I'll send a bottle of mine in, just as an example of what happens when you have too much candi syrup in a recipe!

I'm only going to have two beers at the competition as I tried blending and didn't come up with one I thought was better, they were both slightly different and better in their own ways.

I took my New World recipe to the local homebrew club last night and everyone who had it raved about it. The beer has really turned into a VERY GOOD beer. The amount of change that has happened to this beer in the past few weeks is huge, its pretty much a totally different beer.

I'm going to bottle a few tonight and then rotate in my Traditional into the kegorator to chill & carb that I can't wait to taste.

Here's a bump with a reminder that I want to get everyones entries by the 25th so I can do the tasting sometime around October 10th.
I'll be getting the forms together and PMing you all with my ship-to address and your entrant number and more details.

Okay, finally bottled yesterday. I know it's late, but work got busy this week (and we realized that oh crap we need to work on the baby's room). Despite making a bunch of stupid mistakes (like not tightening the back of the bottling spigot enough, meaning I had to shove my [clean] hand in while racking) I think it turned out okay, but I'll have to see in the future (I'll try a bottle before I send one to you, saq, and if it tastes like rat ass I'll hold off). Probably not a Westy 12 at all, but at the very least it's a decent beer that will age well.

I am sending everyone a PM *RIGHT NOW* with the entry details and shipping information for the competition. If you do not have a PM from me by the end of today send me a message. I am going off the amount of entries per person listed in the first post.

PM's are sent out, please either respond to my PM's or post in here that you received the information and you are still able to send out your bottles. Don't worry about getting them to me by the 25th as I may not be able to do the tasting until after the 10th.

Fill out the forms as directed in the PM, yes it is kind of a waste to only use one form on the BJCP bottle ID but that way everyones bottle ID papers are as uniform as possible so the judging is done as anonymously as possible (I'm not memorizing everyones bottle ID's)
Just fold up the recipe entry form and include it in the shipping, putting each one in an envelope with the bottle entry ID on it would be dandy but is not required.

Got the PM. I'll ship 'em out soon!
I'm too lazy and have too many beers going to keep updating this!
