Jack, the judging of amateur beers is to compare them against commercial
standards. And, as there are many different strains from Wyeast and other
labs, attunement isn't the issue. Next week, Goose Island will begin
accepting beers for the national competition. Why not take a few of your
beers there and enter 'em? Then, should you win, you'll have done it with
Edme dry yeast. Now, can we put this issue to rest for a few months?
