I don't "hope to find" anything.  Just curious.  I doubt anything can be determined conclusively from this.  Also, I posted this in the All Grain subforum since that's how I brew, and I have zero interest in extract beer making (I can't bring myself to call it "brewing"...sorry).

I'm mildly offended by this.  ;)  I've had extract BREWS win gold medals, qualify for MCAB, and take second best in show, beating out hundreds, and in the case of two competitions, thousands of entries.  I've since made the transition to AG, but I still enjoy making extract if time is short.  Brewing isn't just about the recipe, it's the techniques, fermentation temperatures, and other skills developed.

Just an FYI, in French brewing is 'brassage' which actually means more or less 'to mix,' i.e., stirring grain with a paddle. So it really depends on the language. You could be a brasseur if you moved some extract with a paddle :-)

so the guys that join fraternities are brewed?   ;D

Combo batch and fly sparging while staying at a Holiday Inn Express did NOT get me into the second round...but if DID get me kicked out of the Holiday Inn Express.

Old Ale and Berliner Weisse, both no-sparged.  I always no-sparge the Old Ale.  The Berliner Weisse was step-mashed and by the time I had all the water in for the steps it was all I needed.
Brew on

Tom,
Congrats on the Old Ale!  I was starting to get worried when looking through the list that there were no CO reps for winning any of the categories.
I'm interested to see the recipe in Zymurgy.

Way to go.

Well congratulations are in order!  Excellent work on the Flanders!  I'm sure it is a world class beer.

Turns out the batch sparged ESB ended up with a Bronze.
