    I think one thing you have to separate a little is the difference between a "good" score, and a
    "good" beer.I have a feeling that's where my Blonde sits. I like it, other folks like it, it's
    something...

    What do you guys typically do to improve your beers in competition, other than try to directly
    address the feedback? For example, how does one typically "improve complexity" vs. doing a
    better job of ...

    Hey guys - I just found this thread and wondered if you all got your feedback yet? I got mine
    and the comments were very constructive.Milk Stout - scored a 31 and advanced to mini-BOS. I
    did get some ...

    What would you recommend to add to the water?+1 on not using softened water. That was my issue.
    I used my city's water report and Palmer's water chemistry spreadsheet to calculate that I
    needed to dil...

    That makes sense to me, too. It'd be an easy test. With so little volume of wort in the heating
    chamber, I'm sure any lag in the power on/off cycle could pretty quickly heat everything.I
    think we have...

    Yeah, I'll give it a try slowing it down next time. Though, other than disturbing the top of
    the grain bed, we haven't had any issues with stuck mashes at that flow rate or anything, so
    that's good.I'...

    In my case, I have a very high bicarbonate level. That gives lighter colored beers a terrible
    harshness, very sharp. I made a kolsch a few years ago without any adjustments, and it was
    sharp and harsh...

    Could you elaborate some more on that? What ions in particular cause that?Sodium and sulfates,
    in particular, can make a beer very harsh. I brewed a Kolsch several years back (before I paid
    attention ...

    We do have a ball valve on the output & we've been running it fast. I'm worried about slowing
    it down and getting the boil problem again. We'll test that soon, but the group I brew with and
    I are gene...

    Just wanted to post an update to this thread:We actually found out we were getting a slow flow
    rate due to some issues with our pump inlet. We increased the flow to the pump, and are
    actually getting ...
