    The List is up:

    IF you submitted a bottle that made the list (or bottle(s)) you SHOULD have gotten an e-mail from me. Check your e-mails folks :slight_smile:

    matched one submission on this one. rather shocked at what made the list over my other submission that didn't make the cut, but one one man's non-whale is another man's whale i suppose. what is the deadline to submit our rankings?

    Deadlines and such will be sent out soon...

    Some of the acceptances might not make a lot of sense but keep in mind... I didn't just take what I assumed were the top 50 "value" beers... Some acceptances are out of curiosity, some rejections due to too many bottles accepted (and not matching) in the past rounds :slight_smile:

    If we received the acceptance email does that mean both bottles are in if we see them on the list?

    Cheers!

    Damn...I missed the signup. I guess my bottle of 3F Millennium and my 3F 2002 Vintage Oude will have to wait until Whale BIF 6.0...

    I thought you only like "Cheap Beer". How come you pull out such big whales every single time?

    Ranked things yesterday, thought about them today, and I think I'm ready to go.

    Yeah, I started my rankings then started stressing out about them. This isn't going to be easy...glad Cam is giving us a week or so!

    So if i rank one of my bottles really low and it matches multiple bottles do you give us the highest ranked match possible?

    I'm not much of a whale hunter so I'm unreasonably jazzed about this one. By my count I've only tried about 8 of he entries, so my odds of getting something new to me are pretty good!

    My whales taste better because I am buzzed off the cheap stuff. Think of it as beer googles for beer...

    Do we just hang tight when we are done? There is a "completed" field on the top should we type yes when done?

    Urbancaver Initiate (0) Nov 13, 2009 Ohio

    Yes. Change completed to yes when youre done

    I did my ranking and really hope the way I ranked things some bottles will move. I think just wanting to try different things should be more motivation then just "beering up."

    w/r/t the DL 04-12 vertical, that should be 9 bottles, but the volume column indicates 176 oz, which would be 8 bottles. Is that just a math error?

    Urbancaver Initiate (0) Nov 13, 2009 Ohio

    I will double check but I believe that is simply a math error

    A question for 6.0 - would b1 LeBleu make the list?

    Urbancaver Initiate (0) Nov 13, 2009 Ohio

    Not sure. The decision on what makes the list is made after submissions are in and thresholds are based off what else is submitted for that round!

    Not much chatter this time around. Hope my submissions result in a "match" :slight_smile:

    I don't think I was specific enough with the last one. I knew it was a mass spectrum, but since Wikipedia says " Not all mass spectra of a given substance are the same" I assumed it would be impossible to tell exactly what substance it was :slight_frown:

    Blegh, don't type in forums early in the morning, especially when you have a hangover! My previous comment was meant for the science is cool LIF!
