I wanted to send an ale for the competition
Yes and I sent you my name and address but you sent me abuse.
I think you might not be playing fair @Henry 79 i think @Chippy_Tea might need to deploy the "new member rule" here i suspect.
Sent him my name and address and he replied "stop being such a dipstick"
He is in the "new member rule" moderation queue but i allowed his posts through as they seemed harmless I have sent you and Leon a joint PM about this thread could you reply asap thanks.
Hi I’ve got an American pale ale id like to enter, can you send me your address please and I’ll send a couple of bottles down.
Argh I dont know if I should enter.
I have something weird going on with my head and neck at the moment (touch wood its not sinister) and I've lost all taste and smell.
Dont want to enter a sub par beer. Might get a mate to test my new brew to see if its uptown scratch.
Done a Mac Stout brew for a Ol, Track, Cloudwater and Runway comp and worried as I can't test it before. FML..lol
Bottled an APA à la James Morton last weekend. Don't know if it'll be ready in time, but if it is I'll put one in. Are the competition rules posted anywhere?
Send me a case or two and I'll give it a good tasting so you don't send in a dodgy one.
Thought I was gonna sit this one out due to a lack of American style ales, but I have a black IPA almost done fermenting. If I can bottle in time I'll send it but 8th June might be cutting it fine.
Pm me if you need my address
Send it in, you know it makes sense. Stick a Mac stout in for good measure too.
Can you send me your address. I might have a pale ale ready in time
Still time to enter. Get your bottles in.
Some bad news. Judging will be postponed until at least the Monday. I have a tooth infection and on antibiotics. No drinking for me. On the plus side, slightly longer to get your bottles in.
I am finally off the pills so judging tonight.
With only 3 beers(sort yourselves out boys and girls) and 16 days off the booze this could Be over quickly.
3 highly competitive beers but only one winner.
Firstly I had hoped to get feedback out the same time as results but my daughter as been poorly so been dealing with that rather than typing. Will do it in the morning.
Because it was only 3 entries and I know two of them very well I decided on a blind taste. SWMBO assisted with that and also played a part in tasting.
So in reverse order....
3rd - @dan125 with 35/50
2nd - @Ghillie with 38/50
1st - @Hoddy with 40/50
Well done all and thank you for sending your beers in, especially @Ghillie who lost 2 bottles to MyHermes
Well done to all three of us that entered this hotly contested monthly crown.
Shame I’m stuck in a hotel in Warrington with only carling lager to celebrate with.
What do we have to do to revitalise the interest and entries to keep this comp (monthly or quarterly) going??
Congrats @Hoddy and @Ghillie
I had the pleasure of trying Hoddys IPA and a fine pint it was indeed
But only 3 entries for an American Pale comp is pretty poor - do we know how this compares to other recent months? Maybe the comp format needs refreshing ???
