Well... JZ is a really decorated homebrewer. He has a few awards for his beer.

JZ?

If hes someone on this forum that's cool, but I'm seriously looking for like the best and most famous homebrewer of all time. Like someone who has won many, many brewing competitions.
If you believe that is JZ, can you tell me his actual full name so I can read a bit about him?

Well upon some research I think one of the largest and well known competitions is the AHA homebrew competition.(please correct me if I'm wrong)

Now to find out who has the best record within this competition.

Jamil, I guess you could add Gordon Strong. Probably the most famous homebrewer would be Charlie Papazian I guess. Denny Conn maybe? Michael Tonnsmier? There's a guy here in Michigan named Sully who sweeps just about every contest he enters, especially every one where the prize is a pro-am brewing gig...and we all think he needs to retire so we can have a shot.

I don't know what you're getting at, are you gonna try to take them down?

Haha no, I don't think I can beat them with my coopers kit and kilo beer XD.. Just want to read some stuff about them and see if I can find any articles/books from them to learn more about the process. I like to learn from the best of the best, so I can better myself.

Frankly anyone who's gotten the Ninkasi award more than once could be put into an exclusive category. Jamil has that going for him (2 wins) and he's got more online media coverage. Gordon Strong took the Ninkasi three years in a row and he's a BJCP grand master 5 judge. Both are published authors on the topic of homebrewing.

Of course, some will argue winning homebrewing competitions doesn't mean you're better than some other homebrewer that doesn't fit competitions into their scope but really, this is the most accurate measuring stick we have.
