It's personal taste I guess :P I'm more likely to sit down and have a few pints of the blonde personally!

I don't think I ever picked up my sheets from you last year. I didn't care enough :P I personally would just expect a bit more feedback for $20 a pop. My gold medal sheet has literally 10 words on it. Under Aroma is says "H.R. spot on for style" and I don't really know what that means!

Well I guess amateurs enter comps to get professional feedback and to see where they can improve. They have a lot a palate cleansers between beers and manage it all by style. They went through it at another session I went to during beer week.

I learnt heaps in the sensory training session. They basically had TEDs and added different stuff to different glasses so we could taste the difference. I think we went through 13 different faults including things like DMS and Light strike. It was definitely worth it. I don't know what they'd need to put another one on, but you could get in touch with Justin and see what he reckons.

"H.R. spot on for style." lol! I also have no idea :scratch:. Hope you understood the otehr 50% of your feedback* :lol:

I don't think last year's sheets had much on them either. I wouldn't have thrown yours out though so can only imagine that they are buried here somewhere :). Think I read them out to you?

Didn't realise you actually made it to the sensory training - lucky bugger! I've missed two opportunities at this now. Would be great to get Justin's contact details if you have them.

Thanks mate ;),

* Now I want to know what the other five words were :P.

Yeah I think you did too, buggered if I remember what they said though :P

In Appearance it said "good" with a tick and Flavour and Body said "Clean well balanced pallet", then ticks everywhere else.

Tomorrow, Saturday 02/03/13, there is a, 'Meet the Maker' thing on at the Norfolk Hotel in Fremantle. I don't have many details* on it but apparently the Three Pines brewers will be there.

NME will be down there from 2pm. I've got something on but am going to try and get there as well.

My first job on arriving in WA was at the Norfolk. Back then we used to call it the, 'Norfolk and Worries.'

:)

* If anyone knows any more details can they post them?

I'll try to make it

Thanks to Labour Day, residents in Western Australia get a long weekend to kick off the month of March.

And what better way to start that long weekend than by heading to Fremantle’s Norfolk Hotel where the crew from 4 Pines will be firing up the BBQ and sharing a few of their beers, including the Hallertau Mittlefruh from the recently released Keller Door Single Hop Series.

This is an afternoon affair with the first snags due to hit the grill at 2pm and dished out for free thereafter.

damn PP, I knew I should have rung you back last night. Hope you're having a great day, we've got a sydney friend over so we've been to the swan valley and Ive made her taste the feral hop hog :thumbs:

I never got there :P. Was getting a lift with Case but had to wait until his baby woke up. Still asleep at 4:30pm. Think he must have given her a sleeping pill :interesting:. NME said it was pretty good though.

Thanks for the link Steve and sorry to miss you :sad:.

NME, I think you are just having the same problem as I am. I have never gone to a home brew event that started at 7pm. :o

Usually 7pm, well, maybe a bit later, is the time I start looking for a taxi or narrowly avoid being run over by one.

I think we should start a bit earlier so as we don't get caught in the woeful Freo taxi queue :roll:.

In at 5 and out by 11 I reckon ;). Happy to have beers here before 7 though if needs be. Sinkas doesn't mind starting a bit earlier either.

:peace:

Git this bad boy in 18.7 to create "sufficient interest so this minor style might be promoted to a full style in the future" git-er-done.

Nice article; http://byo.com/stories/item/2013-birth-" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; ... n-dark-ale

Maybe it was John Maier of Rogue Brewing in Newport, Oregon who made it popular, when he made Skull Splitter, a black interpretation of his Brutal Bitter strong IPA, in 2003?

Good Luck !!! :luck:

Thanks for the history lesson Mad Scientist, so I guess my beer is an AIBA so it probably has to go into the specialty catagory. Might have more chance of winning if theres nothing else like it in my class :champ: :champ:

The beer im making fits into the GABF guidelines
Color = 25+ SRM
Original Gravity = 1.056–1.075
Final Gravity = 1.012–1.018
Bitterness = 50–70 IBU
Alcohol by volume = 6–7.5%

Simo, just cancel the other thing :). It's compulsory for you to attend this.

I have your paperwork here btw. Only check my mailbox occasionally but the envelopes weren't too wet so I assume they must have arrived fairly recently :lol:.

Cannot cancel :( Been booked in since last November and paid me $300 entry or whatever it is. It's a team event so I'd be letting too many people down :(

No, I can't make Nev's on Saturday, the missus had organized a lunch thing with friends ages ago. We'll be up the breakwater watching the rain come in.

We're overdue for a beer though
