2017 NHC Competition Chat

May as well get one started...

Got two entries. Ones already to go, waiting a week or so to bottle up the other. An American Stout and a 28C Roselare with Tart Cherries

The sour beer is puzzling me. The one with cherry finished at 1.010 but the one with pomegranate finished at 1.000. Curiouser and Curiouser. Both identical. 100% pils, wyeast roselare blend, fruit concentrate from Brownwood Acres. It's fun to have one with a little body, head and lacing.

I also have two entered. Luckily enough I was given the Seattle region, no mail necessary! I'm likely submitting both in the wood-aged category. A Belgium Quad and a Scottish Strong that have each gone through a Woodinville Rye Whiskey Barrel though I also have a Cream Ale that will likely be ready by showtime.

Good luck all.

Nevermind, just read the rules. Only one entry per category. The Quad was a bit undercarbed anyhow.

This is my first time entering.

Am I reading those dates right? We only have a month (March 9th) to get our beers turned in?

Same here. It's been another slow brewing year, and what I have been brewing are some 1-off's I'm dabbling in. I have a barleywine that is promising, but it still needs another year or two in the cellar I think.

I'm entering the Dunkel I've been tinkering with (low O2 style). I mostly entered it for contrast to the feedback I've received for my standard version. Curious to see.

I just checked, and my entries were accepted to my preferred drop off.

I have a Barleywines a high ranking judge said was nice. A LODO Pils that is very good. A Dunkel and a Dark Czech Lager to decide which to enter. Will brew a special bitter in a day or two.

Every year there are high hopes, maybe I can get one or two out of the first round this year.

Yeah, I'm in a 3 year slump for advancing, Jeff. We'll see!

Yeah stuck out the last 3 years, after many years of advancing. It gets tougher every year, in my opinion.

I have 3 and have never advanced.  I've been close, but no cigar.  Have a Golden Strong , Saison, and Kolsch for Indy.  Was surprised Rebel in Nashville was not on the list.  All the beers are solid and you never know. I remember having a Saison that I thought was stellar, scored 21 LOL.  Good luck to all, I do like the feedback.

I have a bunch stockpiled to choose from.... Mild, O. Bitter, blonde, Brown Ale, Scottish 70, Czech Dark Lager, IPA, Helles, Bo-Pils, Kolsch.... Just have to see which ones seem to be at their best in a couple weeks.  Will send 5 in though.

Same address as before if you want feedback again...

Mine are going to mostly distinctive so no details here in public.

Good luck to everyone-

Live in NJ. Submitted to PA and NY with Seattle as a safety back-up because they filled slow last year.

Guess where my beers are going?  :P
