I'm interested too. Having stepped up toa 60 qt BK is going to give me a. Chance to do some experimenting too. Maybe a side by side of AHS and Midwests strains. See if Wyeast is pulling a fast one on everybody.

Hmmmm....too bad I don't know anyone who's helping to organize a BJCP contest where I could maybe ship them a few bottles to judge independent of the contest.
Send it in under the ol' ladies name

I wasn't happy with how the second starter was acting during the cold crash, so I've decided to postpone the brew day until Tuesday.

This will ensure that both the yeasts are pretty much in the same state (started, finished, crashed, decanted, and put in a mason jar in the fridge)

A lot of competitions allow multiple subcategory entries if the recipe is different, I would say half of the ones I enter do.

I second less hoppy beer but also let me say, definitely don't dry hop. You want everything the same after you fill the fermentors and dry hopping just gives another chance to make things different.

Think about a blond ale or wheat beer as the best possible experiment.

How would dry hopping make things different if you're dry hopping with the same hops?

Hahaha.

Regardless - I have two 5.5 gallon batches tucked away in the fermenters....

I would also be concerned about dryhopping, since it happens post fermentation it might cover up the flavour.

dry hopping concerns = 2
no concerns = 0

keep the votes coming in! I'm gonna primary for ~3 weeks, so there's still time....

Both are actively fermenting this morning.
