While it is nice to get a good score on a beer, receiving quality, constructive feedback is the real prize...

Thanks Ron.  This beer is the best domestic example (including commercial examples) of a German pilsner I have ever had.  The recipe and process really do stand up.

Our prayers are with you, brother.  That is horrible!  I lived in the Boulder-Longmont area for five years back in the late 70's - early 80's and though it was in a drought then, we never saw anything like this.

Indeed it does!  What beer did you pair it with?

Ron, Would you be so kind as to post your recipe for that wonderful German pilsner you made earlier this year?  I bragged on it a bit earlier in the thread.

I have one of these that I got from my parents years ago.  It works very well.  They are a bit pricey though.

Lettuce and spinach have been on the table for a few weeks now.  Radishes are about done.  Starting to get beets in (roasted a few this weekend) and got our first tomatoes (Early Girls) and peppers (bells and poblanos) this weekend.  Jalapenos are coming on strong and ready to pick.  Lemon peppers (yellow thai) are coming on , but not turning yet.  Peas are starting to pod.  Corn is about chest high.  Eggplant is flowering, cucumbers seem to be a little slow, but the plants are healthy.  Spaghetti, yellow, and zuchini squash are looking good as well.  The celery is fine too.  The okra and string bean plants are about 6 - 12 inches tall.

Just to give another data point.  I use a plate chiller for both 5 and 10 gallon batches.  I used to use an IC, but I have found the plate chiller does a better job of cooing the wort to ale pitching temps, quicker.  I use well water for the chilling counter flow.  It stays cold year round (300 ft. deep).  If your tap water warms during the summer an IC with an ice bath may work better.  YMMV

It's when it has the flavor and aroma of added fruit. A beer entered as a fruit beer but having no fruit character won't get very far, regardless of how much fruit was added.

Lagering on the primary yeast gives good results too.  This is something that I just started doing.  I made a  Vienna lager with WLP830 some time ago, lagered it for about six weeks on the primary yeast and it was crystal clear going into the keg.  The flavor is super clean as well.

I agree with Dave.  The correct water chemistry definitely influences your results positively. :)  With all beers.
