)

Actually she didn't care for Prost's as much as Grimm Brothers but I don't take too much stock in that. I thought both were great. I have really been enjoying Grimm Brothers lately. I believe their Alt won gold at GABF last year?

I like Little Red Cap too; very good beer.  It's won 2-3 GABF medals.  FWIW, the Dunkel in question, Fearless Youth, is also very tasty and has won at least one that I know of.

If you haven't had it pick up Ayinger Altbairisch Dunkel.  You can thank me later. 

+1.  I haven't had that in a quite a while. I remember it being really tasty.

My wife really likes a dunkel brewed here locally so I have tried a couple of examples lately. I will give it a go. Thanks! I have found myself moving away from hoppy, American craft beer which I never thought would happen. The German in me must be coming out as I get older ;)

Used it last year and liked the results on a few beers. Have it in a Helles now.


Jeff likes it; I'm sold.  Adding to cart...

« on: February 05, 2015, 09:35:08 AM »
I wish.  Looks like the entrants will live without my terrible handwriting this year.  I've got a year to get my complaints ready when I don't make it through the 2016 lottery.   ;D

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: Hard Cider Taste Like Wine! Help
« on: February 04, 2015, 06:12:01 AM »
While I enjoy a really good bone dry champagne because it can still be very aromatic and have great taste, I think Apple juice fermented bone dry will be very blah.


assuming OP used some bland store-bought juice, sure, but to truly help we need to know what their goal was anyway.  I think it'll be clear to them from the responses that nothing necessarily "went wrong" but what kind of product were they hoping to produce/hoping to turn this into now?

Hi all,

The glitch was fixed early this morning.  One thing to keep in mind is that you can log in to the application form 24/7, all week to edit your application.  Editing must be done by the end of February 8th.

Cheers,
Janis

Fixed too fast IMO.  We were not given nearly enough time to complain!

I didn't pay attention to the Bud commercial since I was brewing a crisp, clean Kolsch during the game so I can party with my friends.

I agree, death knell for "Bud" .

But did you brew it "The Hard Way"...?  (from a control room?)   ;D
