I'm adding them right away.  Can't argue with your analysis, this is the first beer I have ever dry hopped.

(It's quite tasty though, I have some bottled for next years Cascade Brewers Cup.)

Way to have faith in your beer.  Judging BOS is a consolation prize.

You give me too much credit Tom.  This past year I did get a 37 on an Irish Red.  I did stewart though.  It was fun.

All grain recipe :)

Here's my recipe.  Modified from the W10 in BYO:

18 # 2 row
4 # munich 10L
3 # crystal 10L
1.5 # Carafa II
1.25 # special roast


1 oz simco 75 minutes
2 oz amarillo 60 minutes
.5 oz cascade 2 minutes
1.5 simcoe 2 minutes


dryhop:


2 oz cascade, .5 oz simcoe, 4 oz french oak chips


Mash at 152 60 minutes


Pitch 4 packs of Wyeast 1056 or equal starter.

10 gallons

Gonna brew this again this weekend.  Everyone loves it.  But, I'm gonna add two pounds of fresh cut Jalepenos with tem minutees left in the boil.

Any comments?

I made a Black IPA on Monday and I used only .5# of Carafa (5 gal batch) and it turned out dark brown.  Next timeI think I'll use .75# or 1 # of Carafa, but I'm sure it will be tasty.  Thanks for the advice :)

You know dude, I'm a newbie here.  And when I first read this post I thought "what an a$$" but didn't want to say anything for fear of being such a newbie.  But, the more I think about it, I realize that 99% of folks would think that being BOS judge is an honor. 

I'm sticking with my original thoughts.

Ah so I guess there is a use for emoticons after all...  It was clearly a joke. I've known Tom for years and was yanking his chain.

Has anyone tried making this a Black India Pale Lager?

Same grain bill...same hop schedule only switching out the yeast to a lager yeast and fermenting at 50F.

The same but different.  :-\

It's quite the dichotomy of a beer style. I've had some of my friends and some Widmer. All I can say is there's a good chance, I'll never brew this beer. I just don;t see the point.
