All the beers that did not get 1st in their category(go to BOS round) were taken to the after-party and quite of a few of them drank. There was some good stuff in there.
Do you know how many entries there were?

Also congrats to Kevin Mattie for the 3rd for the Berliner and 1st in the High Gravity. That IIPA was tasty, but see if you can't get some more alcohol in there .

I cant, Im too embarrassed. The recipe is so simple.

OK, Im mostly an AG brewer these days, but this beer was brewed for/with one of my best buddies. And given the length of time for AG, I have a rule that guest brews are extract or pm only.

6lbs Wheat DME
1lb Wheat malt
1lb Pilsner
1oz Hallertau (3.8% 60m)
WL380 Hefe IV

BTW, congrats to you guys as well! This was a funny turn of events. I really thought my IPA was lights-out. I was so anxious to see the results cuz I thought it was a ringer. Never thought the Hefe would place and not my IPA! Fun stuff.

Nothing to be embarrassed about, you beat all of us! That is the mark of a good brewer, can make a great beer out of extract...it's all about fermentation practices!

really? you remember having it? Thanks! My buddy left me with 4 bottles (2 for the comp, and 2 for me). I wish I would have saved the 2 for now so I could relish them. He will share with me though, he is a good sport.

Ya the high gravity competition was a lot less formal than the others. The big thing, was does it have lots of alcohol and is it extremely drinkable. (can I sit down and drink this all night aside from being absolutely smashed?)
It was me and 3 other judges that did that while the judges that had categories with 20 entries battled through their flights.
The mead was a really close second to the IIPA and was really good, but yours beat it because the mead had so much residual sugar(a plus for mead imo) we didn't think it was quite as drinkable.

edit: Ah ****, I though I was talking to the other guy on here that won.

Ya after the BOS round was over, a few of us hovering around took what was left of the winning bottles and sampled.
