Yay, I made it with a 3rd place for my American Barleywine.

Congrats...and with 31 entries in the category.  Impressive!  Good luck in the finals.
Thanks, just happy to make it. I can't tell you how many times I've gotten my score sheets back with the mini-BOS marked and no place awarded.

I'm going in a few weeks to visit my brother. I want to check out Wicked Weed and Sierra Nevada for sure.

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: First Infection in 5 Years

I had two batches go bad this last fall. They were from the same yeast cake from an earlier batch. They had a bad, phenolic taste and they must have gotten contaminated. This was the first time I had this happen in 10 years. So, I broke down and cleaned my equipment really good.  Hopefully, you find the culprit.

If you want good long-haired country music from that era, a far better choice is "The Gilded Palace of Sin" by the Flying Burrito Brothers. Heck, "Workingman's Dead" or "American Beauty" are better country than the Eagles.

Yeah, Gram Parsons was pretty cool, and I love the Dead. 

There's a pretty good live album of the Flying Burrito Brothers at the Avalon Ballroom in 1969 when they opened for the Dead.
Oh yes, I love me some Flying Burrito Brothers.

I played in a band called "Surrounded by Jeds" in the early nineties. People shortened it to "The Jeds" and the three of us went by the names of Danny Jed, Tommy Jed, and Johnny Jed.

Extract/Partial Mash Brewing / Re: My beer taste watery HELP!!
« on: February 27, 2017, 05:34:33 PM »
Shoot for 1.060 instead of 1.040.  That might do the trick.

Also, steep or mini-mash in the 150s F for just 30-40 minutes instead of 60 minutes.  This will leave more unfermentable dextrins in the wort compared to a full hour mash.  If you were steeping in the 140s for a full hour, the enzymes from the pilsner malt will be doing cartwheels and jumping jacks in your wort.
This^^. Most beer at 1.040 is going to taste thin.

This is the first sour I've brewed that did this. 100% Pils, Wyeast Roselare, and tart cherry concentrate. Finished at 1.010 with my FG samples 2 months apart. 1.010 still freaks me out so I kegged it. Gentle acidity, cherry flavor balanced with Brett and Belgian fermentation character. Otherwise pretty clean. I'm digging it
That sounds and looks nice. Great head retention for a Sour beer.

I hope Amarillo and Chinook play nice together.


They play really nice IMO. Used them together quite a few times. Not far off the Amarillo/Simcoe thing but yet has its own thing going.
I haven't used Chinook in a couple years and Amarillo is probably my favorite American hop which I use quite a bit. The last couple of years I've been busy trying all the new hop varieties...kinda nice to get back to the classics.

I'm only entering two this year because I don't have a lot to choose from right now. Probably an American Barleywine and German Pils.

does anyone know if you can use glass bottles with a breweries logo embedded in the glass like Sam Adams?  I thought I saved some bottles for the competition but the only ones I have left for certain beers are in sam adams bottles.
They should be fine.

My first batch over 10 years ago tasted like beer and I've been hooked ever since.
