Got an Ordinary Bitter w/ WY1318 that I'd like to put in.

The ESB that was made from the slurry might end up being closer to an EIPA.

It was a little dryer than I expected when I transfered to the secondary. Not sure what was going through my head, but that made me decide it would be a good idea to throw in a couple of ounces of Cascade dry hops and call it a EIPA. Should be tasty, but might not fit into the English Pale Ale category.

Me too! Maybe I'll send it as well if the sponsors are willing to add another category: Indian Extra Special Bitters. Mine's a strong Yeoman's Special Bitters with 5 oz total hops in equal portions -- Amarillo, Centennial, Columbus, Cascade, and Chinook. Could end a fine session of judging Bitters on a hoppy note...

KB, better make that the ESB category. A slight miscalculation in sparge water volume plus a greater than expected boil off left me with a surprisingly high OG. I swear, with all this fancy new gear I've picked up recently (propane burner, amongst a few other toys), I kinda feel like a newbie all over again. It's my second brew with the thing, and I'm still getting used to it.

Haha, I've been using the same equipment for several years and still have batches that surprise me with wacky volumes or efficiencies!
