For the first time, Big QC Day has an encore
You asked for it, and we responded. Our surveys showed customers wanted a second Big QC Day, so this year we are having an encore. Big QC 2011 Day #2 is a great opportunity if you missed the first round in February, if you want to continue to test your beers through the year and/or you want to get feedback on beers that you will enter in the Great American Beer Festival. Sign up by July 18. Postmark your return box by July 28 and you will have feedback before the GABF deadline.
For help in reading your results, log into www.yeastman.com and access your account, email us or call 1-888-5-YEAST-5. Results are provided in your online Yeastman accounts. Instructions on interpreting results can be found here.
What is Big QC Day?
Big QC Day is the least expensive and most comprehensive way for you to continue or begin a QC program for your brewery. We offer a bundle of testing services (an over $500 value) on two beers for only $139. Shipping included for domestic customers.
You’ll get test results for such parameters as diacetyl and IBUs, as well as alcohol, calories, color, real and apparent attenuation, and microbiological contaminants and you’ll be able to compare your results to the results of craft beers from around the world.
Confidentiality: Brewery names and individual results are confidential. They will not be shared with anyone. White Labs does break down the overall results by test and region for publication on its website and elsewhere.
Signing up: To sign up visit yeastman.com and follow the links to lab products. Or call 1-888-5-YEAST-5 or email us.
Sending us back information: We welcome your sample information any way you prefer - via computer, phone or fax. Big QC Day is designed so that people order and enter their results via yeastman.com (this is the same place they can review their results after testing). Entering the information directly will reduce errors, will eliminate wasted paper and will get you results instantly instead of waiting for the mail. Just as we take yeast orders by computer and by the telephone, depending on people's preferences, we will help you through the system if you have any problems or concerns with Big QC Day testing and yeastman.com entries. We will also reenter the information ourselves if you are unable to do so via computer. Call 1-888-5-YEAST-5 or email us for help.
