Default Visual Reference Charts for Beer Styles and Yeast

Hey All,

I’m not exactly sure what got me started on this, but over the past month or so I’ve been leisurely building a series of charts displaying the BCJP beer styles and their parameters. Maybe I’m just a visual learner, but by seeing everything laid out in such a way, I appreciated some of the styles a bit better.

After a little prodding from my brother, I decided to post the charts out there for anyone to look at or reference. As such, I wanted to post some links to them here in the hopes that I can get some feedback on them. Anyone find them useful? Is there anything detracting? Anyway to make them better or improve the charts?

BJCP Beer Style Visual Reference Charts:


After I finished the BJCP Style Charts, I felt the urge to keep at it, so I recently started building visual charts for commercial yeast strains. Only the first one has been posted yet, with the others still being works in progress.

White Labs Yeast Visual Reference Charts:
Please let me know if you have any thoughts or feedback on this pet project of mine. You can either leave comments here, or preferentially on the pages linked above (as it’s a lot easier for me to keep the feedback sorted that way). Additionally, assuming I keep at this, are there any other ‘visual chart’ topics I might be able to tackle?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts – I’ll try to update the links as new charts come out.

Slainte!


-Okt

These are great! I'm currently in a BJCP class, and these will definitely be great to reference / study. I think I'll take a few copies with me tonight for others.

Thanks for sharing!

I like the yeast chart... The others I personally don't care about because I really don't like the BJCP's style guidelines and their monopoly in the beer judging field, but they look great, and I am sure many people will find them helpful!

Hey Guys, thanks for the feedback so far.

Gila - I was unaware of a White Labs poster. Can you post a link to it?

senorswiss - Hey that's great! As I mentioned, I didn't have a real reason for while I started building these charts, but that's awesome that you find them useful for the BJCP tests. Thanks for sharing!

-Okt

Oktober....these are fantastic! Being one that really needs to see to understand myself, all of these will be printed and hung on the wall of the garage! Thanks for all of the hard work.

Jason, if you would like, shoot me a pm or an email and I can send you a sharper, higher-res version of the charts for priniting.
