Really? Interesting!

The original name of stout was stout porter. The original name of porter was entire.

I'd be disqualified if I entered a beer to represent Brews Bros and I might be disqualified if I entered a beer to represent Brew Brothers of Pikes Peak.

Why would you be disqualified?

Conflict of interest. I can't judge my own beer and I think it would be questionable at best to judge other beers that my beer may be competing against.

I know, I was responding to Guest, who offered me up as a judge, and explaining why someone else would be better.

Sorry. It's my day off and I'm extensively sampling the community brew.

The original name of stout was stout porter. The original name of porter was entire.

and in Ireland a regular porter was referred to as a "plain" while strong porter was "stout porter"

I could send my Oastsidian Stout along as a Robust Porter, it's got so much stuff going on in it it might just fit the bill

I made what I thought was a pretty good brown porter, but I'm not sure I can recreate it. I do plan on brewing to try and recreate it soon, but I doubt I could have something for August.Cheers,Rich

I prefer porters to many stouts because they seem to have more going on - particularly vs. a dry stout. It's not just a weaker stout and in fact a lot of porters are higher gravity than many stouts.

I disagree, a dry stout can be divine. I make one at 1.036 that is highly enjoyable

How many diapers go into a Porter? Or is it more a question of the brand?

I'll give it a shot, but I can't guarantee it will be ready in time. When is it due again?
