Beer Evaluation

Beer Evaluation and Troubleshooting

What I have done here is compiled some beer evaluation and troubleshooting documents that you can use to help you out. Many of these come from the BJCP, others I have copied myself for my own reference and want to share with you. As I find more and more I will update this page.

Note: I have changed where my downloadable files are kept, they are now kept on Google Docs, so I hope they are easier for you to download.

Documents from the BJCP (save PDF files to your drive)

Beer Checklist and Instructions for Using Beer Checklist

Other Helpful Documents
The flavor wheels and beer wheels are similar, but done in different styles, you can pick which one you prefer to use. But they are all basically the same.
