    I have a Marzen (no umlaut on the tablet) that I brewed in March. Thought I'd give it a go with that one. Not sure when the competition opens but I'll be done living the dream in Atlanta Friday so I can get my entries in.

    Methinks the competition should be open to any good Bavarian lager - I have a killer Helles and another of my Schwarzbiers just about ready to enjoy....

    And love that picture of the lovely Lyssa - those six masses of beer must outweigh her!

    Ive got a Helles as well. I can sure taste the pilsner malt. Not quite as "toasty malty" as I would like. But still good.

    Its not any more work once you get a precise temperature control environment. The only tough part is the extra time. Worth the wait though.

    I didn't bring any metal home this year, but I did get a Honorable Mention. Wherever that means. Kind of like kissing your sister.

    You are talking about the medals, right? Not the sister kissing thing?

    Dude you know my wife, you don't know my sister. Which do you think I'd kiss, given one has at least a bit of a family resemblance?
