I'd be game to participate. It would be really neat to see variation in results.

You heard the experts! Brew whatever recipe you want- steal it from a brewpub, copy Jamil's book, brew one of mine.....

If you have a great beer, as long as your brewed it yourself on non-commercial equipment, it's eligible.

If you have a non-great beer and just want some feedback on how to improve it, competitions are a good place to get opinions. The scoresheets are very well done, and will give you helpful hints on how to improve the beer.

That would be fun to do. I would image that no two beers would taste the same do to variations with process, temps, and yeast cell counts.

Oh, on the subject of using other people's recipes. If anyone wins anything with one of my recipes, I'd appreciate a picture of you with a glass of the beer in one hand and your medal/ribbon/prize/whatever in the other. I'll tack it up over my taps along with anything I win.

How tight to the original recipe do we want to keep it? I'm all for sticking to the recipe exactly, 70C mash, nottingham yeast, etc. Sound good?

yeah, as written for US imperial, adjusting only for your equipment/ hop aa etc, to get:
1.037 OG/ 23 Ibu/ 21 srm. 158* mash for 60 min.
for me- this means 5.5# MO, 1# 6 oz of C-60, 5 oz of choc.
cheers and good luck!
