I received my second round score sheets yesterday from the second round. The RIS received a 38.5, the American Stout scored 39, and the fruit beer received a 24. The fruit beer (Raspberry Imperial Stout) picked up a secondary infection some where along the line and developed a severe diacytle character. So now I will work to track that down. The same beer, bottled at the same time, took gold in a recent comp. with not diacytle detected. But last night when I sampled the source keg I could pick it up. So I need to review my sanitation practices - they will get you every time!

Congratulations Brewpastor. That's a bummer about the Raspberry Imperial Stout.

I had forgotten about the 2nd round score sheets. I hope I get mine soon. My ESB made it to the 2nd round, it'll be interesting to see how it fared.

Congrats on your scores, bummer about your infection though.

Although a sour raspberry imperial stout might turn out really good, though I don't think the diacetyl would work very good
