#400 Batch 400
Denny, I just brewed one very similar, but my OG was 1.091. I see yours was 1.103, what did 3787 get it down to?

#400 Batch 400
Good speakers make all the difference with car audio. I put new speakers in my Passat and left the original stereo and it made a TON of difference in sound quality.
I also always use some brisket point in my hot dogs (mostly pork, like any superior quality hot dog should be, but I do add in about 15-20% brisket)
But, regarding southern tier, once they start going off the beaten path, it gets too sweet and usually not drinkable.
I think a few unmarked "classic style" test beers should be placed in every comp, just to see how well the judges are doing. The results of those beers should be given to every participant as a basis for how their beers were judged. If a judge consistently gives those classic styles low scores, then he/she should be moved to a different style or asked not to judge for a while.
I pretty much do the same thing although I use a piece of a packing styrofoam sheet taped to the side like a little pocket, then I slide the probe into it so it's in contact with the carboy. Saves wrapping the whole carbooy in tape.
Entering the most beers possible is not the purpose of the competition. At least, not as I understand it.
Aren't you effectively "punishing" more people who aren't able to submit if you don't have a cap?
