Ok, I'll keep the triangle test. Each of you will receive a total of three bottles, randomly selected, of unique combinations of bottles marked with circles, triangles, squares, or stars.
I sent you my address yesterday.  I will most likely sit down with another judge and fill out bjcp score sheets on them.  I will be happy to send you some of my beer back in return.

also Tom, Nateo this had me thinking about sending beer on occasion to 3 or 4 of us, just to get good documented feedback.  better than having friends say oh that is good, and less hassle than sending to comps.  I am not talking often, but i could see myself forwarding 6-12 a year.  I think this would be worthwhile especially since I brew off style some and make my own specialty grains.  Kind of like a local brew club but i think the feedback would be better.  Interested?

Yeah I'd be interested in that. I only wanted a large number of people and triangle tasting on this trial, since it's basically a theological inquiry, so I wanted to get the best data possible.

I've only entered one local competition, but I didn't find it particularly helpful, except that it convinced me to cut back the amount of coriander I was using in my wits. The local brew club is good for general feedback, but I haven't found it good for detailed analysis. It's interesting to see which beers disappear quickly, and which ones are left over at the end of the meeting.

OK, I've got addresses from everyone except Ron, you slacker. I'll have my address on the return label on the boxes I send out, for those of you who've indicated you'll be sending beer back.

One other thing I think would be helpful on the feedback is if you could write a bit about your bias going into the study (in what ways you expect the beers to differ, if any). Feel free to play "guess the recipe" too if you want.

Once I've received all the feedback, I'll post my detailed brewing notes and recipes. I'll try to break the comments down by frequency of descriptors and phrases, similar to this: http://traffic.libsyn.com/basicbrewing/KYBelgianYeastExperiment.pdf

I know at least one of you are going to be gone for the NHC, so I'll wait to ship the beer out until afterwards, so I'm tentatively shooting for a June 25th delivery, maybe a little after. Please let me know if that doesn't work for any of you. 

As for the results, feel free to email them to my gmail account, or send as a private message on here.

Got swamped with work and didn't get a chance to mail them out last week. Should be able to run into town within the next few days, so some of you could see them by the end of the week.

Didn't make it to UPS yesterday, but got there today. Looks like most of them will arrive on Monday, maybe Tuesday.

One of the things I hate about homebrew club tastings is you can't get very detailed, or even very honest feedback. I expect you guys to be honest, brutally if necessary. I prefer constructive criticism, but sugar-coating won't help me make better beer. Unless it's some sort of Skittle-brau.

I think I've contacted all of you who were interested in sending beers back my way, but if I missed you, just use my return address on the packages. It's a commercial address so that should save a little bit on shipping.

Looking forward to the beers, and will be bottling some of mine this weekend to send back to you....

Just to clarify, I may have missed this point, but what BJCP category are these Pilsners? German or Bohemian? or CAP?

I don't think they're a great example of any particular BJCP style. I hesitate to call it something because I don't want to unduly influence your expectations. I'm most interested in comparing and contrasting the different mashing methods, and not in a score, or brewing to style, per se. Do you guys think a defined style is necessary for what we're doing?

I'm cool with that... No style necessary... I'll just compare the samples to each other...
