I'm proposing that the "official" winner can only be selected from those of us who follow the recipe exactly (excluding differences between maltsters, etc.), but why the hell not let everyone who creates a very similar recipe enter it and compare notes with them?
+1

Discussing slight variations would be beneficial IMO. We may discover that a different hops only makes it better.

I plan on making the recipe as written if my lhbs has the ingredients, if not I will have make substitutions.

Are there still slots for this in the HBT comp? I would like to do this one again (it was tasty) but I didn't plan to enter a mild when I originally entered. Of course I still have two more beers I'm entering that haven't even been brewed yet, so maybe my plate is a little full...

Agreed, I am entering mine since I already have it ready and am interested in simply comparing notes with others, I see this as a process evaluation. Maybe more like a group tasting, then getting to peek at the brewing notes to see if a nuance can be related to a specific process by looking for similarities in everyones steps, would no mashout effect a flavor vs doing a mashout? etc.

Exactly. The idea was to brew the same recipe and see how process makes a difference, but this isn't anything official. Do what you want. Those that want to compare exact recipes can. Those that want to see how little differences affect it can as well. Not sure how suddenly I'm all OCD. This is just a bunch of people trying something for fun. Jeez.

Do we take issue with force carb vs bottle conditioning? I've never bottle conditioned, but if I decide to do this I could easily rack some into another bucket and prime it. I don't want to flare up any of the non-fun nit picking again. It IS part of the process, so maybe I just do it and see how it fares. See? Answered my own question.

Ya. I thought it would be fun to do this because its the sort of thing my club does but some of you guys are acting like we're piloting the Space Shuttle here. It's not about it being a 'fair and even playing field.' Good grief. It's beer. Relax already. Orfy has put up a nice recipe. I liked it when I made it. I'd enjoy drinking it again. If you want to make it and I want to make it and we submit our beers to a third party for evaluation that could be fun. We're not running for Congress. Take a deep breath. It's hardly worth getting you knickers in a wad over.
