won't let me edit my entries to enter the recipes yet, but I didn't wanna type all that right now anyway.  Will check back next week.   8)

I want to work less, make more money and have nearly zero responsibility. Opening a commercial brewery sounds like the opposite of that.

I finally have an answer to this tiring question, thanks.   ;D

Governor signed bill yesterday.  It'll be weeks before it gets published and becomes official, but very soon I'll have to find some different laws to break.  8)

7400 entries and 712 IPAs in the book, as we all glare at Chicago.  ;)

a lot of great brewers through to the Finals so far.  Some Ninkasi tiebreakers seem likely.  Somewhere around 150 people so far with multiple entries advancing, but haven't found anyone with more than 3.

another <700 region and another <600 region has us on pace for exactly 8000 entries.

Startlingly low cider numbers from Seattle, to me at least.  Maybe they all shipped to Denver to avoid each other?   ;)

mead numbers are low everywhere, with melomel accounting for almost half.  maybe St Paul will prop the numbers up a bit.

Wide shot - Two 3-tier plant stands with grow lights, and DIY germination mats up on top.

really nice setup.  Something similar took over my dining room and portions of my basement during the neverending winter of 2013...I'll probably do it again next year.

I'm getting tired of people telling me I'll brew them a batch if they buy me the "ingredients". I say make your own effing beer!

Follow that with a simple, "I'm not sure you realize how much time and effort was put into what you are drinking right now."

that's my response to:  *childish squinty grossed-out Mr Yuck face*  "ugh this one is terrible!"

we are in Carrie Nation country, so maybe this is just a Kansas thing, but....

*incredulous look*  "Is that LEGAL?!?" is by FAR the most common reaction I get.

with 7 official, now on pace for 838 IPAs.   ;D

I guess everyone really is making IPAs right now, not just the pros.

I judged in Zainesville (which was the largest per the results posted thus far) and I didn't have particularly big flights or feel rushed... I realize some of the other sites may have had a less judges per entry turn out etc... but I only had a flight of 9 in Pilsners and 8 in Belgian Strong Ales.

average is improving; currently if it holds we'd be at 8079 entries.  That'd be a new record, though well short of 9000.

sometimes there is no great example of the style entered.
I recall seeing it in GABF several times, often with American interpretations of English styles.

I had this happen last year, and unfortunately I found out too late that the coversheet with the "3" in Place Awarded was right.'re talking the bottom of the three big boxes with "2" written in for "Place Awarded", right?  NOT a coversheet with "Original Position in Flight: __2__ of __(whatever)__ "

just checking to be sure.

If so, I'd contact Janis and the site director.  I suspect each has copies of the flight summary sheets.
Personally, I think when you receive a coversheet that says you advance, you should advance, but I don't make the rules. 
Good luck.
