I will definitely participate with at least my best bitter(s) with 3 different yeasts and I am hoping to get an ESB 4-way yeast comparison brewed this weekend, time permitting.

Nice. I love those kinds of split batches. What yeast strains are you using?

First run on the best bitter was 1318, 1026, and 1469... 2 of the platinum series against 1318.

I'm in with an ESB.

For the record, Brian, I will be entering 7 beers :-)

I did manage to get that ESB brewed (a variation on your Common Room ESB, BTW) this weekend and should have it ready for early June.

7!? Haha, I'm going to need to find another judge! I think I'm going to limit the comp to 10 participants (we are at 9 now) but each participant can enter however many beers they want. That will keep me from being too overwhelmed but will allow the beers fermented with different yeasts, etc to be judged against each other, which should make for some really good info.

Thanks, you've gone and made us all look like lazy brewers!

I'll be lucky if I can get two done by then, with work being so crazy now that the weather is good. Also, I'm still waiting to hear from my friend in the UK if my prize contribution could be shipped over. Let's hope it can...
