Got to www.samueladams.com , "promotions" , <click "LONGSHOT" banner> ,"the winners list".

I'm REALLY glad to see some IPAs, APAs (beers with HOPS!!) scoring high.

I only see 1 familiar name, a guy from TBN.

Rhoobarb beat you...

The Imperial IPA recipe was featured on the Jamil Show, if you're interested.

I'm disappointed that no smoked beers made it (although it seems EVERY brewpub I've been in lately has something smoked on draft).

Has anybody that enered received your scoresheets yet? I sent in two, and didn't win (nor did I expect to, but I hoped!), but I am really looking forward to my evaluations. The winners list website said they would be mailed out a few weeks later - it has now been a month.

Same here. Waiting........... When somebody does get their feedback, could you let us know so we can start our obsessive mail box watching.

I just put a call into my buddy in Boston to find out the scoop. His SWMBO runs the brewery there. He told me they would be out in a few weeks like last month. I'll post here if I find out anything.

I was home this morning when the UPS man came by. My wife or I hadn't ordered anything. Lo and behold it was a Longshot T-shirt and my scoresheets.

My Czech Pilsner scored a 30 and my Brown Porter scored a 34.5. I think that's pretty good. Their comments pretty well agree with what I thought my future recipe tweaks would be. I thought about entering the Pils as a German instead of a Czech as it was maybe a bit low on the malty end.


Now that I know how my beers were rated, I wish I knew what the average score was for each catagory so I could get a feel for how well my beers ranked.


So, keep an eye out for the UPS van

UPS just visited me today
Scored a 24 for my first all-grain (a saison). It fermented a little warmer than I wanted. I used T-58 yeast, and I guess it doesn't like the heat as much as other Belgain strains. Got marked down for fusels, but they have mellowed a little.
Scored a 33 on my partial mash brown ale. Got a flaw for vegetal flavor, probably from using a good dose of Mt. Hood hops (4oz with only 36 IBU in a 5.5gal batch) instead of more American profile hops. But quite tasty.
These were my 3rd & 4th brews since getting back into brewing after a 10 year hiatus. I'm happy, and a t-shirt to boot!

How did everybody else do?

I scored a 33.5 on my ESB. Much better score than I expected because i know i can improve on it. It was only my second batch. (they are lucky they didn't get one of the gushers).
