News from me. I have a brewery. Well power in my garage. It's great so I have a fridge and so on. And I've decided to go BIAB With Recirculation. Eventually going. Electric.
I measured it on Thursday and it just cracked 20%. :-) gave it a stir to rouse the yeast, hopefully it keeps going for a couple of months

I was going to give my oatmeal stout a stir tonight but mother nature helped me out

I'd suggest just emailing them, it'll probably be a basic ale yeast but it's unlikely anyone here will know for sure

The last one hurt my pride a bit. Nothing fancy for me this time. I'll make a beer but it'll have to be to style to the T.

I'm planning a Belgian Tripel with 3879 yeast Friday. See how that goes. And a double batch Pilsner that may or may not (leaning to not) be ready by then. If they're up to scratch I'll throw em in.

Failing that, next year. WCIPA v2 and the ManawaBrew Pale Ale for definite into some comps!!

I hadn't even thought about the NHC, I don't brew to style, I just brew whatever I want, only thing that I have that might do ok would be a ipa called many hops make light work, but it, just like all my beers, suffers from chill haze, and it's 8.4% so not quite iipa.
Brewing a chocolate porter this weekend but no idea if that'll be good.
And I'm not wasting super beer, even if it was ready, on a comp, I'm already sending almost half to people on America
