    They mail you the scoresheets. You don't get any more or less "feedback" by attending. The
    judging is blind.I find the good size regional competitions throughout the year tend to be
    comps where I get ...

  • Posted in thread: Help me not mess up this Bourbon Imperial Stout on 01-26-2016 at 09:41 PM
    If you get to the point where you can taste the bourbon, you have overdone it, IMO. You should
    only really have a "hint" of it, if that. The oak should impart some vanilla, which will vary
    with maturi...

    Why wouldn't you just ship your entries to a competition?I guess I have only seen that for
    large competitions, not anything that would be considered somewhat "local" to me. Are there
    ones I could ship...

    You guys rock. Thanks so much for the helpful info. I think I'll go that route with the cheaper
    scope and the additional accessories because i do plan on plating, propogating, etc as well.
    Going to bu...

    I agree with all said above. I've had the Amscope for going on 3 years with no issues. For my
    purposes it works just fine. If you plan on doing a lot of cell counting, there is some other
    equipment th...

    NHC really is not a particularly good competition if you are primarily seeking "feedback."
    There are over 10 regionals, and thousands of entries. They have switched to using more a
    "checklist" judging...

    Having tasted a few winners the past 2 years, I'm not going to bother. I am fairly certain I'm
    not quite up to that level of expertise and artistry.I know what you mean. I certainly would
    not have des...

    Anyone planning on entering the National Homebrew Competition in a few weeks?I would love to
    enter my raspberry wheat and my Kolsch. Unfortunately, I am not on my "A game" as of late. A
    serious brewer...

    Thanks guys. Do you think it's worth buying a nice refurbished, top brand name (Olympus like
    trentm linked) scope or should I simply look at the cheaper models since they will do what I
    need it to? Ar...

    Thanks trentm. I've seen your posts in other areas and appreciate the info you provide. Any
    recommendations on a good scope anywhere up to the $700-$800 range? Want to be able to view
    morphology and b...
