Also bear in mind there's data out there showing that 67°C (152.6°F) is the optimum for attenuation in a single-infusion mash. Personally, I'll mash average-gravity beers at 70°C and small beers at 72°C when I'm trying to rein in the attenuation.

most my experiences have been great with uber. I've always had nicer cars using uber than a taxi. It's been cheaper than a taxi as well...
Deserving of mid-30s in competition, with small dings in part to the yeast that some folks might not care for (I don't mind it at all) and very low / non-existent coriander (which I'm also fine with). Sean, if you like it like this, don't change it, it's great! Otherwise maybe just double your coriander, and you're good to go, honestly.
Yes! There will be homebrew. Its just that we are seeing another case of alcohol law dumb-assery.
I've not been to NHC yet. Are the commercial beers for sale? Or do the breweries just give it away?
Glad you liked it, but you got the last bottle of the batch. It's definitely getting brewed again in the next couple of months, though, and I'll hook you up with a couple. It's all Amarillo, so when it's fresh, it's practically orange juice to me. Citrus bomb with just the right balance of light caramel sweetness with citrusy bitterness. It's right around 6% ABV. I just got my medal in the mail for it from a local comp back in March (the AHA medals are notoriously slow lol). I'll message you the recipe if you're interested. It was a complete experiment since I took a standard amber recipe and changed up some of the malts (e.g. went with Carastan instead of C40 and Special B instead of C120).
Between the cost of the conference, hotel room, meals, and time away from the family....
That's interesting. Obviously everybody knows about the altitude difference, but the effects on carbing can get overlooked. Probably no coincidence the heavy hitters there prefer not to be any higher up.
Cool, good to know. I assume Colorado breweries that bottle must take that into account, right?
I bottled several beers from the keg and none were gushers here, so I wonder about the altitude differences, like you mentioned ?
