It's in Pittsburgh this year so hopefully they will do a good job. You could always enter a different region.

Yeah? That's too bad. I have had good experiences with this competition, but have never been able to attend.

I wouldn't say it differs that much unless we are talking about freshness. Most breweries strive to put out a consistent product and Pliny tends to Be fairly consistent when fresh.

Thanks! 2nd year in a row. I was pretty surprised actually since the Pils that won it was only 4 weeks old (1 week in the keg).

I'll post the Munich Dunkel recipe when I get home.

I got two 1st place wins and BOS. I was hoping for the signed book, but I think they are just gonna send the $100 gift certificate since its easier to mail (not that I'm complaining of course) :-)

I think Evil Cousin is waaaay danker than Pliny. It has different hops as well. It tastes like Heretic uses Summit as well which I don't think Pliny uses (probably mostly American citrus hops)

I tried to take mine apart using several wrenches and various other methods. It wouldn't budge and I striped the posts. I need the correct tools to move them.

a liter is a bit much for me to remove for only 2.5gal of finished beer and I would be too nervous about adding it straight to the beer hoping it wont get infected
