This is what started it:
We decided to then:
Yes. It was agreed to stick to it exactly as written (save for your gear/efficiency adjustments & hop AA's).

If you are in, let us know. Bragging rights is the prize.
Then the prize is the prize!
Thanks for starting the dedicated thread! Do you want to mention the option of a mini-swap so we can compare some of the beers ourselves in addition to the feedback from the judges?
It isn't required or anything (obviously).
Personally, I want to see how mine tastes before agreeing to spend the $$ to ship/ or receive. Regardless, I will swap in person with locals (Palefire lives real close to me, for example).
Milds gone Wild. Awesome! :mug:
EDIT: (Or, maybe mine will be so lousy that I leave 3 gallons with you ...)
Whaat... people brewing mild's without coercion or happy pills?! I know everyone says they love mild's yet no one seems to make them. I'd definitely be up for this. I just brewed a bunch for a little mild experiment I did a while back. All were delicious and I have a few more going as I type. What's one more? :D
I just brewed some of this up using AJ's primer. I'll be interested to see how it turns out. I saved a few from before. If it turns out well though, I'm drinking it. If it doesn't, I'm still drinking it. :D
I have never drank a Mild as far as I know. The beer sounds really good. And it seems like a nice easy brew day. If I can find the time for this one, count me in.
well d*mmit...i brewed this a few weeks before you came up with this....I had to sub goldings for fuggles.....
does that count?
