Nice. I have never brewed with Nelson Sauvin, but I have some sitting in my freezer just waiting for a good recipe to use them in. Thanks for the post.

Congrats, Jim! I saw a couple of people I know who took home ribbons from that comp. Nice looking beer. Never have used NS hops, now I'm curious to do so.

Hi, I've missed seeing you around here! Are you back in the Chicago-area?

I like using chinook for a basic bittering hop in APAs and IPAs, as a first wort hop. It gives a nice clean bittering and provides a good background, I think, for whatever hops I'm really featuring in flavor and aroma.

I like the combination and, thankfully, so did the judges

5.5 gallons into the fermenter, probably 5 gallons into the bottles. Most of those hops are late additions and dry hops, wanted lots of aroma and flavor with less than 40 IBUs.

?? Are the results to this posted somewhere? I had sent a couple beers in, but never saw any results posted and it said on their site that results would be announced on Feb. 17. Had not gotten my scoresheets back either....

Thanks
