Hi all, I originally posted this in the ingredients forum and didn't get any hits, thought I would try here.... If an admin has a more appropriate place in mind, please move this thread.
Just looking for some advice on how to enter a strong scotch ale in a local competition. It was the first runnings I did in a partigyle brew, part of my grain bill was some 2 row that I smoked with hickory. The smoke flavor is far less present in the strong ale as compared to the lower gravity brew from the second runnings, but it is still there.
Would I be better served to enter this beer in the 22b - other smoked beer, or just stick with 9e - strong scotch ale?
Thanks in advance for any insight!
