Well, the competition was last night and we're pretty happy with our results!
We entered two American Pale Ales (same wort, different yeasts) that didn't do so hot. One tied for 21st, the other tied for 12th out of 35 entries.
We also entered two Stouts (the one in this thread but again, same wort, different yeasts). One of them placed 5th and the other placed 3rd out of 26 entries!
Our 3rd place entry was judged by two non certified judges. And our 5th place entry was judged by Professional Brewer Rob Kent (A Google search says a Rob Kent is the head brewer of Uinta in Salt Lake City UT. This competition was in CA so not sure if its the same Rob Kent but it's all I could find) and Beer Sommelier Cami Kent (Guessing husband and wife team).
Our 5th place entry got an overall 38.5 score placing it as excellent. Rob Kents overall impression was "Nice well rounded beer. Could use a little more fullness and mid range bitterness" He also noted a small presence of DMS which is an issue were currently working on with our burner.
Cami Kents overall impression was "Very nice! Actually one of the best I've had today. I wish I had more of this one." (Needless to say Cami is my favorite now). Cami also noted low DMS levels.
Our 3rd place entry got an overall 41 also putting it into the excellent category. One judges overall impression was "Very nice beer, rich and complex, balanced." The other judge thought "Strong mouthfeel warming alcohol feel well balanced tastes." This judge thought it to be a little Astringent.
Overall I'm pretty happy! Took home a little baby ribbon for the 3rd place entry hahaha but it's still cool and makes me want to brew a batch right now!
