If there's one piece of advice I could give anyone, it's to avoid any place named after the most worthless plant known to man: The palm tree.

I made (and am currently drinking) a pretty good BW.  First one I have made and its pretty damn good.  But then, I am on my second one of the evening and that might have something to do with my choices...

I recommend WLP001 for it.  Cal Ale or even US56 would be great with a decent mini-mash.  If you want the recipe for mine I will dig it out of promash but at the moment a lil too hammered.

You can do a lot of tricks to drop fermentation temp if you want...

On a side note....  Make things interesting and ferment with a Belgian yeast ;)  It will handle the temps fine.... (though the esters might clue him in a bit)

The first wort hopping is a bunch of it, followed by the increased quantities late in the boil.  Later (big) additions result in better aroma and flavor as a result.

I didn't think FWH did much for bitterness, but I guess I was mistaken.

Basically you're getting the hops in early.  With the boil time and such, you get the whole shebang.  Low AA hops + longer time in the wort = more bittering.  You wouldn't wanna do it with Chinook or Magnum, but the fuggle works great for it.

Also, I seem to remember I threw that last bit of Amarillo in at the end instead of dry hopping.  I remember thinking how much I hated cleaning my keg out after dry hopping my ipa in it...

I have to say, the above BW kicks serious ass, and makes you hurt the next day after 2 of them.

It's mine :)  Mine all mine!

Hell, I'm gonna make a blackberry tripel at some point in the near future...

I'm not competing with them, so I might as well make em with stuff I like.  It'd be different if I was going by the guidelines, but eh...

You can still enter them in the experimental categories, if they're judging to BJCP criteria.

Time to revive this thread. I'm Bill Brasky, btw. I'm entering a homebrew contest at my bschool. It should be a good time. I'll probably brew this or next weekend in an effort to avoid studying for finals.
