I've been wondering how others felt about this event. Here is my run down: The Good - The beer. The quality of the collaborations was great. - Access to beer. Short lines for the breweries made getting beer really easy. As did the "all you can drink" aspect. - The brewers. As much as I lo...

I had a good time... my biggest complaint (other than the fucking humidity) was that I waited in the wrong line for ages. I bought my ticket online the day before, and waited with my printed receipt in the ticket-holder line. I arrived at 3:45pm and waited in that line until I reached the front, to ...

On a whim I submitted a dunkelweizen I brewed for the first time. Very basic recipe, partial mash. This was the first beer I've ever submitted to a competition; I was just curious to get some feedback. I thought the beer turned out OK and I had exactly 3 bottles left at the back of the fridge. I liv...

You will be getting your feedback. I have all the sheets ready to send out. I just need to print labels, stuff envelopes and package prizes. The aim is to have everything out by the end of the month, sooner if possible. I must apologize on the scoring. I wasn't aware that the scores would be visibl...

Judging has finished and scores are available now... I entered for the first time, and I'm just wondering what the score is out of? It doesn't appear to be the standard BJCP 50 point scale... Also, will we receive the judging score sheets? Edit: did some hunting around and found this: "We will ...

I guess what I was getting at is since a Geuze is a mix of two already aged beers, what's the basis for there being a general guideline for how long you should age a Geuze before drinking? Unless it's just about giving it enough time for the source Lambics to fully blend and get to know each other,...

Great experiment, thanks for reporting back! I haven't tried the Danstar, but I think the WLP001 is fruiter than the US-05. It seems to have more of a citrus flavour, which works well with the American hops. The US-05 is perhaps a bit more neutral, though it can throw off more vanilla-like flavours...

Ok - I finally got around to trying the batch brewed with WLP001, and it's awesome. It's pretty similar to the US-05, but I think the hop flavor is more pronounced. Who knows for sure, but it tastes awesome and of the 3 the most like Crazy Canuck. Initially I had thought the yeast bite in the Dansta...
