Goal: To determine whether triple-decoction or no-sparge single infusion provides better results in a pale, delicate, malt-centric beer for an average homebrewer.
Who I need: Eight people to drink beer and provide feedback. I'm looking for a mix of certified judges and non-judges who have a good palate.
What you'll get: Three beers each, one of which may or may not be a duplicate of either beer, to be randomly determined.
After tasting: Provide feedback following a standard BJCP-style scoring form format for each beer.
What I ask for: I will keep all feedback anonymous (unless you want credit), but I will upload the results on my crappy blog I never update. It would also be cool if you wanted to fill the bottles back up with some of your own homebrew and mail them back.
I want to keep the recipe details a secret until after the tastings, after which I'll make my detailed brewing notes public. I plan on brewing the beers back-to-back sometime late next month, or early in the following.
Please leave any comments, concerns, or heckles below. Thank you.
