Good for you! I only two people on that list, I think, just you and Racheal (hotbreakhotel here on the forum). Good job!

That's pretty sweet that John Palmer may have judged my Berliner ( and the recipe even came from him & Jamil's book ! ). I brewed it last year, and I almost didn't enter it because I don't have much left. It actually is the simplest beer I ever brewed - low grain bill, 15 min. boil, brewday was about half as long as usual. I didn't do a sour mash or anything, I just used White Labs' "Berliner Weisse blend" that they release once a year. Next time I probably will go with a sour mash, because it took a long time (6+ months) to get the amount of sourness I wanted with the blend. Until then, it just tasted really bland whenever I sampled it.

This is probably what I have found to be the biggest benefit of joining a club. It's nice to get knowledgeable feedback on the competition score sheets, but it's one-way feedback. At club meetings, you can share your beers with several people and get constructive feedback right away where you can ask questions about ways to improve, different processes, etc.

Jesse, 2nd Cali Common. Sorry Adam! :-)
We want to be in a club, but the only one fairly close is KGB and in my opinion they are already pretty large and only going to grow with the popularity of homebrewing lately. Anyone want to help us get a Clawson brew club going? LOL

BTW, I heard a rumor that Phil is brewing at Kuhnhen's. So he may be a bit too busy to enter as much beer as he usually does.

I like brewing. I live in Clawson. I'd help with a Clawson brew club.

Awesome! Looking forward to reading through you thread about the Detroit water report and comparing it to the report I got after sending in a sample of our water. I've done some adjustments and have gotten great results. Our first 1st place at the Ren. Fest. was water adjusted!

This was my first competition and I just got my scoresheets! The e-mail says they hope to get them all out by Thursday.

My IPA didn't fair well, but I knew it had some issues.

My best was a 32/50 for a Sour Stout (cat 23) - I also sent some Apple Wine that scored a 32. Lots of good feedback - I've got less than a year under my belt, so I'm happy with the results.

Oh that sounds great, I would like to know how accurate those reports are. I've been thinking about sending in water to Ward Labs, is that who you used?

I also just received my scoresheets,

APA1 - 32
APA2 - 35
Dry Stout - 34.5
Belgian Dark Strong - 36
Black Licorice Porter - 35

I'm pretty happy with the scores although I'd prefer to be decorated in gold
