Thanks everyone, it's kind of funny but when BMC drinkers come over I usually start them with a Honey Lite Lager, then have them try the Irish Red, I think mainly because they are the easiest drinking. In the back of my mind I thought if I got any mention there it would probably be for one of those or maybe my fat tire clone, and that one didn't score very well at all.

The recipe I used for the red is listed in my recipes.

I will let you know later this week.

Congratulations! That is great news. I think it would be great to get some affirmation that your beers are really great. I have friends who tell me they love my beer- of course, that might be because it's free for them!

Congrats man, that's really cool. I'm scared for the day that I enter a beer competition. I already love brewing, but add that competitive side to it and it's all over. Might as well sign the divorce papers now

He used a 10g round cooler for the fermentation bucket & later the lagering carboy, it was fitted with a 20ft immersion chiller and 3 gallons of water.
In antoher cooler he used a small pond pump and a johnson controller to circulate the chilled water as needed. At lagering temps he changed 3 milk jugs of ice daily.
