    Had one last year which did the same thing. I semi-freaked as I unwisely went ahead with the
    brew day and then had to make an emergency run down to get another yeast. I had to let the wort
    sit for 24 ...

    As a final note to this discussion, my score sheets arrived yesterday. They were remarkably
    consistent. One judge was a national BJCP, the other non-BJCP/experienced. The former scored it
    34, the latt...

    Notice in the bio, paragraph five, a typo 'days' instead of states I think if it is fixable

    This has been an entertaining and informative thread and I appreciate all the honest opinions.
    Really didn't expect such an outpouring, but have enjoyed the discussions of serious, but civil
    opinions....

    I could understand being shocked or confused by a 33, when in reality 33 is a respectable score
    in BJCP competitions. Sounds like you knew those high scores were inflated.Edit: And regardless
    of the s...

    A LOWEST score of 42 sounds unreasonable to me. If that's your lowest, I'd assume every single
    beer you've ever entered has been a gold medal winner, either that or you're entering comps
    with unqualif...

    Thanks to all. Yooper, I think my score was too high in the contest I got a 42 in. I am sure if
    you were judging it would have deservedly been scored lower. It didn't even win its class,
    which tells y...

    Since I retired I'll be lucky to come out with enough to buy an ounce of hops :(
