Psh, I'm not there yet, dude. That's my point - I'm not planning on entering anything in the near future, so I'm not worried about exceeding the style for my Irish red. If I was going to enter it, I would regin in the gravity a bit.

Best of luck in your creations!

I think that it is fair to say that everyone here brews for their own enjoyment. But some actually enjoy nailing a style spot-on with heir equipment/process. At the end of the day, only you have to be satisfied with your brew.

You are not the only brewer venturing outside style guidelines. Commercial/craft brewers do it all the time. Ever hear of a White IPA?

Make whatever you want and like. I made my last Wit for example by adding irish moss and cold crashed on top of that. I wanted the taste not the cloudy look. It was great beer however it went against the "wheat" style by being spotlessly clear.

Dill pickles?

Yeah, I'm too mainstream for you, dude. I cringe at some of the serious "out there" stuff that I see posted here, but more power to those that enjoy it.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but your dill pickle beer would probably fit in style guidlines for category 21A of the BJCP. Or category 23A...
