Good man! Hope your doing well to... Say, you don't by chance have a beer gun do you? I would like to give my IPA and APA a little bit more time in the fermentors before I bottle them. This competition is coming up quick!

305 Entries... I wanted to be a beer steward so I could taste beers that scored the best and get an idea of what judges like/dislike. But I had to work that Saturday the judging took place and missed it. (IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/banghead.gif) I wonder what its like to taste a couple hundred beers in a day. And how much approximately does a judge consume for each beer he judges?

Normally flights are 10 - 13 beers on average. We had a morning set of flights and an afternoon one. It takes about 10 min to judge an entry. Each judge consumes maybe 3oz of each entry, more of the good ones and less of the bad ones.

I think the high abv categories are the biggest challenge.

It is interesting to steward and see the reactions and comments.

BTW - I see you have a duvel clone on deck. I was happy with this one with a 35 in a earlier comp.

Thanks for the info David... And that is a good looking recipe, but the all fuggles hops additions seems a bit strange to me. I really need to get around to brewing this as my yeast for my duvel clone has been in my fridge for at least 6 months lol. Needless to say I plan on making a 1L starter and make sure the yeast is still viable. I will then ramp it up to a 2L starter.

The fuggles is a sub for styrian goldings. Due to the ABV, it is not that hoppy. Could have used a little more.
