Oh, yeah, I'm not a member of the Sonoma Beerocrats either, though I'm thinking about joining since I live in Santa Rosa and all of those guys have been super cool. I'm sure Gabe would be willing to e-mail you a copy of your results.

I just brewed a Honey Wheat with some fresh oranges zest, then pitched a Belgian Yeast. So far it's kinda funky from the yeast, so I'm thinking it needs more time to age and mature. This is my first time experimenting with Belgian yeast, so it might take some tweaking...

Thedavid,

Congrats again on your win. BEST OF SHOW IS AWSOME! Especially first time entering! I entered my IPA about a month ago in a local BjCP tasting not a competition though. It was my first entry and I scored a 34.5 so I tweaked it slightly using the comments of the judges. Now I'm curious on if I improved the beer at all. Can't wait to see the judges comments this time.

Yeah, I am strongly considering joining the Beerocrats. I talked to a lot of the guys from the club at the Battle of the Brews and they were all amazingly nice with the exception of one or two gents who shall remain unnamed. I want to learn as much as possible and step up my game, especially now that I took home a couple of awards, everybody is going to be expecting a lot! Only reason I have hesitated to join the club is because I'm a bit short on time with Work/ School full time...

Are you a member, Bill?
