Hi Rob, could you clarify a few things? Will silver and bronze winners receive prizes? What is being determined in the 2nd round? Presumably gold medal winners are tops in one of the 25 categories. Is the 2nd rnd to determine Best in Show? Thanks

Brewing a Saison in a few weeks and I'm on the fence about a starter. I really want decent ester production. Using Wyeast 3711, 6 gal batch, OG 1058. There doesn't seem to be a clear answer regarding intentionally underpitching and ester production on the internets. Mark, perhaps you could chime in?...

I used to love ST IIPAs, but I find them to be way too cloying and not enough aroma hop character. Either they are mashed too high or there's an overuse of carapils. Not the best example of the style by a longshot.

If only the BO would get this from Poland:

Had it in Lublin this summer. Truly, nectar of the gods.

Got the Sorachi from Bob at beer and wine filter. I'd recommend it, as it's pretty versatile; IPAs/IIPAs, saisons, US wheats. I've heard people complain that it's like lemon pledge if overused. I don't think I'd ever do a single hop IPA with it, but I think it works well with C hops in an IPA.

I must be alone here, as I found the overuse of crystal malts and C hops to be a sickly combination.

Great Lakes Stalin’s Choice Russian Imperial Stout



It never ceases to amaze me how Stalin gets a "pass" in history and our culture in general. I wonder how a Hitler's Choice Bock would fair?

if you are going to keep the crystal you'll have to add some base malt to help with converting your crystal in the minimash.

all that being said if you leave everything as is you will still end up with a good beer.



Since when does crystal malt need to be mashed? Am I missing something?

Unearthly had a production date of june 22 2010, so it's definitely not the LCBO. So it's either me or Southern Tier.

Peter, You seem to be one of the few that gets it. Is there any other local brewer that takes feedback so seriously and engages this much with the beer geeks? It's been said ad nauseum that Ontario is ripe for a proper west coast IPA on LCBO shelves. Get this sucker on the shelves, and you will dese...

I doubt it was the time at LCBO. The 2xIPA I got had a production date of June 22. Unfortunately the Unearthly has a production code that I can't decipher.

This beer does not fade that much in my experience. In the past I've had 9 month old bottles that had bright hop aroma.
