I just figure that people will be annoyed with, "we came close, we'll do it again" on every show. I think most people in the end want the recipe and most aren't as patient as you.
Thanx for the answer JZ. Love the shows! Well if you only tried it blind the first time, then interviewed the brewer you'd only be saying "we came close, we'll do it again" every other show.
Besides, I bet you guys would start nailing them without the brewers help half of the time anyway. You and Tasty are like the Dynamic Bruo.
Plus that way we get two recipes. The close one, which is probably a fine interpretation, just not quite true to form, and then the true one. I'd enjoy brewing the one that is close. I'd just tell my friends, yeah I like Arrogant Bastard, but I wanted to change things up a bit with my interpretation. Then when they laugh and say I just wasn't able to brew it right I could brew up the second one where you guys nailed it and be like Hey! Check dis chit out while you're bull $hittin.
