Free Beer!
« on: December 07, 2014, 07:57:44 PM »
I'm looking to ship out a few bombers of the most recent IPA I brewed in hopes of feedback. Any brave souls game? Of course, I would ask that you have judged before and are savvy in the tasting department. The recipe I brewed is below.

PM me if you're interested.
Cheers!

Far from it, and truth be told my OCD lends to meticulous cleaning and handling during the brewery, no worries!

Thank you for taking me up on the offer, any Cigar City beers you'd like to try? I'll throw some in.

I'm always down to try homebrew! I also live in MA and have had the real thing so I can compare your batch to it.

Thanks for the offer! I'm really not concerned with how close to HT it tastes...I'm more interested in an experienced taster or judge can give me solid feedback on the beer. Is that you?

Depending on how quickly you can get it to me I'll take a shot at it. I'm leaving on a cross country move in two months but if you want to shoot me a bottle I'll write up a score sheet and go all overboard on the feedback.

Let me know and I'll PM you my address.

 :).  I am not your tester.  I would probably tell you "yum, man that is good.  I loves me some hops."

Two comments:


 - Three cheers to the Northern Brewer, who post their recipes on-line.  Classy.

 - Four cheers to the Mashweasel and others who brought the Hopstand into to public realm of homebrewing techniques.  8)
